my keep-calm-and-carry-on playlist, july 2009 edition

All about Balance.  And Constant Craving. And Brown Sugar.  Photographed with Nikon D300, 60mm macro lens.

I receive a couple of questions the other day, asking what songs were on my playlist that I was taking with me on my trip.  So, today I thought I'd share the 25 songs that made it onto my iPod.  You'll note that there is really no rhyme nor reason to the songs I included: my only two criteria were that the song either (a) soothe me or (b) make me happy.  That's it.  It appears, therefore, I have very haphazard taste.

So anyway, here they are.  As I do with every song of the day that I feature on this site, the first link in each listing will take you to an audio file where you can here the song in its entirety; the second link takes you to, where you can purchase and download an mp3 file of the song.
