Mixtape: Birthday Soul

By Davidkazuhiro (Transferred from en.wikipedia) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Another Ray Ray Birthday. Another mixtape.

We’re on our fifth installment in this series and I’ve been told this is Ray Ray’s favorite gift. (She actually told me that. Apologies to the rest of you.)

I’m not entirely sure what prompted me to focus on a singular theme this time around – might have been a long discussion we had about Otis Redding and how you could put his music on at any time and it would be appropriate. I almost dare you to try and argue otherwise.

I must confess, though, to being a bit pressed for time on this one. We’re still setting in now that we’re back and the usual job pressures have not let up. Perhaps it was just ease and laziness to stick with one genre, pick some outstanding and eternal music and put it together for the one I love.

So here it is. Enjoy.
