So...Classic Mixes

In my cleaning up and cleaning out I have come across lots of CD mixes.
Most of them are scratched and not very pleasant to listen too.
But I still feel making mixes is a dying art, and I have a hard time parting with them.
Someday I want to make digital playlists of all of these awesome mixes!
And so I thought I'd document (and share) them here - since they're pretty awesome and I don't want to lose them.

These first four are part of a CD collection I made for Little Brother on his 16th birthday.
If I remember correctly, I made him 16 mixes.
Nothing says "I love you" - in this case "Happy Birthday" - than a homemade mix CD.
These four are some of my favorite classic rock songs.
Oh how I love classic rock!
If you're ever craving some classics, this is a great list to pull from.
Trust me.

Speaking of which...did you know that Bon Jovi, Gun N Roses, Def Leppard, and Nirvana can now be heard on classic rock radio stations?!  Pretty crazy, but so awesome. 
Who woulda thought that hair bands and grunge rock would live amongst the legends of rock and roll?
Well, I hoped they would - and glad that they have made their way there.

I don't know A LOT of those songs by name but I bet if I heard them, I'd realize I do know them.

Good job on your spring cleaning!
