    Nice! Most of those songs are on John’s mp3 as well. I also added the Relient K version of ‘The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything’ and Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode’. I love the Plant/Krauss stuff! (heard a nasty rumour that LZ is going to record a new album w/o Robert Plant) Great start Paul!

    wow! I wish I had an ipod with this playlist. or knew how to do that. or had one for my 5 yo. It looks awesome. how about some creedence? Rush “lessons”? hmm. I don’t know. what a lucky kid. Luella loves Allison Krauss and (she calls him Johniffer Plant) for some reason. Happy Birthday!

  3. ok I’m going to ignore how much phil collins you’re exposing sweet little innocent peanut to. however, other than that this is an awesome list. I’m so thankful I’m not the only one who thinks Mr. Wendel is just great. Guthrie has just discovered the Violent Femmes. She hearts them. She has no idea what they’re singing about though… I think that is short lived.

    Oh does Mr. Wendel ever bring back memories. I will always think of Byron when I hear it. Thanks for the blast from the past there Pauly!

    Somewhere Over the Rainbow by “IZ” or Israel Kamakawiwo. You’ve heard it before, I’m sure.
