Two things that I absolutely need to get any decent work done are coffee and music. This week I decided I needed to create a playlist of my favorite songs about coffee.
When I told my 17 year old kid that I had made a “Coffee Mix”, she initially told me how dorky that was. Then she asked me if I planned on “including that Lucinda Williams song? You know … ‘Car Wheels on a Gravel Road’. It has that great line about ‘smell of coffee, eggs, and bacon’.” And at that moment, I realized that I had succeeded as a parent. I have probably failed her in dozens of ways over the years, but at least I know I have succeeded in imparting a decent appreciation of music to her. I couldn’t be more proud.
So, here is my “Cup o’ Joe” mix, including ‘Car Wheels on a Gravel Road’. I hope you enjoy it, and that maybe you discover some new music to try.
