Loose Ends

I first got XM Radio in high school and let me tell you, its pretty remarkable. XMU (43) changed my life. Hearing constantly random sequences of challenging, interesting music made my rides to school so much more interesting. To that end, a kept a pen and pad of paper in the car at all times to mark down any song that truly blew me away. Then I graduated to the iPhone and a handy little app called Shazam. As many of you know Shazam basically listens to the song playing and has the ungodly ability to tell you the name of the song and the artist. I have been collecting "tagged" songs for well over a year now and I am finally getting around to forming a Greatest Hits collection. This is what I have for you today. These are 6 songs that have little to nothing to do with each other but each of them sparked an interest in a great artist--it goes without saying, I am better for it.
