Mix Tape #6 - Words Not Allowed On Art Of The Mix 1 - Char!

I really like Art of the Mix. The people there are intelligent and good looking and it's a great place to find interesting music.

I'm not sure why I'm compelled to post playlists there, but I do. The sad thing is some dumbasses started uploading malicious code to the site, and now certain words are not allowed when you post. Which can lead to a really frustrating scavenger hunt.

One of the prohibited words is 'char' and, just for fun, I searched my files for those letters to see what would pop out. Surprisingly, a fun and listenable mix. Whee!

It includes Ray Charles singing "It's Not Easy Being Green." Which I've always loved. Just because I want to say, "Someone please tell him he's not green!"

Here's a youtube of it. I think the person who made it videotaped his or her tv.
