LIL MIX Volume 8

Sean asked me to contribute a compilation for this fun Live in Limbo series.  My first thought was to compile a best of 2015 as I comb voraciously through 100 + albums acquired that were released this year in an attempt to figure out my top albums of 2015, which is coming soon.  Instead I remembered a survey sent to me years ago that I think about all the time – what would the soundtrack to your life be?  There were about 20 scents to match songs with but this is the music of the Milkey Musical.  Bookended by what would be the opening and closing credits are songs that represent something of me over the years.  It has been brutal trying to limit to 21 but here we go.
