The Tale of the Traveling Playlist

This playlist has been following me everywhere I go, whether it be the road, down the street or the gym.    Sometimes people make up ‘Soundtracks of their Life”.  This didn’t start out as being that, but naturally just became that.  Although I personally think my soundtrack for life would be much much longer, but meh, whatever.  So here it goes.  If only I could actually find sound-bite attachment to these songs, I would provide them but it be true that  Miss. Ally here is no technological coinoisseur.  I have indicated how I feel/most immediate memories that surface in response to these songs, hence, why they are on my untitled playlist.
