I burned a CD for my father last night, which I plan to ship to him today. As I readied the envelope I had another look at the tracks, all taken from CDs (or MP3s) that I own, that I thought he’d like…or at least find interesting. Here’s the tracklist:

  1. Natalie Merchant – Sally Ann
  2. The Be Good Tanyas – Reuben
  3. Damien Jurado – Window
  4. My Morning Jacket – Dancefloors
  5. HEM – Half An Acre
  6. We Five – You Were On My Mind
  7. Varnaline – Hear The Birds Cry
  8. The Thorns – Runaway Feeling
  9. The Shangri La’s – The Train From Kansas City
  10. Raising The Fawn – Gwendolyn
  11. The Morganfields – Rainbreaker
  12. Mike Ness – I Fought The Law
  13. Laurie Styvers – Beat The Reaper
  14. Johnny Cash w/ Bonnie Prince Billy – I See A Darkness
  15. The Drive-By Truckers – Danko/Manuel
  16. Catherine Irwin – Cry Our Little Eyes Out
  17. The Black Keys – Brooklyn Bound
  18. Bob Mould & Vic Chestnutt – Hickory Wind
  19. Son Volt – Open All Night

The fact that my Dad — who’s 61 — will (probably) like songs by The Be Good Tanyas, Damien Jurado, My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Bob Mould & Son Volt makes him cooler than 99% of the people half his age.

Well…musically, anyway. 😉
