Rexblog Playlist 003

Rexblog Playlist 003: It’s Friday and it’s been a tradition here on the rexblog for exactly two weeks, that every Friday, I post a playlist of that week’s bumper music so that we can all line up our weekend iTunes downloading plans. I hope some of the seven readers of this weblog find this whole bumper tunes thing amusing. Frankly, I’ve never checked to see if anyone’s ever downloaded one. I’m finding the serendipitous results of a 30-second tune search (my self-imposed limit) are almost always amusing. Sort of like when I used to (as a goofy teenager) flip through the church hymnal and add the phrase “under the sheets” to each title. Come to think of it, you could play that game with this playlist.
