This Week's Playlist. It really hit me this week as I watched debate on the House and Senate floors and in committees that there has been a ton of change. Insert your own "Well, duh Brad!" comment here. A lot of new legislators. A ton of new staff. A few new procedures. It all makes for an interesting stew. It's taking some getting used to, but this week's playlist is all about change, as each title has the word "change" or some permutation of it, in the title. If this doesn't help get you with the new program, I don't know what will.

Track #1: "Change of the Guard" by Steely Dan
Track #2: "Changes" by David Bowie
Track #3: "Things Have Changed" by Bob Dylan
Track #4: "I'd Love to Change the World" by Ten Years After
Track #5: "You've Changed" by Billie Holliday
Track #6: "Changes" by Bernard Purdie (instrumental version of the Buddy Miles' hit).
Track #7: "Time Changes Everything" by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys
Track #8: "Same Changes" by Sam Phillips
Track #9: "Changed Your Mind" by Chris Isaak
Track #10: "Change Partners" by Ella Fitzgerald (not the Steven Stills song)
Track #11: "Change of Heart" by Change (takes me back to the old Classic Motor Company)
Track #12: "It's Been a Change" by Solomon Burke
Track #13: "You Can't Change That" by Raydio (I once met Ray Parker Jr. Impressed?)
Track #14: "You're Gonna Change" by Hank Williams, Sr. (not Jr. or III)
Track #15: "Seasons Change" by Corrine Bailey Rae (to prove I have music from post-2000)
Track #16: "Change of Heart" by Eric Carmen (different song from Change's)
Track #17: "Wind of Change" by Peter Frampton
Track #18: "A Change" by Aretha Franklin
Track #19: "Everything Must Change" by Quincy Jones
Track #20: "A Change is Gonna Come" by The Band (the old Sam Cooke song re-done)

It's a nice mix to listen to while driving around and, corny as it sounds, some of the lyrics of these songs indirectly hit at a lot of the change we are facing. Anyway, next mix coming up next Friday!
