I've taken all 46 of the songs from The Katie Songs archive (previously posted individually above and listed along the right) and put them into a single Last.Fm widget, which I've added to this blog. You can access individual songs or the full playlist by scrolling through the widget, or by clicking on it and following the link to a Last.Fm page.
As with the list we came up with on Katie's birthday, I thought this might be a good occasion for folks to exchange particular memories and associations, while also expanding the playlist. So, if you see a song that you think should be on the playist, post it as a comment here, and I'll add it. And, if you feel comfortable, share a good memory (or two or three) linked with the song. Might be some good cross-associations: same song, different memories, etc.
A big shout-0ut to Cathy Ganz, who emailed to suggest I add Alison Krauss's cover of "Baby, Now That I've Found You,"and thus got this ball rolling. Cathy and Katie would apparently play dueling repeats when they lived together, Katie cueing up Alison Krauss against Cathy's preference for Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Funny, as I associate the song as the soundtrack to some epic chess showdowns in Katie's apartment on Deming St., in Chicago, right after Peace Corps. Oh, wild youth!
