This playlist is guaranteed to get you fired up for the start of school (or at least fired up). It’s filled with tracks about summer love, books, history, and teenage romance, all leading, inevitably, to songs of teenage angst.
On the way to work the other day, I experienced a powerful musical juxtaposition involving Anthony D’Amato’s “Holy War.”
A staple of my teenage radio-listening days was the “Old, New, Borrowed and Blue” sets on WNEW in New York. This iteration features all female vocalists.

To mark my 45th birthday, I created a playlist that is nothing less than a musical journey through my entire rock ‘n’ roll listening life.
To mark the start of baseball season, Fine Tuning compiled a playlist of the Top 25 MLB Walk-Up Songs. Why 25? Because that’s the number of players on an active MLB roster, of course. See which players and teams have the best taste in music (and which team has the worst).

Trigger Hippy’s self-titled debut album mixes rock, blues and country. The musical combinations at play create a sound that is both fresh and classic.
