The one overlooked Lotusphere item. The Playlist.

Remember the mix tape?  Back in the day, it was the soundtrack of your life.  As soon as you got your drivers license it was one of the first things you did.  Well, that's not true.  I remember doing the "tape a song on your boom box off the radio" deal to get all the songs you like when I was younger.  But still, you wanted your music to go with you.
Now fast forward 30 years and most all of us of some form of iToy or DROIDDDDDDDDD.....  And those devices make it pretty simple to take tunes with you and not have to deal with all those cassettes.  Now, it's just power cords and sync cables taking all the space in your bag.
So here is my LS12 playlist.  What's yours?

You really think you'll have time to listen to *any* of that?

Mick, you make a great point. But, there is downtime in the airport, the ride in and walking between venues. So it's a nice to have ;-)

I have my portable 8 Track player ready, too :)

See you at the 'sphere!

Due to the fact that I travel from Germany to US, I will take a lot of music with me.

But I'm more in the "more speed less melody" type of music. There will be a lot of Punk and Metal. But there will be some real classics from AC/DC, Motörhead und Ramones too. (Who like them should check out "The Bones", "Danko Jones" and "Volbeat" which are on the playlist too)

Can't wait to get on the plane! Of course due to the music and it' my first LS (maybe the last?). Hope it will rock too ;-)
