Playlist of the Week: Weekender 6

25 days to my 7 day weekend.



 (Has it really been nearly 2 months since my last, ahem, "Playlist of the WEEK"?)

Oh yeah, and Boomer.  If you get it, you got it and if you don't, you'll live.


There are TWO ways to listen to this playlist!  The Spotify version of the playlist is located directly below the track listing. Not a Spotify subscriber?  No problem. Directly below the Spotify playlist, an 8tracks playlist (requiring no subscription) is also found below.  Just press the 'play' button on the box and rock.  (Works on computers or mobile devices.)
