Hotchplotch, yum, pop, slurp!

Note: Since it is not obvious to share music, let try using easy stuff at hand: for those using a Spotify account, give a look at the public playlist (or see the player below); for others consider the Youtube links (or see the instructions below).

It seems we are locked down, again; I do a playlist list, again.

I am old enough to have prepared mixtapes for my walkperson cassette. The idea is the same. I wake up more or less early, I prepare a strong black coffee and I think of a theme or a song. Then I try to collect 5 related songs. That's all. Somehow, a lock-down log. No special meaning for the ranking, sometimes for the sequences-—inside the topic of the day or from one topic to the other. Pun will be harder than with French.

The initial idea is freely inspired by High Fidelity (movie and TV show; not read the novel yet). The number #1 is written down on April, 1rst and let see how many days then… With the first edition, I discovered the ressource is endless, based on what I listened or listen or what is still uncovered. Moreover, it seems a good opportunity to send news, isn't it?

Feel free to drop by email your 5 songs on a theme already listed or be mad, cook your own. Usually, I add the mention contributed by, though it can also be under the hood. :-)
