More Often Than Not

Hibernation, hyper nation. The inevitable is forgettable.
Rhythm and rhyme pass the time as dusks dream of dawning

Yeah whatever here’s some jazz you might like. Substitute for holiday tunes and hang in there with me, we’ll get through this together. Can you handle an hour of hastily hacked together jazzers, like torn bits of pages from the Great American Songbook glued ransom-note-style across your ears? Probably.

  1. Hey, I remember Summery! To be entirely honest, that wasn’t really ‘my style’ but judging from the catalogue of names in this one, I’m gonna love it. 37 seconds to go for download… American Songbook, I love thee! Thanks.

  2. Dude, awesome …

    For anyone who doesn’t know, you can burn a cue sheet on an audio CD and it will be readable by many CD players that display text. Or at least I think that’s how it works, I’ll have to try it myself. Many software music players can read cue sheets as well — not iTunes, but I know there’s a plugin for Winamp. Check this Wikipedia article for more info (and supported software).

    I’ve uploaded this as a .cue file and edited out the original text.
