My Little Girl Is Turning One!

Happy Birthday Maria Justine! Whew, I can't believe it's been a year already. In light of this momentous occasion, I thought I'd put together a special "Girl" themed comp. Last year after our birth announcements went out, we got a fabulous disc from our good friend Laura (who, by the way, has a most excellent radio show/blog here: Needles + Pins ) titled "Oh, Girl - Welcome MJ!" I can't tell you how many times we listened to it. Even though she snagged many of the best "Girl" songs, I managed to find a few that I thought were pretty good as well. With her permission (fingers crossed!) I would gladly share her compilation here at Burn and Shine. For the time being, you'll just have to whet your appetite with mine.

A couple of quick words about my comp. My last installment featured the first Rolling Stones appearance, and today's playlist features the Who making their first showing on a Burn and Shine compilation. Seriously, I have no idea why it has taken me so long for either of these artists, but I'm sure they will show up again in the future. I actually left off one of my favorite Kinks tracks, "Nothin' in This World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout My Girl", because they have shown up a few times already-- go figure. Finally, I just wanted to be sure that you realize that track #22 is actually by an American band called the Bats which featured Jon Brion-- not to be confused with the fantastic New Zealand combo of the same name, which have not yet been featured on B&S.

Happy Listening!
