Thread: California Mix

  1. #1

    Default California Mix

    So I'm asking for some help on this. I'm making a mix for driving to California, since every time I do it, I wish I had made this. The idea is that every song prominently features either the word California, or a city in California, or the idea of traveling to/through/in California. Its hard to compile a list on my own, so here's what I'm asking. Every post should be a copied and pasted version of the list as it exists, and then any songs you choose to add. The length is not a factor. I am planning on making this 3-4 cds long. Thanks. I'll start the list, and any help you guys can provide would help. After I compile it, I can post it in a yousendit link, also. And remember "artist - title"

    Led Zeppelin - Going to California
