My super-duper Peace & Love playlist

Neutral Milk Hotel! Cat Stevens and Joni and Billy Bragg! I needed at least two !! (which I never use!) to describe my feelings about your playlist. It's a beautiful thing. xo

Thank you Miss M. I know it's full of old chestnuts but I can't help loving them; they cheer me up. Also, Neutral Milk Hotel makes me cry, but in a good way. Music is the key to life. Truly.
