Volume Two

Posted on December 15, 2003

My second compilation for —for the 2003 holiday season—is a sore spot for me to this day. Individually, I like all of of the songs obviously, but as a compilation I don't feel it flows particularly well and I never really finished handing out copies of this to friends. It is too long, has too many repeat artists from the first Music for Penguins, and the constraint of only choosing songs available on the iTunes store at the time caused more problems than it solved
