GADFLY'S BEST-OF 2002: Can You Feel The Magic? WELL, CAN YOU?! ANSWER ME!!!


SMILE! YOU FOUND MY SPECIAL SECRET SPOT!!! that I've managed to scare you into a catatonic fugue state, let's get down to business...

About The Disc: You've probably noticed that there are more songs on your compilation than there are tracks from which to flip back and forth. Annoying, huh? Yeah, well, that's what you get when you use a broken stereo component CD burner to put together a mix comp, rather than a fancy-schmancy CD-ripper built into your computer. You see, I try to keep it real by staying up to date with the latest technologies while at the same time making my resources as ramshacklefully white-trash as possible, at all times. Yee-haw.

So anyway, here's the list of songs included in my 2002 Best-Of compilation, in the order they appear on your disc. By all means, let me know which were your faves, which were big turn-offs, and which just plain scared you.

And if I'm not already enjoying your mix compilation tape or CD of 2002 faves, GET CRACKIN', cracky!
