I dig the Bob Marley for sure but I would love to see some Beatles added to this list
The Beatles are certainly fantastic for the car ride to the beach (especially Rubber Soul) and I would add the new Smith Westerns lp to the list as well. Titled Dye It Blonde, this album may well end up being my favorite for 2011.
These all are awesome. Very good songs. I love them. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and with album list
