And the winner is....

The CD is finished and it's a beauty.  I'm getting ready to pack it up and send it on its merry way to the giveaway winner -- commenter #5:  Barb, sfo!!  Please email me your mailing address:  livingpalm1ATgmailDOTcom.  Two things make me think that commenter #5 and I might become fast friends:
1. her suggestion of the site Paperback Swap was fabulous. I've already mailed out five books and found bunches in return!  
2. We both love A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Want to see the mix tape track list?  As you can see, it was way too  hard to narrow down to fifteen songs so the winner gets five bonus tracks.  I chose songs from musicians I've highlighted in Monday Mix Tape posts over the past year or so.  In choosing the order, I stole an idea from my friend Margaret who recently gave away mix tapes to some friends, arranging them thematically from morning songs to evening songs.

1.   In the Morning by Brian Moss from Prayerbook, No. 1
2.   All Things New by Andrew Peterson from Resurrection Letters Volume 2
3.   Fancy Free by Miriam Jones from Being Here
4.   White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes from Fleet Foxes
5.   Colors by April Smith and the Great Picture Show from Songs for a Sinking Ship
6.   Gasoline and Matches by Buddy & Julie Miller from Written in Chalk
7.   Here Comes Your Man by Meaghan Smith from (500) Days of Summer soundtrack
8.   Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show from O.C.M.S.
9.   Half a Person by The Welcome Wagon from Welcome to The Welcome Wagon
10. Trouble by Over the Rhine from The Trumpet Child
11. Messed Up Everywhere Blues by Jason Harrod from Bright As You
12. Waiting for My Day by Jason Harrod from Living in Skin
13. New Redemption Song by Over the Rhine from Snow Angels
14. American Legion by The Welcome Wagon from Welcome to The Welcome Wagon
15. Twice As Good by Sara Groves from Fireflies and Songs
16. The Trumpet Child by Over the Rhine from The Trumpet Child
17. Moondance (Live) by Over the Rhine from Live from Nowhere, Volume One
18. Chasing Pirates by Norah Jones from The Fall (Deluxe Version)

The final two songs on the disc are just two of my all-time favorite forever songs:
20. Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley from Grace

And, since you couldn't all win, here's an excerpt from the mix tape -- just because I like you so much!  Happy weekend.  May we all add our broken hallelujahs to the world around us.
