New addition to my collection. Yeah, this sums up my mood. I've been to three conferences for work, during the last 45 days. "We" were able to accomplish a lot making contacts for work, but I'm burnt out on business. I'm putting my notice in that I'm taking all of July off. Thanks. Killer solo by Ace.

July 3 marks 12 years from the day that I left Portugal and the day that I finally get to set foot in Virgin Retail Ltd. This is the song I will sing to myself as I commence the first wave of mass music binging on this trip. This has been a dream of mine for some time.

Track 4 from Mantaray
Length: 00:04:24
Year: 2007
Track Description:
For a long time, up until last year, I would have sold both kidneys to see Siouxsie Sioux and Budgie perform together. They divorced near the end of last Summer. I like this song the most, from her first solo album, mostly out of spite. I don't think she can pull this song off live. There is xylophone played on the track, and I'm pretty sure Budgie will not be playing that part live. After the show, I'm inviting her to travel with me, by train, to Rotterdam. She will accept my proposal.

Great, great song. I quiz Siouxsie about her relationship with Budgie and get some closure as to why mommy and daddy are not together anymore. We will part on good terms and she will have to fly to Pisa, Italy for her show on the 6th. I set up camp and look for vinyl shops until I get to see...

...DeVotchKa and Murder By Death at the Metropolis Festival at Zuiderpark in Rotterdam (Netherlands) on the 6th. I'm able to find an unused Babel fish (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and I feel much less like a tourist. This is such a great song and a wonderful addition to this vacay's soundtrack. Does anyone say "vacay"? Next...

This is for day one of our What Not To Wear week of shopping in New York (with or without Clinton and Stacy). What a sweet, upbeat song. I imagine us on a movie treadmill with a video of New York streets passing behind us. It's one of those soundtracky songs. Loving it.

Track 2 from Friday I'm In Love
Length: 00:03:50
Year: 1992
Track Description:
This week is all about my wife (it is the very least I can do - she's letting me go for four weeks). She and I watch What Not To Wear several times every week (thanks TiVo) and I'd love for her to have a chance to improve her wardrobe. The details of my wife's credit card are not important, let's pretend Ophrah, Ryan Seacrest, Stephanie Meyer or someone provides a pre-paid bottomless account, so Megz is allowed to purchase what she wants, without that yucky comsumers' remorse.

My wife made this song real for me. Thank you (forever), sweety.

Another dream come true - seeing The New Mastersounds. They play day two at the very first Mile High Music Festival. I'm stoked, because I will get to see Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Flogging Molly, The Roots and Spoon. If The Roots and TNM jam together it is guaranteed that Yanni's head will inexpicably roll from his neck. You read it here first.

I've been feeling this song. Sat. July 19th - maybe they'll perform this one. This starts off my road trip to San Francisco, for one last concert. I have 1,250 plus miles to travel, from Denver to Berkeley, and that should give me time enough to make memories with all (most) of the music I've purchased so far.

I just reread the outline for the contest and noticed it is called "Vacay". I subconsciously carried that with me, but forgot what I had read. Ignore the question at the end of Track 8's comment.
