I made this mix for my friend Kerrie who likes maps. She is a cartographer and last year she wanted to make a mix for her colleagues for Christmas with songs that have the word "map" in them. I offered her a few suggestions and ever since I keep hearing songs with that lyric. So here you go Kerrie, enjoy!
