Okay, so these songs don't really have anything to do with starting a fire. I was at work talking to Debbie about music one day and she said to me, "Hey Katie, you should make me a mix so I'll know who you're talking about." Not wanting to disappoint, I got right on it. Unfortunately, I had to cut a ton of songs off because I couldn't fit them all on one disc. So how did I solve this problem? It's quite simple: make another one! These are the songs that I wanted to put on her first mix but just didn't have room for.
