Explain your GT mixtape!

There are so many comments and so much discussion on the original post (which is good!) but comments are never really that great for extended explanations, of the length that I prefer. I know this music is supposed to explain us probably without additional commentary, or allow us to interpret people based on some strange slice of their personality (or music library :P). But I like to explain stuff, and reading why other people chose certain songs is both interesting and informative.

So in an organized fashion, I invite you to explain your choices in a post on your personal blog, and post the link in the comments, so we can follow you over there to read your listicle.*
