Music to Combat Commuting Doldrums 2010

For a very long time, I’ve made a mix entitled Music to Combat Commuting Doldrums.  It started as a joke for a friend who graduated college before me, and was then faced with a daily commute.  If you’ve ever tried to navigate the highways outside of a major metropolitan area, you can identify with the title.  The MCCD series is now limited to a spring mix and an end-of-year mix.  It’s not intended to be a “best of” mix, but rather a bunch of songs I enjoyed from the past year.  I am also mixing a Best of Blogophilia for 2010.  If you download each of these mixes, you’ll have a pretty nice 2010 double sampler.  Enjoy!
