The point of the first mix was to post 199 tracks, and call it the 200 songs I had to hear before I went away. The last track was left off deliberately, not wanting to really call it quits.
I understand that running a website is a rather taxing thing, and wildly divergent and diverging personalities can make things tense, and while it was a good ride, and it is poetic this way, that doesn't mean I haven't actually shed a few tears over the pending end.
So, I started thinking about track 200. Obvious picks, IMHO, and once again the Train into Kings Of Leon combo, because of all the pairings I have managed, this is one of my favorites.
The last three are really all there is for me to say.... Live Free and Ride Hard.
Sadly, the image I chose won't load up. From one of the most neglected films in film history, Chaplin's The Circus, it is IMHO possibly the best film of his career. At the very end, the circus leaves town in a cloud of dust and military fury of motion, and when the dust settles, there stands the little fellow, and he walks into the sunset.
A perfect ending.
