Parties without music are like coffee without caffeine ... just not very satisfying. And since people have different tastes, I've found it helpful to make a mix that combines different genres with a little something for everyone. Mixing the songs into a single mp3 file make it hard for people to "skip" past what I like, something I learned after years of hosting New Years Eve parties. These are always evolving, but the 2014 soundtrack is here for your listening pleasure.
The advantage of mixing the songs is that I can cut out portions I don't like and make the transition between songs more like what you might get from a DJ. And it's fun :) Click to play the deck or right click to download. Each is about 100MB.
