Playlist: Southwest songs for I-10 west of San Antonio


It’s been a few minutes since I’ve posted a playlist, and I’m up (yet again) at the buttcrack of dark attempting to will my granulocytes (a subtype of white blood cell responsible for histamine release) to take all their little granular mess they’ve dumped all over and stuff it back into themselves.  So, I think we’re due.  (Some of these came out of Breaking Bad, whereas others were merely inspired by it.  You’ve been warned.  Not that it wasn’t an absolutely stellar soundtrack or anything.)  In randomly random order…
