If you read my story on geocaching in Sunday’s Central Coast Living, you saw that one of the “hidden treasures” I left behind was a CD of songs I put together. My goal was to assemble a collection of tunes that a geocacher could listen to while hunting. Either they have a traveling theme or they just work well for driving. (The image to the right is the hastily put together cover art.)
If you haven’t read the story, geocaching is basically a treasure hunt where you use a device like an iPod as a GPS to find things other people have hidden. If you take their “treasure,” you’re expected to leave one behind.
Photographer Joe Johnston and I went on a hunt to see what it was like.
Anyway, I couldn’t detail my CD too much in the story — space limitations and all — so I thought I’d post my track listing here:
* Please Don’t Go — Stevie Wonder
* San Francisco Days — Chris Isaak
* Two of Us — the Beatles
* Ramblin’ Man — Allman Brothers Band
* (Everybody Wanna Get Rich) Rite Away — Dr. John
* So. Central Rain (I’m Sorry) — R.E.M.
* Mr. Blue Sky — Electric Light Orchestra
* Sail On — The Commodores
* Roam — B-52s
* Dancing in the Moonlight — King Harvest
* Hurts So Good — John Cougar
* The Blackest Lily — Corinne Bailey Rae
* Beast of Burden — Rolling Stones
* On the Road Again — Willie Nelson
* Love Man — Otis Redding
* Across the Great Divide — The Band
* Impossible Germany — Wilco
