Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Various Artists - MOJO Presents Songs In The Key Of Paul (2013)

Free with the November 2013 issue of MOJO magazine, this compilation disc is promoted as "a collection of McCartney inspired power pop perfection."  Perfection?  That's a little much, but it does start out strong and only has a few skippable tracks.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD:  The magazine was an impulse buy in October 2013 for three reasons: 1) McCartney, and 2) I needed something to read on the plane, and 3) free power pop CD.

I'm not a MOJO subscriber, but I enjoy looking at this site for the compilation CD info:
