“Running Late”

A few years ago, around 2010, i made this mix for my wife. She had been gathering a (quite justified) reputation of unrepentant unpunctuality. It got so bad that people actually began liying to her about appointments, telling her they were half-an-hour or so earlier so that she could show up barely on time. This would later prove counter-productive because she caught on and would generously compensate… >_<

So I jokingly (but actually seriously) made this mix of some of our favorite jams that happened to mention time, or lateness in their lyrics or titles.  The result was a very enjoyable mix that many friends said perfectly captured her personality of unfashionable late-ness.  This, of course, did nothing to assuage it, but the theme in the mix yielded a surprisingly palatable album.

I don’t know why it’s taken me 5 years to upload it, but here it is… better late than never, aptly. Hope you like the music on your way to a late appointment 😉
