To New York, By Song

I’m driving up to New York, leaving in an hour or so, and given the weather conditions and traffic estimates, I am currently planning on arriving at Norm and Vicky’s at approximately 6:15 PM.

I am listening to my autobiography playlist on the drive up and, given my time estimates, I predict that I will arrive at Norm and Vicky’s just as the 67th song on the list (One Night In Bangkok) is coming to an end. This is, of course, assuming I start on song 1. That means the drive is long enough to take me from my earliest musical memories into 7th grade.

I’ll post later and let you know how long it actually took and what song I was really on once I got there.
