80 Proof Playlist

80 Proof Playlist (SBP)

I’ve been reading Ace’s blog seriously since sometime February last year. I enjoy what he has to say and find myself going over old posts every now and then. Another thing that really keeps me coming back is the music. He picks songs for each new post he makes and they all have relevance to the issue at hand. Listening to the songs enhances the reading experience immensely.

Also – Ace has fantastic taste in music. So without further ado – I present the 80 Proof Playlist: 72 of the best* songs. Here it is on youtube.
