CELEB: RDA with dog

Challenge: NaNo Playlist Bonanza Part 2

Open to all, whether you are doing an official NaNo activity or not.

Challenge: Adopt-a-Playlist
Deadline: Nov 30 11:59 pm your local time :=D
Reward: I'll make cover art for your playlist for anyone who writes 500 words total (You'll have to either link to the playlist or list the tracks (artist - song title) if you want your reward to have a track listing on it)
Graphics alternative: For those that are working on graphics rather than words - how about 5 icons or one larger graphic in lieu of the 500 words?
