Summer Mixtape # 4 – Story Songs

June 24, 2018

Almost all songs tell a story; through the soundscapes created or the emotional lyrics… but not all songs sound like an actual short story put to music. This playlist is an ode to the classic country and folk songs of the 60’s and 70’s that really told a story – real or fictional.
