Susan’s Song of the Week (and Playlists!) for the Week of Aug 13-17, 2012

I’ll tell you the truth:  I’m tired.  After sabbatical-ing since May, I’m not used to teaching every day.  I’m writing a cool blog post (about telling the truth) that I’m excited to share, but it’s not ready yet.  So today, I offer you a song of the week and the playlists from my classes.  EnJoy and look for the Truth post in the next couple of days.

Song of the week: Drifting Away (Paradiso Mix) by Faithless
