Drunken recollections, boring anecdotes, and obscure references

I spent a lot of money and I spent a lot of time

I put together a 2004 retrospective CD. It's by no means comprehensive, but a lot of the stuff I left off is the obvious stuff a lot of mixes I've seen have (Hmmm, will this one start with Take Me Out, or close with it?). These are just things I like I think other people should have a chance to listen to.
