Odysseus went to see Guardians of the Galaxy, not too long ago. He came home and reported that the soundtrack was really, really good, if it was the mix tape that the character's mother had made for him when he was a child.
So, I looked it up...and found that it would be perfect (or nearly so) for Mom for her birthday (which was today--she turned 69, and I treasure each birthday she's around to celebrate).
The CD comes with auto-rip, which means that you get the MP3 album for free. We used it to double-check to make sure it really was the songs I remembered Mom loving...and it very much is. It really is a fun collection of music, with only two songs that are more average than awesome.
Go take a look. It really is a fun bit of music.
(And yes, my mom is happy...and my aunts are jealous. It was, overall, a good birthday for her.)
