Musical soundtrack: I’ve made a playlist that includes Harper Blynn, Children of Eden, Barton Hollow, Andrew Peterson, and Jessica Lea Mayfield.
Songs that I’ve been singing: “Oompa Loompa” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Yeah… I’ve got no explanation for that one…. Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason,” “A Ring of Stones,” “In Whatever Time We Have,” and “Stranger to the Rain” from Children of Eden.
