The Sixes

One of my best friends once told me of a theory about the 6th song of every CD. Though most of the time, it is the songs in the middle of a CD which mean the most, most people deem them skippable. If you don’t take time to notice even the skippables in life, you might never experience the beauty & wealth of the sixes. So as a tribute to both good friendship and good music, I compile six songs per most playlists to share the beauty. There are other mixes on here as well, so sit back and press play.
