Then you remember it's coming from one of your burned CDs entitled, "MmmBop times Infinity?" You know what I'm saying? It's tough. It's really, really tough. Anything happening today where it's OK to blast my jams? - Jamie Requina, Kearns---

Jamie, Playlists require careful thought and planning. It's important to remember to not overplay one song, even if it is Hansen's masterpiece. Here's a few options for today:

Legendary musician Marshall Crenshaw will be at The State Room tonight at 8. Tickets are $20.
