I had a Top 75 Tracks prepared and then decided not only to not finalize it but to get rid of the playlist altogether. Having taken the train to Minneapolis, I didn't do anywhere near the amount of re-listening on the rails I'd planned to. In fact, I barely listened to music at all, opting instead to get loads of reading done. I have another day and a half of Amtrak before landing in New York for a spell, and I'm not anticipating I'll listen much more. Either way, it'll probably be a while.
