Sybil’s Garage No. 7 Playlist

It’s been a tradition in Sybil’s Garage for every author and poet to suggest a musical accompaniment to their piece.  For issue 7, I’ve compiled all the songs into an iTunes playlist (below).  For those who don’t have iTunes, I’m also posting the unabridged list of songs.  The asterisks (*) signify that I could not find the song on iTunes, and so I substituted one from the same band, if possible.  There’s also a story behind the Neutral Milk Hotel songs and how they’re connected to the writing in the marginalia of the print issue.  I hope to get to that story in another post.

Here’s the iTunes playlist:
