The Upload Project #1

So, in a vain attempt to find the battery charger to our weed wacker, I rolled up my sleeves and started emptying out the last boxes in the basement and discovered that I have a metric ton of burned CDs that have piled up over the years and, in the name of wanting to well, figure out what the hell is on all these bad boys and significantly downsize my gigantic pile of random CDs. Happily, with my computer getting a new hard drive, that meant that the iTunes cupboard was somewhat bare as I had lost everything I had when the last hard drive crapped out. So, The Upload Project was born...  and it's been a weird combination of 'what the hell was I thinking' and nostalgia trip from the past ten years- and who knows, maybe even before.

So, for the sake of length (there are a lot of CDs and it's sort of time consuming) I'm going to upload ten CDs a month and finally find out what's on them all. Songs in italics are repeats that showed up on multiple CDs. Here's the first installment:
