I used Sunday night to take a break from handicapping and put the finishing touches on my 2012 Breeders' Cup World Championships play list, which I present to you now.

Although websites such as Mog make the space limitations of CDs and blank tapes non existent, I still try to adhere to a 75-minute play list.

There is no central theme to the songs other than they are tunes I enjoy. I do try to mix a few current hits (e.g. "Blow Me [One Last Kiss]" & "She's So Mean") as a way of marking the year, but mostly it's just stuff I'm into that when I play it back in 2020 will hopefully remind me of the time I hit the Breeders' Cup Pick 6.
