Fanmix: "This Town and I" (Jellicoe Road)

You could call this my ~serenade to Melina Marchetta's novel, On the Jellicoe Road. It started out as a character-by-character playlist, but then I thought, hey: why not let their whole entwined story play out in all the songs?

Cue me wasting a whole afternoon on a giant five-parter fanmix.

(...I think I may like the cover best of all.)
