Easy Street Playlist

Here's a classy little playlist that would be perfect for your next Iron Chef competition. It's a nice heaping dish of Americana, ranging from big band to indie rock, folk music, roots music, surfer rock, and old showgirl standards. How do they all fit on one plate? It's all about the presentation.

This mix is just right for driving down the highway towards a canoe trip with your dad, or for kicking back in a rocking chair with some lemonade.
