Corn, Cheese, and Other Misdemeanors

I was in Tom's car the other night and he had a CD called "Corn and Cheese" playing. It was a fun mix, with the added bonus where I had one of those moments where I linked up a song that I knew to hear with a title and artist that I knew, but didn't know what song they went with--in this case, Nilsson's "Without You." Thusly inspired, I put together for Tom a cheese collection of my own, and while I was at it, I also put together something called "Best of Joe's Computer" as a sampler of music that I have that I non-ironically enjoy. Here are the playlists for the curious:
