It’s a mystery how I came up with this theme. I believe I woke up from a nap thinking, this might be fun. I made it a mystery theme because once again, the thing that ties these 11 together is VERY marginal, and sort of silly to spend time explaining. But maybe you’ll figure it out (if you care to).

OK, exploring playlist ideas no one else does...All of the titles here start with "L" and end with "Y."
