My 'Ant' was one of the first people that I remember to really introduce me to different types of music. I think I really discovered Phil Collins and Enya (what a mix 'eh?) from her. One of my HER favorite songs from high school was "Pretty Ballerina" by Left Banke and from the 60s Sunshine Superman by Donovan. She thinks Richard and Mimi Farina's Falcon was a call back to our Kentucky roots ;)
