lawrencesymBuilding a playlist for Lawrence is an exercise in cutting. Between jodies, sword dances, forging songs, duels, and just about every song in Christendom, there is no shortage of music to pick from.

I hope you enjoy the collection, but if not it should at least help you sharpen your blades!
