daisyThe challenge in putting together a playlist for Novalis isn’t in finding the songs (they’re everywhere) but in curating them to give a good sampling of the options available.

  • If the song is about a flower – it fits
  • If it’s about someone named for a flower – it fits
  • If it’s about the spring, or summer, or autumn – it fits
  • If it was played at Woodstock – it fits

Novalis likes folk music, psychedelic rock, new age trance, classical, show tunes, or just about anything else that someone could dance to for hours on end.

I hope you enjoy listening to this playlist – I sure had fun making it.
