pepsi songs

One summer Pepsi was offering free mp3 downloads at the rate of one song per five caps.  So I hoarded caps from all my friends and loved ones and cashed them in periodically.  I swore only to select songs I loved, but didn’t necessarily want to spend a buck on.

I am not going to link to each individual post containing about five songs.  Instead, here is the full and final list of what I ended up with.
