Tribute to Ari Up: Playlist for Oct. 22, 2010

I'm an island girl, but no man is an island. - Ari Up

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main... any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. - John Donne, Meditation XVII
