) is a series of themed music compilations spanning the 50+ year history of popular music. Current compilations include the best songs ever about Rock and Roll, Time, Man, Want, Money, Fire, Drugs, Dreams, Driving, Love, Paradise and Animals. The creative themes arrange classic favorites across the decades along a common thread to offer a fresh, rewarding listening experience. Great care is taken to the arrangement of the songs, yielding compilations that make a collective statement worthy of the songs themselves.
