When making music mixes, try to not put two songs next to each other by performers of widely different talents. Once in some random music club purchase I got Jewel's first CD. I don't particularly like it as it is pretty apparent she doesn't have a lot of talent in songwriting, singing or guitar playing.

Anyway, on one of my minidisk folk music compilations Jewel's "Who Will Save My Soul?" is right before Beth Orton's "Pass In Time". The difference between them in terms of artistry and effectiveness is like the difference between LeRoy Nieman and Matisse...

I'm erasing the Jewel song right now. It's embarrassing.
