the west wing - sam seaborn - little red wagon's got a new jet engine

Squeaking in just under the wire here, because I wanted to take advantage of the free-for-all challenge and make a mix for a fandom I hadn't thought about for awhile. And then one day I was listening to Luke Doucet and I was struck by how very Sam Seaborn it sounded, and then I found some other songs to go with it.

I had hoped this would work for season four Sam, building up to Red Haven's on Fire and immediately after. Though we never got to see it, I gotta believe Sam hit a wall after he lost big in California. As I listened to the mix tonight, though, it occurred to me that a lot of the songs speak to who Sam is at other times throughout the series. So. Interpret as desired.
