Musical Meal in Two Courses

Two mixes I've made for folks in the last month or so.

03. Gothic Archies - Freakshow (2:56)
04. They Might Be Giants - Boss of Me (2:58)
05. David Byrne - For You (3:19)
06. Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians - Driving Aloud (Radio Storm) [Alternate Vocals] (4:00)
07. Jesca Hoop - Money (5:05)
08. Siouxsie & the Banshees - Peek-a-boo (3:08)
09. They Might Be Giants - Am I Awake (3:04)
10. Gabriela Robin - Cats on Mars (2:46)
11. Scraping Foetus off the Wheel - Lust for Death (3:37)

19. The Pillows - Little Busters (3:44)
20. They Might Be Giants - With the Dark (3:17)


Lust for Death and Lust for Life not only look good next to each other on the playlist, but they also sound pretty spiffy right after each other.


01. David Byrne - Glass, Concrete, & Stone (4:13)
02. Paul Simon - Once Upon a Time There Was an Ocean (3:55)
03. Harry Nilsson - Think About Your Troubles (2:48)
04. Michael Penn - Me Around [live] (2:32)
05. Tom Waits - On The Other Side Of The World (5:19)
06. Totom - The Fall Of Troy (3:48)
07. Regina Spektor - Hotel Song (3:29)
08. The Breeders - Bang On (2:03)
09. Jesca Hoop - Money (5:05)
10. Kate Bush - Rocket Man (5:02)
11. They Might Be Giants - Memo to Human Resources (2:02)
12. Michael Leviton - Summer's the Worst (3:31)
13. The Magnetic Fields - Old Orchard Beach (2:54)
14. Jane Siberry - Everything Reminds Me of My Dog (4:19)
15. Regina Spektor - Rejazz (3:37)
16. Robyn Hitchcock - Idonia (4:26)
17. Laurie Anderson - Poison (3:47)
18. Ed's Redeeming Qualities - Random (3:01)
19. John Linnell - New Hampshire (2:49)
20. Monopuff - Mr. Hughes Says (2:32)
21. Zooey Deschanel - Fabric Of My Life (2:42)
22. Aimee Mann - Nobody Does It Better (4:25)


Amusingly, I went through and picked out songs for the second one, checked how long the mix was so far, and gave myself a little pat on the back for it being *just* the right length. Then I remembered that CD-RWs are 80 minutes, and I'd composed it for a 90 minute tape (even though it was going on CD), so I had to whittle it down by ten minutes worth of music.
