Favorite Mixtape/CD...

It's a lost art with digital downloads, but if you were to take (at max 2) 15 tracks on a CD/Mixtape with you to your grave, what songs would you take with you?

You can click on the song if you are not familiar with it or if you want to take a listen for any other reason.

I'll Start:

1.Seasons of Love - "Rent" Motion Picture Soundtrack
2.Never Give All The Heart - Smash Cast (Featuring Katharine McPhee)
3.The Circle of Life - "The Lion King" Broadway Soundtrack
4. Hook - Blues Traveler
5.Tattoos on this Town - Jason Aldean
6.Home - Dierks Bentley
7.Bless the Broken Road - Rascal Flatts
8.Already Gone - Sugarland
9.Vincent - Don McLean
10.Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - Amy Winehouse (Bridget Jones' version)
11.Invisible City - Wallflowers
12.Basket Case - Green Day
13.Duel of the Fates - "Star Wars Episode I: The Phanton Menace" Sountrack
14.Angel - Sarah McLachlan
15.The Dance - Garth Brooks

I will do my other mixtape later.

Have fun...

Re: Favorite Mixtape/CD...

This is the quintessential mix tape from my teen years. Yes, I was teen in the 80's when we all thought the world would end with Reagan pushing a button so there's a certain undercurrent of despair and lack of care for a tomorrow that won't come to the music.
I can't take credit for this mix. A female friend made it and gave copies to everybody in my circle of friends. Originally created on a 90 minute tape, she "remastered" it onto CD for everyone when collecting mp3s became big in the late 90's.

I think it has a bit of a "dark" John Hughes movie vibe to it.

Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio
The Alarm - The Stand
Lords of the New Church - Open Your Eyes
Oingo Boingo - Not My Slave
Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen in Love
Love and Rockets - No New Tale to Tell
Smithereens - Blood and Roses
Planet P - Why Me
PIL - Order of Death
Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays
The Cure - Let's Go to Bed
Concrete Blonde - Still in Hollywood
Duran Duran - Planet Earth
Shriekback - Nemesis
The Vapors - Turning Japanese
The Church - Under the Milky Way

And yep, I still pop it in every few months for a listen.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...

Re: Favorite Mixtape/CD...

Since I'm taking this super-CD to my grave, it's all over the place! But it's a "mix tape" blend, partly chosen from greatest hits of past mix tapes. It's intended to loop forever, in my grave, I guess.
  1. Planet Claire - The B-52's
  2. Running Up That Hill - Kate Bush
  3. The Crossing - Grace Jones
  4. You Are Always on My Mind - Pet Shop Boys
  5. Under the Milky Way - The Church
  6. Love, Reign o'er Me - The Who
  7. Echoes - Pink Floyd
  8. In the Cloud Forest - Andy Summers & Robert Fripp
  9. Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29 - Wendy Carlos (1968)
  10. In Paradisum - Gabriel Fauré
  11. Siegfried's Death and Funeral March - Richard Wagner
  12. The Battle of Yavin - John Williams
  13. Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
  14. Monkey Man - The Rolling Stones
  15. Downtown Train - Tom Waits
The Fauré Requiem piece is passable, although I prefer it with pipe organ only. I'd much prefer another recording of the Wagner. "Echoes" is on Meddle.

P.S. That was a little bit of work, but I enjoyed picking those out.
