I suspect you haven't heard at least 80% of these. And I hope that you will now be glad that you have. Or that they will make your headmeats convulse. Either way.
kidneythieves, Luxt, Whale and Veruca Salt? You rock. :)
That first track is perverse. wow. great stuff.
It was more the Funker Vogt one that had me going "...what?"
I actually think this is one of your more pop-y mixes (what with the [heartcrushingly beautiful] Donnie Darko Mad World cover and Squarepusher's [amazing] Joy Division cover..)
Regardless, I approve. Great mix as always.*thumbs up*
Yesterday I got both Minuit albums in the mail [The 88 and The Guards Themselvels]. They're good- there's a bunch of good tracks on each that you can't find on eMusic or Amazon. Definitely recommended if you don't mind the painful USD-NZD conversion rate. Took 10 days between order and shipping from smokecds.com; maybe the other place can do better.
Cool. I ordered them from the same place a while ago; haven't arrived yet.
These are really excellent.
Great mix. I've been listening to it all day. It's my favorite. Maybe because I'm old enough (almost 58) that the originals of some of those covers have a lot of emotional content for me.
You're talking about Word Up, obviously.
Okay, I'm still using these for my weekly alarm clock. Although I only made the mistake of using no. 9 once. Waking up to that was not fun. This mix, however, was a wonderful way to ease into the day ... an absolutely gorgeous opening.
and listening to your music mixes. Thanks, excellent cooking mix the cranberries are popping open in response.
"Now, in an unusual case in which an Arizona recipient of an RIAA letter has fought back in court rather than write a check to avoid hefty legal fees, the industry is taking its argument against music sharing one step further: In legal documents in its federal case against Jeffrey Howell, a Scottsdale, Ariz., man who kept a collection of about 2,000 music recordings on his personal computer, the industry maintains that it is illegal for someone who has legally purchased a CD to transfer that music into his computer."
That Washington Post article is full of crap. That's not what RIAA is claiming at all. They're claiming that ripping his CDs and putting them in his Kazaa sharing folder is illegal.
Ah. That's quite a difference, then. Thanks for the update, and sorry about the FUD. I should have done more research first.
Thanks alot for that tape. I loved all the cover songs.. well, except for Bohemian Rhapsody, which was fun to listen to, but I don't think I want to hear it again. ;) Again.. Thanks! And Happy New Year!
Btw. I think you misspelled the artist on track #18, as it should be An Pierlé. :)
I agree that Bohemian Rhapsody isn't a great song, but the sheer audacity of it is impressive... especially when they get to the guitar solo.
