My Newest Mix CD

1. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen (I’m burnin’ through the sky, yeah!)
2. Dancing Queen – Abba (With a bit of rock music, everything is fine)
3. New Frontier – Donald Fagan (We’ve got to have some music on the new frontier)
4. My Old School – Steely Dan (I hear the whistle, but I can’t go)
5. Here It Goes Again – OK GO (It starts out easy, something simple, something sleazy)
6. All You Ever Think About is Sex – Sparks (Alright with me)
7. One Horse Town – The Thrills (Oh I never should have settled down)
8. Falling in the Ocean – Blue October (I’m sinking to the bottom of my everything that freaks me out)
9. Wonderboy – Tenacious D (What about the power to move you?)
10. Ms. Jackson – Outkast (You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can’t predict the weather)
11. Save Tonight – Eagle Eye Cherry (and fight the break of dawn)
12. You Have Killed Me – Morrissey (I entered nothing and nothing entered me)
13. A Plea from a Cat Named Virtute – Weakerthans (About those bitter songs you sing)
14. The Way – Fastball (The children woke up and they couldn’t find them)
15. We’ve Been Had – The Walkmen (Sometimes I’m just happy I’m older)
16. If I Had a Million Dollars – Barenaked Ladies (I’d buy your love)
17. Walkie Talkie Man – Steriogram (And you wave your torch with your black short shorts)
18. Your Racist Friend – They Might be Giants (Can’t shake the devils hand and say you’re only kidding)
19. I am a Man of Constant Sorrow – Soggy Bottom Boys (For in this world I’m bound to ramble)

Nothing too terribly cutting edge on there. This one is mainly made up of reliable favorites of mine.

Everytime I make a Mix CD now I think of the book Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield.

As the last list--interesting. I am somewhat familiar with most of the groups. The last compilation I made was a two CD Sabbath comp for the Alien, using only the less heard selections.

"If I had a million dollars (if I had a million dollars)...I would buy you a green dress, (but not a real green dress, that's cruel)." LOVE that song! There are a lot of songs on your list that I love. I bought Fastball's CD, which has some other great songs on it.

Evil-E: I have to say that you and your Alien bro are a couple of the most thoughtful siblings I've ever (sort of) met!

Tara: I am a big BNL fan..gotta love a band with a sense of humor. That is why I like Tenacious D and They Might Be Giants too.
I think I might have had the whole Fastball CD at one time too, but I haven't seen it lately...
