a "get out and get over it" mix [23 May 2006|03:11am]

So my very very amazing and best friend made me this CD. It's titled: "Your mom and ex-girlfriend suck so these songs hate on them and give you hope because you have the bestest friend in the world: me, to make you such an awesome mix!". I'd been having troubles with both, obviously, and this cheered me up immensely.
The song list is also very very amazing, and is as follows:
1. Brand New//I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
2. Taking Back Sunday//MakeDamnSure
3. Sleater-Kinney//Jumpers
4. The Smiths//There is a Light That Never Goes Out
5. Taking Back Sunday//You're So Last Summer (It should be noted that neither of us are really fans of TBS, but their emo-ness is vastly appreciated in times such as this :-P)
6. Death Cab for Cutie//For What Reason
7. Blonde Redhead//A Cure
8. Stereophonics//Maybe Tomorrow
9. Placebo//Because I Want You
10. Interpol//Jenny Was a Friend of Mine
11. Say Anything//Alive With the Glory of Love
12. Bright Eyes//At the Bottom of Everything
13. Johnny Cash feat. June Carter Cash//It Ain't Me, Babe
14. Broken Social Scene//Swimmers
15. The Shins//Pink Bullets
16. The Smashing Pumpkins//Perfect

To the tune of... [19 Jun 2005|10:54pm]

My gosh it's been forever since I've posted here! Anyway - I have a situation. My friend and I are in an awkward situation. We're not mad at eachother or anything but she's really been upsetting me lately with some stuff she's done. Like dating a guy who she doesn't need to be with. He's using her for sex and other things and I try to tell her that she needs to end it with him but she just won't listen to me.
I need songs along the line of "hey he's not right/good for you" "you're my best friend and I love you to death but you're killing me" "i'm hating this" "i'll always be there for you" and any songs that relate. Any genre will do. Please help me with this. This is what I have so far -
Seventy times 7 by Brand New
My Best Friend by Weezer
Hannah Hold On by The Get Up Kids
It's Been Awhile by Staind
Until the Day I Die by Story of the Year
What we hate, we make by The Rocket Summer
You Fault by Plain White T's
Good Riddance by Green Day
How's it going to be by Third Eye Blind
Soco Amaretto Line - Brand New
Tribute - Tenacious D
Karate - Tenacious D
Bleed For You - Hidden in Plain View
Break Myself - Something Corporate
From California - The New Amsterdams
Science Fiction - Rufio

I have the two Tenacious D songs on there because we laugh our butts off when we listen to them so I figured I'd put some humor in it. Anyway - all help is appreciated and thank you SOOO much in advance!

I'm A Nutritional Overachiever [06 Dec 2003|05:01pm]

[ mood | amused ]

dark gray matter of fact

a list of most of the mix CDs I've made in the last 4 or 5 months.... any are available if anyone wants...and of course songs can be replaced (pretty understandable) with songs off other CDs or anything else I might have.... it doesn't seem like people often get taken up on the offer to trade or take a CD.... but its worth a try, I guess

a complete examination of the factsCollapse )

Mixes on the Run [30 Oct 2003|05:21am]

[ mood | tired ]

Yep, I've wasted more time in my life and cooked up two more mix CD-R's. Not that anyone cares. I can't make just one when two have beautiful symmetry. Actually, I'm not 100% sold on these mixes; a few more listens are needed.

-Feel Good for Now-

Johnny Pate "Auto Chase" (from -Brother on the Run- soundtrack)
the White Stripes "Why Can't You Be Nicer to Me?"
the Neats "6"
the Danielson Family "A No No"
the Fairfield Four "I'll Be So Happy"
People Like Us "Swinglargo"
Dizzy Gillespe "Oh Lady Be Good"
Nikka Costa "Like a Feather"
the Social Climbers "Hello Texas"
the Rip Tides "Machine Gun"
Devo "Blockhead"
Neutral Milk Hotel "Everything Is"
Ornette Coleman "Tears Inside"
Damon and Naomi with Ghost "The New World"
the Soul Children "The Sweeter He Is (Parts 1 and 2)
Todd Rundgren "The Verb 'To Love'"
the Radio Sweethearts "We're Falling Out of Love Again"
Jimmie Lee "Look What Love Can Do"
Jennifer Trynin "Better Than Nothing"
the Friendly Hopefuls "Salute the Punks of 1976"

That last track is a "Stars on 45" type medley of UK punk hits (no lie!). Yeah, it's real, recorded in the 80's in England. The first track is great 70's movie funk. The Jimmie Lee track is a nice Everly Brothers style rockabilly harmony record from the late 50's sometime. The Dizzy Gillespe cut is an actual vocal from the jazz great (courtesy of the -American Splendor- soundtrack). "Everything Is" is Neutral Hotel's first (non-LP) single. The Devo is an early recording - one of their best.


Frank Sinatra "Someone to Watch Over Me"
Jimmy Castor "Poor Loser"
Scritti Politti "The Sweetest Girl"
Bjork "Human Behavior"
Gerty Farish "Kiki Riki"
Suicide "Dream Baby Dream"
the Dishes "Shotgun"
the Montanas "That's When Happiness Begins"
the Salvation Army "She Turns to Flowers"
Holly Golightly "I Can't Be Trusted"
Blind Willie McTell "Talking to Your Mama"
Elliot Smith "Division Day"
the Cryers "Shake It Up (Isn't It Time)"
the Jean Paul Sarte Experience "Block"
the Bar Kays "Holy Ghost"
Ennio Morricone "Ad Ogni Costo (At Any Cost)"
Dave Dudley "Six Days on the Road"
Richard Hell and the Voidoids "I'm Your Man"
the Lapse "Secondhand Smoke"
Steve Hillage "It's All Too Much"
Able Tasmans "Sour Queen"
DM3 "TV Sound"

Too many late 70's New York punk classics on this one. Too much 70's, period. Also, too many the's. Hillage is covering the great not-so-well-known psychedelic Beatles classic from the -Yellow Submarine- soundtrack. "TV Sound" is one of the great power pop hits most people have't heard from one of the great power pop bands most people haven't heard of (in the US, anyway. The DM3 are Austrailian). The Elliot Smith cut is a semi-rare single he recorded for an indie label after signing to a major. Salvation Army was the original name of the 3 O'Clock (guess who forced them to change it?)
