Recent Mix CDs

After the success of Ascent Into Madness for the CD Exchange at Marscon/Minicon and beyond, I've been in a DJ mood. I've had requests to post the playlists of subsequent mixes, so here they are.

At sevenmpls's party at Grumpy's, the bar's entertainment was a beyond-karaoke interactive game called Rock Band (I think) where a bunch of people get onstage and "play" instruments as their part zips by on five different screens. It looked fun, but I went through the selections and didn't recognize the songs. I assumed they were recent pop hits.

At Minicon, alierajean and I were discussing this. She knew the songs, of course. I asked her to make me a mix CD of her favorite pop tunes. The next day, she had the CD. She didn't want an Ascent Into Madness CD, so I asked what she wanted. "Girly Music!" she replied proudly. I wasn't entirely sure what that meant, so I guessed, and quickly threw together a bunch of songs by, for and about women (mostly). The next day I presented:

Aliera Girly Music
1. Women Are The Rhythm Of The World -- Kacey Jones 5:46
2. Bombay Girl (edit) -- Alisha 4:48
3. Ha Ha Thisaway -- Rooftop Singers 1:36
4. Powerpuff girl -- Russo, Lojo 1:53
5. A Woman's Mantra -- Kacy Jones, Rich Fagan 3:20
6. Serving Girl's Holiday -- Tim Hart & Maddy Prior 3:39
7. B'wanina (Pretty Girl) -- Tokens, The 2:18
8. Lucky Girl -- Tetes Noires -- 2:45
9. A Girl On Theology -- Electric Amish, The 3:10
10. Ekneli Jom -- Shlomit 3:10
11. Nun Fight -- Paul and Storm 2:35
12. What If You Girlfriend Was Gone -- Carla Ulbrich 2:05
13. You Make Me Puke -- Frances, Kay 1:23
14. All Around My Hat -- Steeleye Span 4:08
15. The Widow Song -- Robert Calvert 2:42
16. Masquerading as Human -- Duras Sisters, The 2:23
17. Technonerdboy -- Urban Tapestry 2:49
18. I Really Did Go To School Naked -- Dahlby, Carrie 2:42
19. D'yer Mak'er -- Sheryl Crow 4:21
20. Meaning Of Life -- Those Darn Accordions 2:47
21. Hannibal Lecter -- Beth Kinderman 4:13
22. Sex And Chocolate -- Urban Tapestry 2:45
23. South American Way -- Andrews Sisters, The 2:42
24. Ring Of Bone -- Tom Russell & Patricia Hardin 3:18
25. Lady In Black -- Uriah Heap 4:47

She and Gillian seem to be enjoying the songs, most of which are probably new to them. I haven't wended my way through alierajean's CD yet, partially because I don't have a playlist.

A few days later, a friend who is very into music had never heard of Steeleye Span. Well! I can help with that.

Steeleye Span Primer
1. False Knight On The Road -- Prior/Hart 2:59
2. John Barleycorn -- Steeleye Span 4:48
3. Bach Goes to Limerick -- Steeleye Span 3:42
4. The Grey Funnel Line -- Maddy Prior & June Tabor 3:04
5. Boys of Bedlam -- Steeleye Span 4:19
6. Skewball -- Steeleye Span 3:31
7. Twa Corbies Steeleye Span 2:07
8. Elf Call -- Steeleye Span 3:51
9. The Weaver And The Factory Maid -- Steeleye Span 5:24
10. All Around My Hat -- Steeleye Span 4:08
11. The Old Maid in the Garrett b. Tam Lin (Reel) -- Steeleye Span 5:55
12. Two Magicians -- Steeleye Span 4:27
13. Black Jack Davy -- Steeleye Span 4:14
14. Rosebud In June -- Steeleye Span 3:39
15. Jigs Paddy Clancey's Jig Willie Clancy's Fancy -- Steeleye Span 3:08
16. Demon Lover -- Steeleye Span 5:53
17. Seventeen Come Sunday -- Steeleye Span 5:05
18. Saucy Sailor -- Steeleye Span 5:47

I don't have all my mix tapes in the database, do I can only comment on the CDs, of which this was burn #1015.

I have begun three mix CDs with False Knight on the Road, and ended three CDs with Saucy Sailor; two that begin and end with the pair including the Primer.
