Mixtape: June MMX
I have to warn you...my taste in mixtapes has always been a little odd. As in, really odd.
I'm not one of those cool music geeks who knows his stuff like the back of his hand, nor one of those great curators of legit music that actually kind of goes together, unlike mine, which can be likened to oxidized guacamole that is that lovely brown color on top. Gross looking in a superficial sense (Jim Hensen? And wait...is that part of an opera in Mandarin? And then there's Royksopp? You've gotta be kidding me!) but if stick with them...they make some sort of sense. Or something. Or they only make sense to me.
Regardless, they're made with lots of love.
1--Monkey Bee, from the Mandarin opera Journey to the West, by Chen Shi-Zheng, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett
2--Light of, by Flogging Molly (coincidentally the only concert where I've been trampled by a mixture of heavily tattooed drunk Irishmen and Gothpunk teenagers. Pain never smelled quite so like Guinness and dirt)
3--Happy Up Here, by Royksopp
4--Say Yes, by Langhorne Slim
5--Movin' Right Along, featuring Fozzie Bear and Kermit the Frog
6--Single Ladies, performed by Pomplamoose (originally by Beyoncé)
7--Burn Again, by Kubb (also the name of a wicked awesome lawn game that you play in Gotland)
8--False Alarm, by the Wooden Birds
9--You Can't Always Get What You Want, by the Rolling Stones
10--Barbara Ann, by the Beach Boys
11--Karma Slave, by Splashdown (name that movie! come on! I know someone is enough of a dork to have seen it!)
12--Fiber Optic Paramour, by the Honeydogs
13--Good Times Gonna Come, by Aqualung
14--Mardy Bum, by Arctic Monkeys
