This month in the music club there was a pre-determined theme for every track, which made it a whole lot of fun picking songs. I can’t wait to get everyone else’s mix and see what they picked!
|A groovy tune||Luv Wax||Stymie & the Pimp Jones Luv Orchestra||There were a thousand possible songs for this, just picked this random obscure funky tune.|
|The craziest song you’ve ever heard||Squeeze Me Macaroni||Mr. Bungle||I could easily have picked any song from this album, which blew every conception I had about what people were allowed to record. I picked it up in 1992 at a college record store, knowing only that Mike Patton from Faith No More was the singer. This song is about sex with food and is a pretty good example from the album, although probably not the weirdest thing on it.|
|Your favorite song from 1986||Don’t Lose My Number||Phil Collins||In 1986, I was just reaching an age where I actively listened to and bought my first tapes. The first two tapes I ever bought were Phil Collin’s “No Jacket Required” and Genesis’ “Invisible Touch”. So here ya go.|
|Song you have to headbang to||I Wanna Rock||Twisted Sister||Say what you want but this is a classic.|
|Song to be played at your funeral||I Just Want to Celebrate||Rare Earth||Firstly, a great song. Secondly, it’s all about celebrating life which is what I’d rather have people who are still alive focusing on when I kick the bucket.|
|Song about the weather||Fool in the Rain||Led Zeppelin||A classic track containing a couple of the finest drum fills ever recorded.|
|Song about a body part||Dick in a Box||Justin Timberlake||You probably saw or heard this on Saturday Night Live. Awesome funny.|
|Song about prison or jail||Jailbreak||Thin Lizzy||Fun song.|
|Song about money||I Paid My Money||Ben Folds||This is from Ben’s little known Fear of Pop album which was a side project he did during Ben Folds Five. Lots of cool zany stuff on it.|
|Song about family||Family Reserve||Lyle Lovett||A Lyle tune about everyone in the family dying and finally getting back together again.|
|Song about a famous person||Hasselhoff||Johnny Socko||The finest ode to the ‘hoff available.|
|Song about stress||Pressure Drop||Specials||Pressure’s gonna drop on you…|
Hope you liked the mix. Try it yourself!
