Here we go, kiddies.
La Fab made a comment last time that reminded me that playing mixtape is a lot like planning a radio show, without having to read the weather. That has nothing to do with anything, but I thought I'd pass that along.
My new idea is this: a playlist/mixtape/radio show in which all the songs are about music. It might be about making music, listening to music, or musicians, but it has to be pretty blatantly about the M word. Just the usual restrictions: nothing too obscure, and I'll probbably end up making a playlist out of this, so give LOTS of suggestions so if I cut one or two, it won't hurt your feelings.
I will, of course, go first.
Beck: Where It's At
Madonna: Music (um, duh?)
Chuck Berry: Rock and Roll Music
Joan Jett: I Love Rock and Roll
AC/DC: It's a Long Way To the Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll)
Johnny Burnette Trio: Rock-a-Billy Boogie
