Mixtape 2.0

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

Okay.... GO!


  1. Just a few for now...

    Sweet Song - Al Green
    Three MCs and One DJ - Beastie Boys
    Nightclubbing - Iggy Pop
    Make it Funky (Pt.1) - James Brown
    Real Live Bleeding Fingers and Broken Guitar Strings - Lucinda Williams
    Rock Your Socks - Tenacious D

  2. My mind has blanked on who sings some of these of these but,

    Video killed the radio star-The Buggles
    Radio Song-REM
    Mexican Radio-Wall Of Voodoo
    Two Turn Tables and a microphone-Beck

  3. Good ones! Keep 'em coming!

  4. Now that I think of it, you should just play "Rock Your Socks" over and over. It really is the best one.

  5. When the Music's over - The Doors
    Rock and Roll Music - The Beatles
    Lose Control - Missy Elliott
