Your list finished strong. I am embarrassed to admit that I only know a handful of these songs!

Yay for Cat Power!

Chan is awesome! I don't think this represents all her work but somehow I can't get enough of this song. Ahh, it drives me crazy. Ironically, she is from my area but I've never met her. I have friends of the family who knew her as well as her sister. Funny that. Thnks Melissa!!

Good stuff. I love Berlin and I even like that song despite the fact that it was partly responsible for their break up. "How Soon Is Now" is perhaps the sexiest song I've ever heard about not being able to get a date. I'm surprised that you didn't include any Tori. Seems almost criminal. ; )
February 05, 2010
I agree. But I'm already expected to put Tori on every list of music I create just as people are now expecting Otto; Or Up With Dead People to be on every movie list of mine. Hmm, sometimes we cenos are ironic. I'm thinking about burning this CD today. Thanks Orlok!

Most CDs hold about 80 minutes, so you could fit at least five more songs on here. If I might be so bold to suggest a few based on what you already have...
Cyndi Lauper "Time After Time"
Led Zeppelin "Whole Lotta Love"
Derek & the Dominoes "Layla"
The Cure "Pictures of You"
Annie Lennox "Love Song for a Vampire"

February 05, 2010
Definitely The Cure. The others are pretty good ideas too. I don't remember the Annie Lennox track however. Which album is that on?
February 05, 2010
It's from the soundtrack to the 1992 film "Bram Stoker's Dracula". It plays during the credits.
February 05, 2010
Hmm, don't recall it but I'll look it up. Thanks! I could've thrown some Diamanda Galas on the mix album but the atmosphere of this one is more mellow so perhaps I'll reserve her material for an edgier or darker Valentine's Day mixed CD.
February 05, 2010
Yeah, the Valentine's Day CD for really bad break-ups and revenge sex. LOL!
February 05, 2010
Some Diamanda, Nine Inch Nails, & that Kelis song "Caught Out There". LOL
February 06, 2010
"the sexiest song I've ever heard about not being able to get a date". HAHA I LOVE IT! So true, too. One of my favorites. "So you go and you stand there alone, and you leave on your own, and you go home, and you cry and you want to die". So depressed.
February 06, 2010
Exactly, and Morrissey delivers that line perfectly. I miss The Smiths and "Girlfriend in a Coma" just doesn't get enough radio play.
February 06, 2010
Yeah, it's a pretty depressing song but Morrissey could sing his grocery list to me & I would be willing to listen. I love his voice whether it be work with The Smiths or his solo offerings. Morrissey rocks!
February 06, 2010
I'm only familiar with his early solo work. Late '80s and early '90s stuff. I think he released an album just a few years ago... have you heard it?
February 06, 2010
He actualyl released two last year but I've only heard bits and pieces. I'm more familiar with his work with The Smiths & then the first few solo albums like Bona Drag which I still play religiously.
February 07, 2010
Man, if you two EVER did a collabo...I would buy the CD off iTunes in a snap! Love the list, Bri! I've been thinking of doing one but, there's way too many on my list ;p
February 07, 2010
You can always do one and then sequels. I've been guilty of that quite a bit lately. ; )
 
February 05, 2010
Great playlist, Brian!  I know and love ALL of these songs!  Happy V-Day to you, too! :)
February 05, 2010
Thanks Deb! Glad u stopped by. I should make a mixed CD of these songs just for the occasion. I'm delighted you LOVE these songs. :=)
