teh_s3quence-009

a new tradition i’m starting this year is to make mix cds for each of the kids every year.  i did one for G a couple months ago, and decided when i finally made lilah’s that i would post it here on teh s3quence.  so, here it is:

01 morphine, the night
02 poe, hello
03 bjork, big-time sensuality
04 imogen heap, clear the area
05 elastica, connection
06 eisley, combinations
07 fleetwood mac, go your own way
08 the killers, everything will be alright
09 pop tarts, girlie pop
10 no doubt, just a girl
11 they might be giants, clap your hands
12 the 5, 6, 7, 8s, woo hoo
13 blondie, hanging on the telephone
14 the b-52s, love shack
15 garbage, only happy when it rains
16 no doubt/bounty killer, girls got the bass in the back
17 alice deejay, the lonely one

(side notes: track 01 is a special song because it’s about a “little girl” named lilah, and it played in my head when we were coming up with names.  track 21 is a song ben folds wrote for/about his daughter.  “still fighting it” on rockin’ the suburbs was written about/for his son.)

teh TOTALLY 80s s3quence

music was a cornerstone of my childhood. i grew up with mtv and what i consider to be the height of radio — back when dj’s played good music that wasn’t dictated by record labels. some people think that 80s music sounds kitchy, dated, or lo-fi, but i say it’s all of these things that make 80s music great. music was going through a revolution at the time. the 80s saw the rise of punk, goth, industrial, dance and idm — though not all of them were called those things at the time. and 80s music was and will always be the music of my childhood and fills me both with nostalgia and an uncontrollable urge to dance. so, i had to make this 80s mix. it wasn’t a choice, it was a need.
