teh s3quence 009: lilah’s mix

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
18 ayumi hamasaki, moments
19 bt, blue skies (feat. tori amos)
20 ayumi hamasaki, i’m your little butterfly
21 ben folds, gracie

(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.)

i’ve been listening to mike skinner’s (of the streets) “skinmixes.”  they’ve reminded me what i loved about spinning records; creating moods and the flow of one song to the next, exposing music i love, and throwing some oddball stuff in for good measure.  skinner seems to have a similar approach, which is why i dig his mixes so much.  

there’s a trend that’s been going on for a few years with dj’s and mc’s (among, i’m sure, countless others) posting mixtapes on the web.  it’s a thing.  i decided there’s not much stopping me (other than time) from putting my own mixes out there, especially since i have this awesome virtual dj software that is just collecting dust.  

so here’s my first mix.  it’s short, and i spent a lot of the time playing with buttons. but this is sort of a trial run anyway.  my only real goal was to see if i actually could make Dali’s Car mix with the “Holding Out for a Hero” by Frou Frou.
