Art Hop 3.2k9 mix CD


Last Thursday, I needed help and you all were there. When I asked for suggestions on what songs should be on my mix CD for March's Art Hop at the gallery, yall responded [via twitter/facebook/SMS].

Sometimes I feel out of place at the gallery or pressure to be artsy. I didn't know what genre of music artists listen to or what type of music -- alt country, indie 80s dance pop, the local college radio station -- to play at the gallery. So nervous.

The suggestions were great.

But I didn't use any of them. I know, JERK, right?

Two things, 1) I'm not good a stealing music via the Internet, and 2) I don't have the Internet at my house.

I had to rely on the old lappy and the music I listened to during my senior year in college (2006). I worked hard, thought hard, listened to the first couple seconds of a lot of songs and made a playlist.

IT WAS A HIT! People were dancing, and they played my CD twice!!!

If you're interested, here is the playlist:
The Word - Joyful Sounds
A Tribe Called Quest - Can I kick It?
Bloc Party - Hunting for Wtiches
Tom Jobim & Elis Regina - Aguas De Março
The Beatles - The Night Before
Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancin'
Supergrass - Pumping On Your Stereo
Smashing Pumpkins - Today
The Strokes - 12:51
The Postal Service - Brand New Colony
Phoenix - Too Young
Paul Oakenfold - Starry Eyed Surprise
The Mountain Goats - Dance Music
Of Montreal - The Party's Crashing Us
Weezer - Buddy Holly
Neutral Milk Hotel - Holland, 1945
Slighty Stoopid - Waiting
Lifesavers - Me
David Bowie - Starman
Bright Eyes - June on the West Coast
Her Space Holiday - The Young Machines

We have another Art Hop on April 3, and I'll be asking for suggestions for another mix then. Maybe this time I'll be able to buy/steal/burn/download/stream/podcast/XM satellite radio some of the songs.
