As it is wont to do, my iPod “broke” the second I tried to use it while on vacation. The whole thing seemed corrupted, but managed to magically fix itself after I let the whole battery run out and then recharge with the new AC adapter I bought. This resurrection did not occur until the next to last day of vacation (seriously). So these mixes are a bit spotty as I didn’t have access to the music during those weeks. Also, can I just say how great it is to listen to music again? I had to take a little three minute moment in the hotel room when my iPod started up again just to recharge myself aurally, as it were.
This is the mix for 10/07/2010.
- Tori Amos – Upside Down
I’m okay when everything is not okay.
- Best Coast – When I’m With You
Can’t remember when this came up, possibly because I was looking for some Best Coast to add to this mix this week. I skipped their NYC show to hang out at my favorite bar and drink Stoli & Soda and photograph hexagons. I had this song in my head for the rest of the week, but I’m not sorry.
- Dramarama – Whenever I’m With Her
The answer to the last song.
- Depeche Mode – Blasphemous Rumours
Don’t know where this came from, don’t know where it’s going, aside from stright into the next song.
- Firewater – Bourbon & Division
“Found” this disc again back at my mom’s house. This song came coming into my head when I got to Italy as wouldn’t leave me for a while.
- The Tallest Man On Earth – Pistol Dreams
Throw me in the fire now, come on. Still reeling from the show the week before, a line in this song really hit me when I heard him sing it live. I will boil the curtains to extract the drugs of springtime.
- David Bowie – Art Decade
We took a tour of some fancy building in Florence and saw some art. It was kind of funny how the other people on the tour were really, really into the art.
- Daniel Lavoie & Bruno Pelletier – Florence
It fit the bill.
- Roman Candle – I Wish I Was in New York
Yeah. Europe is Europe.
- Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – Tracks of My Tears
I spent an afternoon in a hotel room watching the Spectacle episode with Smokey Robinson. This song came up a lot.
