weekly mix #42

I’m trying out something new this week. I thought my way of posting my weekly mixes has been lacking since it didn’t really give you a way of listening to the songs for yourself. I don’t want to post MP3s for download, so with the help of Grooveshark I’ve made a playlist of this week’s mix. I hope you like what you hear.

  1. Kate Bush – Sunset
    I had a window seat flying home across the ocean on Sunday. It was a seven hour flight where we took off at 5pm and landed at 7pm. We seemed to chase the sunset across the sky.
  2. Liz Phair – Stratford On Guy
    Flying always makes me think of this song, but this time it was truer than ever. It took an hour, maybe a day.
  3. U2 – October
    And when we landed, it was chilly. There was a bit of a change in temperature from Naples to Milan, but nothing like the cold wind that greeted us in Montreal. I knew that would be the case though. Even though days before I was in sunny Pompeii in nothing more than a T-shirt, it was suddenly October.
  4. M. Ward – Post War
    Time for a slow dance.
  5. Surfer Blood – Twin Peaks
  6. The Hold Steady – Cattle and the Creeping Things
    I love how this song sounds like two songs. The lyrics don’t seem to match the melody at all.
  7. The Mountain Goats – Heretic Pride
    I feel so proud to be alive, and I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives.
  8. The Vaselines – Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam
  9. The Gaslight Anthem – Boomboxes and Dictionaries
    The radio will still play loud, songs that we heard as our guards came down.
    Like in the summertime when we first met, I’ll never forget, don’t you forget.
    These nights are still ours.
  10. Frank Turner – Jet Lag
    No comment, only that this song is epic.
