JUNE09 - A to Z Mix

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *
In an attempt to start sharing music on a more regular basis, I thought I'd start uploading monthly music mixes with an "A to Z" theme [one song for each letter of the alphabet]. There's no rhyme, reason, or theme to the mixture of music I upload - They're just songs that I enjoy, and that I'd love for my friends to hear. Here's one for June:

Academia {Sia}
you're a difficult equation
with a knack for heart evasion

Beauty Contest {No Doubt}
how did my vanity get such a mess?

The Call {Regina Spektor}
all you can do is try to know who your friends are
as you head off to the war

Désert {Emilie Simon}
je voudrais te dessiner dans un desert
le desert de mon coeur

Edit {Regina Spektor}
you can write
but you can't edit

Fairytale {Sara Bareilles}
have to find another tower somewhere
and keep away from the window

Girls {Death In Vegas}
instrumental + wordless vocals

Habanera {Kate Nash}
you could break my heart
that was apparent from the start

I Don't Feel So Well {Vienna Teng}
but all the while, I'm realizing:
I can't love you there

Just You and Me {Zee Avi}
where we can finally
be where we'd like to be
darlin, just you and me

Kiss From A Rose {Seal}
you remain
my power, my pleasure, my pain

L'incendie {Vanessa Paradis}
l'un a ses idées et l'autre ses ailes

Man {the bird and the bee}
oh please let me keep my head
it wouldn't do you any good just hanging by a thread

Neon ? {Temposhark}
this is awry, this is a cover up, this is denial,
another major fuck up (fuck up)

Oh, It Is Love {hellogoodbye}
oh, it is love
from the first time I pressed my hand into yours,
thinkin' oh, is it love?

Pachad {Yael Naim}
omer ahshav tesshi levad
rotze shetifrehi la-ad
hegia zman shetegali mi at

Q - N/A

The Rainbow Connection {Jim Henson}
someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
the lovers, the dreamers, and me

Say Hey (I Love You) {Michael Franti & Spearhead}
I just want to write a song about a boy and girl

Technicolor Eyes {Backseat Goodbye}
I love living life with you by my side
you're a smart kid with a beautiful smile

Up to the roof {Blue Man Group feat. Tracy Bonham}
and when I get up that high I don't know what I'll find
but I'd rather look at the sky
than wonder why I let you take my time

Velvet Revolution {Tori Amos}
feeling radical in cotton, purified in my satin
but the bomb of the season is a Velvet Revolution

We Are Lights {Carols for a Cure}
we are glowing, growing miracles
we are lights
shining on and on

X - N/A

You Are a Runner and I Am My Father's Son {Wolf Parade}
you are a runner with a stolen voice
you are a runner
and I am my father's son

Z - N/A

A .zip file of the entire mix is here. This is my first time making and uploading a .zip, so please let me know if you have any difficulties.

No, no otakon for me this year :(

I want to see pics of you two in your avatar garbs though!!!!

Also, Backseat Goodbye is my favorite new find in this batch. <3 acoustic jams. Also, the Emilie Simon tune reminded me of her awesome music vid for "Flowers".

Aw. Will definitely have to get pictures some other time, then!

Backseat Goodbye is a bizarre one-person band. The kid records himself playing all the different instruments, then warbles away into the mic. His singing is pretty awful, but his lyrics make me smile like an idiot. I really like that song of Emilie's, but I haven't seen the music video. I'll have to look it up on YT next time I have time to kill!

I love it when my friends do this! I already have a lot of these (thank god I'm not the only one who loves that Franti & Spearhead song), but I'm taking the ones I need! Thank you! :D

Hahah, we like a LOT of the same music, so I had a feeling you would already have most of this. ^__^ I LOVE that song. I played it for my kids for a listening lesson I did with them, and they all thought I was super cool, LOL.
