Mix CD: Twist

October 25, 2010

Here is a mix I did a while ago that I’ve been listening to a lot lately. It was for a CD mix swap on swapbot where we were given a list of criteria and had to choose songs to fit each of them. I didn’t keep the songs in the order of the requirements list rather played around with it a bit so they flow fairly well.

  1. The Twist – Chubby Checker (Song from the 60’s)
  2. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds – Elton John (Cover of a Beatles tune)
  3. How We Operate – Gomez (Song by a British rock band)
  4. Such Great Heights – The Postal Service (Song that inspires you)
  5. Marching Bands of Manhattan – Death Cab for Cutie (Song with a city in the title)
  6. Jackie’s Strength – Tori Amos (Song with a name in the title)
  7. The Flowers of Guatemala – R.E.M. (Song from the 80’s)
  8. Sweet Jane – Cowboy Junkies (Song that makes you think you would sell your soul for that talent)
  9. Flowers in December – Mazzy Star (Song with your birth month in the title)
  10. Let It Rain – Eric Clapton (Song with weather in the title)
  11. The Freshmen – The Verve Pipe (Song by a local band)
  12. The Difference – Matchbox 20 (Song by an artist with a number in their name)
  13. Song Beneath the Song – Maria Taylor (Song about a song)
  14. Love Shines (A Song for My Daughters About God) – Live (Song with a religious figure in the title)
  15. Goodbye Song – Abandoned Pools (Song that says goodbye)
  16. Your Star – The All-American Rejects (Song with the word “star” in the title)
  17. Magnolia – The Hush Sound (Song with a flower in the title)
  18. After the Gold Rush – Natalie Merchant (A live song)

I named this one “Twist” because the songs seem to twist around, and it was the name of my 60’s song. I found an awesome digital print titled “Twist” by RC Page at Deviant Art and obtained permission from the artist to use it as my cover.
