I'm a big fan of the mixtape, so I thought I'd join up. I've posted some stuff to Art of the Mix because it's pretty fun to see what other folks' mixes are, but I'm also one of the folks who works on the Mixtape Wiki over at Your Subculture Soundtrack (well, I work on the rest of it, too). I just like that idea of having a mixtape wiki since it's cool to have people who are the type who write notes about songs they choose for their mixtapes to be able to have the song-notes all cross-referenced. Sorta like, if I put a song on a mixtape of mine, and you put the same one on one of yours, someone else can see what each of us have to say about that song -- getting different points of view on it.

So, one of the things we've been doing is putting in a bunch of albums so folks can review those, too. But, what that does is on the wanted pages list, brings up a bunch of songs. So, to get those off, what I did was compile a mix of those songs. But to make it interesting for myself and keeping it from basically being a DEVO/TMBG best-of, I went with non-standard versions where I could; live versions, demos, remixes, etc. (See, I'm actually getting to the point!) It's downloadable here (100MB Zip), and the notes are here.

The TracklistingCollapse )It's not as good as some mixes I've done, just because of the varying natures of these songs, but, if you're a fan of the acts, it might be kind of interesting. And, well, I'll have better mixes later! So, anyway, though, hope you dig it!

Making a mixtape...

I'm trying to make a mixtape with songs that represent the mood I've been in lately. Most of which revolve around my ex-boyfriend. I need songs about feeling not good enough, still being in love with him, wishing to move on, feeling jealous of his current girlfriend, remembering the good times, regret, him changing, him covering up his feelings and/or being thankful for all the good times and the experience.

As for genre of music, I'm open to anything and everything.

Thanks in advance.

(X-posted like crazy.)

I just heard "Singing in the Bathtub" by Robert Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders for the first time and felt inspired to make a bathtub mix. Any ideas?

Hey! A mixtape community that has good music listed! A rare find, indeed. Alot of mix tape communities are really not very helpful because they suggest really really terrible stuff. "John Mayer is GREAT for road trips!" Erk.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody could maybe suggest some good songs that could help a baby get to sleep? My best friend's baby is turning one next weekend, and I wanted to make him a tape. I certainly don't want him to grow up listening to crap music, and good sleeping music should make his dreams a little more intersting or something.

Thank you very very much for any help.
