I'm making a mix CD for my mother for Xmas. She likes palatable country, stuff that sounds good to most people. I haven't looked through my collection yet, but I'm going to throw in "Housewives Choice" by Derrick and Patsy, which if you're familiar with the tune might give you an idea of the mood of the mix.

So, song suggestions would be appreciated. Non-offensive 50s or 60s country or other motherly tunes.

And what was all that shit about Vietnam? [29 Sep 2005|03:16pm]

I want to make a mix of songs about Vietnam (good anti-war songs, songs about being in the war, songs about avoiding the war, etc). They don't necessarily have to be from that era, just about it. I have a few in mind but my memory could use jogging. That is why I come to you. Your suggestions (and uploaded mp3s, if you have things) would be appreciated greatly because I'd rather not end up just remaking the Forrest Gump soundtrack.

Here's what I have for starters, including a few I've found via research and don't have (like the Grace Slick song):

Johnny Wright - Hello, Vietnam
Creedence - Fortunate Son
Television Personalities - Back to Vietnam
Edwin Starr - War
The Charlie Daniels Band - Still In Saigon (need mp3)
Barry McGuire - Eve of Destruction (need mp3)
Country Joe & the Fish - Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin-To-Die Rag (need mp3)
Grace Slick - Rejoyce (MUST HAVE THIS MP3, it's somehow based on Ulysses)

Phil Ochs wrote like 4000 and if anyone has a favorite that'd be neat. I don't want it to be purely some folksy hippie bullshit. I want modern stuff too if it exists. I'm just drawing a blank.

Raising hell in a gorilla suit [29 Sep 2005|02:50pm]

Someone threw this idea for a mix at me: Raising Hell in a Gorilla Suit. I'm taking this as loosely as possible including songs about apes, featuring ape noises, as well as songs about petty crime, light-hearted merry-making and lieds that embody that kind of chaos and disarray one would expect to result from monkey business.

The list so far--

XbXrX - Go ape
Half Japanese - Monkey hand
Badawi - Stampede
Aa - Static rights
The Slits - Shoplifting
Coachwhips - I drank what?
Boris The Sprinkler - Anarchy bob at the mayo clinic
The Arrows - Make love not war
Dog Faced Hermans - Punjabi monster beat
Frank Zappa - Take your clothes off when you dance
Tiger Lillies - Start a fire (best song on the mix, so far)

Edited to add::
Beastie Boys - Heart attack man
The Dickies - You drive me ape
Municipal Waste - Waste 'em all

I don't have too much knowledge of novelty music, nor any sort of punk that isn't angry and pessimistic. Any suggestions in those or any other appropriate songs would be great.

[27 Aug 2005|09:05pm]

This isn't exactly the most original idea, but upon hearing so many people say that they listen to "everything", I was inspired to make a mix with a ridiculously diverse amount of musical styles without being all over the place in a bad way. So far i've got some French pop, bluegrass, folk piano, jazz vibes (some Lionel Hampton), Swedish folk, Indie pop, post-rock, doom jazz (Bohren und der club of gore), sound collage/ambient, Ukrainian folk, 60s pop, Hammond organ (eric malmberg), electronic/jazz (jaga jazzist), surf (the Mermen, upon recommendation in here), and epic metal.

But I need more. Give some suggestions for other genres, or even songs. I'm trying to make this all pretty accessible and catchy, which is possible in I think any genre beyond straight up noise or minimal electronica.

When I'm done I'll post it with mp3s.

- Palmer
