Hi, The point (if there is a point) of this blog is to post liner notes and playlists of mix CDs originating from moi and hopefully fanning out into a chain of mix CDs. If you get a CD from me, make me and a friend one, and email me some liner notes and I'll post them. Then your friend should make you and someone else a mix CD etc etc. Maybe it will work PS If you want to be on my knit list, let me know what you want and I'll see what I can do!

Getting Started

I'm watching the 'Today' show, and Katie Couric is interviewing three gossip hacks about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Is this not totally weird in so many ways? One, why is this 'news', two, why are the gossip hacks second guessing Braddie and Angelina's actions at all credible, and three who gives a shit?

Anyway, I digress because this blog was supposed to be about exchanging mix CDs and posting people's liner notes and playlists. I made some CDs and gave one to my friend and then read some post on someone's blog where giving someone a mix CD is akin to professing you want to fuck their brains out. Err - I don't think so. Unfortunately for me, completely ignoring someone is my expression of wanting to fuck their brains out.

Back to the CD - here is my playlist and liner notes:

Marianne's CD
LoadedPrimal ScreamThis is what was happening in the UK when grunge was happening here.
StereotypeThe SpecialsWhat a great band - you will be going 'ah-ah-ah' like Boris Karloff after hearing this
Next ExitInterpolI know people like to bag on these guys for trying to sound like Joy Division, but I like this song. This is definitely one to sing in the car 'We ain't going to the t-o-w-n, we're going to the city' and try out your bass profundo
Young PilgrimsThe ShinsSomehow, the Shins remind me of Squeeze and I'm not really sure why
Should I Stay Or Should I GoIce Cube Feat. Mack 10 This works way better this way than the original (Parental Advisory!)
HurtJohnny Cash God, I can't listen to this song without tearing up. Between Trent Reznor's lyrics and Johnny Cash's old broken voice, this is amazing
Darts Of PleasureFranz Ferdinand Back to something fluffy and sexy. I like to think the 'German' part is 'Ich heise super fantastic, ich heise chocolate elastic'
Happy HouseSiouxsie & the Banshees Now I'm going to my room because I DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN and NO-ONE UNDERSTANDS ME
Everything In Its Right PlaceRadiohead Now I want to spin around and around and around until I can't stand up
JeepsterMarc Bolan & T.Rex I am glad I'm old enough to have seen these guys on Top of the Pops. Can you believe this is more than 30 years old?
Ready Or NotThe Fugees I have a girl crush on Lauryn Hill - beautiful, talented and bat-shit crazy
How Soon Is Now?The Smiths Who doesn't like the Smiths? They can make you laugh and depress you at the same time
Got To Get You Into My LifeThe Beatles I'm fascinated by Beatles tunes of this era - did they 'crossover' yet? I think this must have sounded incredibly innovative in 1966 from a bunch of white boys
The Stars Of Track And FieldBelle & Sebastian Just listening to them makes me feel pale and delicate, although I'm only pale and rather strapping actually
