MIX MASTER ZONER!

Postby Vegeta on Tue Oct 24, 2006 11:25 pm

I had, quite some time ago started an "Ultimate Mix Tape" thread, but this thread is a little different. The aftermentioned thread was about your best mixes. This thread isn't...


This thread is about any mix you've recently made. Why you made it. How you packaged it. What's the signifigance. Why it matters to you... ect.

Basically, this thread is about sharing with fellow zoners your thoughts and feelings regarding your mix. I hope this doesn't turn into a 'your taste sucks' thread. If that's the case, then my intentions have gone completely sideways. :(

Regardless, the reason this thread dawned on me, is I just put together a mix CD for my father after my parents recent visit. See, we were driving around and he had an instant affininty for "Things have Changed" by Bob Dylan (that I played in the voyage). So much so that he requested to get a copy of that song (a rare request by my father, indeed). So, I came home and spent about an hour and a half putting together a mix today (that I hope he likes all the way through) and a nifty cover:

Now, I am sure most of you will do an "upturned nose" at the song selections, but I really hope my Dad likes it. :wink:


At any rate, I hope you mix junkies out there want to wander in and share! :D

If your dad likes it, why not? There are a few fine songs there. I haven't made a mix in a long time, but Julia keeps meaning to burn compilations of the torch songs she got into some years back.

I made a five-cassette mix for a friend years ago. Many years ago. I have no idea what was on it, but it ranged from "The Planet Krypton" from the Superman soundtrack to Jim Carrol's "People Who Died." And some Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Richard Thompson, Fleetwood Mac, Steve Martin bluegrass ...

I havn't done a proper mix in a long long time, it is an art though. I love crafting a story from the selection and order you use. I love the chance I might expose someone to something thye dig yet never heard before.

Vegeta, did you choose these songs because they were all thematically similar or did you just figure they'd be close to your dad's sensibilities? It doesn't affect the quality of the mix, I'm just curious.

My Dad isn't a big music fan, so this mix was definetly designed to his sensibilities. Although, it does have some thematic action going on (also a fairly rustic feel). My mix habits apparently die hard. :wink:

I haven't made this mix yet, but it's been brewing in my mind for years. I'm going to call it "Eight Tracks." I want to find a good image of an 8-track player from back in the day, maybe some promotional material. The point of it is the fact that I find that the best song on a lot of CDs I own is track number 8. It's a silly concept, but it works for me.

That is very very nice! I meant to do this for my Dad, for Father's Day, just didn't end up doing it. His birthday is just around the corner, so there is still hope.

I've been building mixes since I was a kid. I think my very first mix was on a tape cassette. I used to pick fast paced tunes for mogul munching (aka skiing the bumps for those of you who don't know what a mogul munch is). The mix's sole purpose was to provide quick beats to quick turns on the moguls, it worked.

Anyhoo, good job. Your project was heartfelt and I'm sure greatly appreciated by your pops. When I put my Dad's mix together, I'll post. It'll likely consist of Neil Diamond, Gordon Lightfoot and Ray Coniff ;)

I've been doing Mother's and Father's Day mixes for several years. It's always a challenge to see how far I can push the envelope on what they'll listen to. Here's this year's Father's Day Mix:

"Dance Tonight" - Paul McCartney
"Helpless" (young cover) - Patti Smith
"Eyes On The Prize" - Mavis Staples
"Either Way" - Wilco
"Thinking Of You" - Norah Jones
"Say Hello" - Rosie Thomas & Sufjan Stevens
"Ain't No Reason" - Brett Dennen
"This Is Us" - Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris
"Yankee Bayonet" - The Decemberists w/ Laura Viers
"Angel With An Attitude" - The Ditty Bops
"Mushaboom" - Feist
"Outrageous" - Paul Simon
"Bus Stop" - The Hollies
"2000 Miles" - The Pretenders
"Better Off Dead" - Randy Newman
"It's Hard To Kill A Bad Thing" - Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan
"Woman King" - Iron & Wine
"Hallelujah" - Jeff Buckley

Yep... pretty mellow mostly. Last year I did throw on "Are You Experienced" just for grins though :)

Which one, Hendrix or Devo? :wink:

Yeah, may also do one for my Mom as well. She likes Rod Stewart, but I may throw some Joplin in there for her just to liven it up a bit.

It was Hendrix. But that gives me an idea for next year!

Maybe Devo's version of "Satisfaction"... Dad'll disown me :wink:

It should be mandatory for every "Summer MIX" to have at least one Weezer track. So, very good.

You folks ever exchange CDs? It's kinda a fun thing to do.

A friend of mine from work burned a CD for me. The theme was heavy metal consisting of Pantera, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, etc. The quirkiest thing he did though was the very 1st track on the CD amongst all these ear bleeding songs was Luck be a Lady by Frank Sinatra. I asked him why he did this, he said he wanted a drastic change from the 1st track to the rest of the songs - he was also trying to be funny. He succeeded. There was an intense riot going on in both of my ears and I did chuckle.

You know, Amon Duul also have a song called Metropolis. Has nothing to do with Kraftwerk's, but it's nice to see them both paying homage to Lang. Both great tracks by the way.

Anyway, I know you're into Kraftwerk already, but out of all the Krautrockers, I'd most heartily recommend Faust, who even had a song called Krautrock on Faust IV. Julian Cope said of them in his book, Krautrocksampler, "There is no group more mythical than Faust". Out of their albums, I'm the biggest fan of their first two, though Faust IV is definitely their most accessible and would be a good starting point. Also The Faust Tapes, which was originally released for the price of a single, is a great place to move onto.

They made some pretty wild music, though always with tongue set firmly in cheek, but I'd even go on to say that Faust are probably my favourite no longer existant band. Although I do hear they play the odd gig every now and then.

EDIT: Sorry Veg for the thread-jack.

Working on one at the moment. Its a bit long at the moment, and needs ordering for some kind of sequential story structure, but there's some pretty unique stuff there. Bit of Santana, bit of Foo Fighters, as well as the Nirvana cover of 'Man Who Sold The World.' I find it helps me when writing to break down the script into song titles, which create a theme and aesthetic for the story.

That, or just write carnage exposition.

Yup, had a little fun in Microsoft Publisher!

In fact there is a little Faith versus Buffy theme going on from Faith's perspective in the tunes.

Not quite sure why there's a line at the bottom, because there isn't in the image in photobucket... weird.

Is it for when you're reading comic books and whatnot Veg, or was it just sort of inspired by the Faith/Buffy thing?

In fact there is a little Faith versus Buffy theme going on from Faith's perspective in the tunes.

Not quite sure why there's a line at the bottom, because there isn't in the image in photobucket... weird.


Is it for when you're reading comic books and whatnot, or was it just sort of inspired by the Faith/Buffy thing?


Cd is mostly inspired from the whole Buffy vs Faith thing from season 3. The cover for that particular comic inspired me, that and I wanted to make a rocking mix. Love the S8 comics, even though the interior artwork is shit.

Thanks Bayou! MCR didn't make an appearance because I am not that familiar with them (don't oen any of their albums, but have heard a few songs).

Their latest CD is pretty damn good, considering the whole emo thing. If you have had or are currently going through the shitstorm of a loved one with cancer, this CD is a must have.

Oh, and the track "Teenagers"........ frakking bad-assed. Bluesy and raw. Kinda like Ugly Kid Joe's "(I hate) Everything about you".....Except with talent.
