The Forgotten Mix Tapes

Upbeat Mix CD

Here's the mix I've been 'working' (arf) on lately, made for a pal who wanted something to play loud and jump about to:

Musically Upbeat Mix

My tracklisting:

Walking Barefoot - Ash ...One of the great power pop bands IMHO, a great, bursting intro gives way to an ideal piece of pop to make you smile

Undone (The Sweater Song) - Weezer ...Straight into a track by a band influentual on the previous group, sad and euphoric at the saem time, especially, 'woo hoo hoo' coda

Velouria - Pixies ... Current fave Pixies track, love the keening, soulful verses

The One - Foo Fighters ...More big, dumb rock from Dave Grohl, who should be too old to be writing lyrics like this but its a great bounce along track

Take Me To The Riot - Stars ...amazing standout from the Canadians dramatic new album. Vocals reminiscent of Moz

Israel's Son - Silverchair ...Don't know much about this one, included simply because it's a favourite of the person the mix is made for. Frantic, rock-out at the end

Heinrich Manouver - Interpol ...Who cares about the 'oblique' lyrics when the musis is so dynamic?

Never Let Me Down Again - Depeche Mode ...Probably doesn't need to be introduced to folk on here. Majestic

New Years - Asobi Seksu - Like a punch-up in a candyfloss shop. Thumping, shoegazing pop, full of vocal hooks

Taste The Last Girl - Sons And Daughters ...A Smiths-like standout from the groups excellent last album

Giddy Stratospheres - Long Blondes ...Danceable pop imploring it's subject to dump their boring partner who won't let them take them on all fours again. Cue dancing round the living room

I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You - Black Kids ...Couldn't resist a song with a title like that and glad I didn't. Great lyrics and a chorus to shout.

Standing In The Way Of Control - The Gossip ...Opinions on Beth Ditto aside, she has a great voice and this is great pop

Beating Heart Baby - Head Automatic ...More danceable rock pop, anyone familiar with Daryl's band Glassjaw may well be surprised by this track

Black Minds White Lies - Salty Pirates ...Came across the track on "The Kids At The Club", an indiepop collection. The band are from Sweden and this track is structured to incite euphoria by the second time the chorus explodes

Take The Skinheads Bowling - Camper Van Beethoven ...Found out about this track after it was covered by the Manics, surreal lyrics and great chorus

Shakespeares Sister - The Smiths :)

Perfect - Fairground Attraction ...Thought this would sound good coming after Shakes, same kind of 'vibe', can't fail to smile

Valerie (Zutons Cover) - Mark Ronson/Amy Winehouse ...again, opinions aside, Amy could sing Matchbook f***in 20 tracks and make them appealing. Great production, 100 times better than the original

Lovefool (Cardigans Cover) - Just Jack ...Surprisingly good cover of (IMHO) a sickly sweet original

For Reasons Unknown - The Killers ...some bombast to finish with, my new fave of theirs. Think Morrissey would sound great singing this.

If you download this, let me know what you think!:)
