first post
Joined this comm w/o looking too closely at posting history - looks as if it's kinda dying, or at least moving real, real slow, so this may be a futile post. Oh well, futility is almost my middle name. 

I made this a few nights ago - it came w/ an accompanying essay about Saturday nights in the South, where I live. I try to avoid putting more than one song by any one artist on a playlist, unless it bookends, as here, or somehow fits the overall point. 

For me, mixes and playlists are all about flow. I like to be eclectic and go in a number of different directions, sample different flavors and colors, but the songs have to segue in a sensible manner. If the segue is too jarring, I don't care how cool the transition or transposition may be - it goes.


The Church of Saturday Night

1) Eddie Floyd - Knock On Wood
2) Rufus Thomas - Walking the Dog
3) Rolling Stones - Harlem Shuffle
4) Kenny Brown - In the Mood
5) Van Morrison - Midnight Special
6) Janis Joplin - One Good Man
7) The Ronettes - Be My Baby
8) The Raconteurs - The Switch and the Spur
9) Los Fabulosos Cadillacs - El Matador
10) Lil Wayne - Let the Beat Build
11) Love- Alone Again Or
12) Bow Wow Wow - I Want Candy
13) Lou Reed - Rock&Roll Heart
14) The Leisure Class - Jesus
15) Silver Jews - Party Barge
16) Sam Sham & the Pharoahs - Wooly Bully
17) Loretta Lynn - Mrs. Leroy Brown
18) Bruce Springsteen -Backstreets
19) Maria McKee - Panic Beach
20) Louis Armstrong - Tin Roof Blues
21) Eddie Floyd - Bring It On Home to me

The Polls are In!
The winner with a whopping 67% of the vote is... Barack Obama! Oops, I mean Musical Geography. So if you're filled with audacious hope about this month's theme, come on down to our place at 7pm on Wednesday Apr 23rd. (I'll email the address for obvious reasons)
The rules again are this:
  • At least 10 songs
  • No more than 2 songs per artist including side projects (e.g. Morrissey and the Smiths)
  • The theme is a loose suggestion (If you want to do a CD filled with Chicago, Boston and Kansas, go ahead, but don't be surprised when no one listens to it :-))

We'll be grilling for dinner. Brats and burgers sound good? Bring a six-pack, bottle of wine or a mixer for your favorite liquor (We'll have gin, vodka, tequila, and whiskey.)

Current Guest List (please bring one CD per bullet point) :
