...Mix Worthy Songs...

I really enjoy making music mixes, but as of late, I have been too busy to. This may clue you into why I've been posting so much about artists that I've been listening to as opposed to putting up my own artwork . As I listen to albums, I'm constantly coming across songs that make me think, "This would sound great on a mix". Here are a few of those kind of songs.

"Donovan: Get Thy Bearings"
This song is off Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy album. I picked this record up at a library booksale a couple of weeks back, and this song really stood out to me.

"Led Zepplin: Bron y aur Stomp"
I'm impressed with how this song sounds separated from the rest of its album. This track is from Led Zepplin III, of course, but I have a new found appreciation for it thanks to a fashion show video that used this song as part of its music selection. I found the video after checking out some Turquoise Wisdom mixes and then peeping Rodarte, a fashion design group that TW often collaborates with. This song has new life to me.

"Pink Floyd: Fearless"
This song was also in the Rodarte fashion show video. You don't hear Pink Floyd stuff
like this that often. In fact, this is really the only song on their Meddle album that sounds anything like this. Really nice tune.

  1. I love The Bron Y Aur Stomp! For three years, I've been pretty obsessed with it. I first heard it on How the West Was Won, a live album of theirs. It blew my mind with the crowd cheering and everything, being scratchy like a record. We used to drive around in the blazing heat listening to this song as loud as we could. Over and over and can I say, over ...again.
