August 2008

My partner, Poppycrock, and I had pretty similar artists in our library and nothing new to either of us seemed to jump out so we had to stray from the theme somewhat.
I noticed that our respective most popular artists were entirely different so suggested that we send each other one song from our top 20.
So here are my songs from my top 20 artists, imaginatively titled 'Muzikizum's Top 20 Artists'...

October 2008

Hello everybody, not a bad theme choice this month.
I've stuck to the original premise of this month's theme and compiled a 30 minute mix of songs that are no longer than 2 minutes.
I had 1,907 tracks to choose from so whittling down proved to be a challenge, which I overcame with some brandy and joints. It's fairly quirky, so could prove a bit hit & miss for some of you, but I did it in one six-hour 'session' and was a bit frazzled by the end of it, but all in all, i'm quite pleased with it. So here it is for my mix partner candeecandee...


1. What Is This Thing Called Love? - Keeley Smith
2. Voodoo Wop - Clinic
3. Ready Or Not - The Delfonics
4. Half Timer - The Young Knives
5. Warning! - The Music Tapes
6. El Azteca - Man Man
7. Do They Owe Us A Living? - Jeffrey Lewis with Kimya Dawson
8. I Hate Myself - Daniel Johnston
9. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want - The Smiths
10. On Glaze - Department Of Eagles
11. Queen Of Quiet - Erin McKeown
12. Poor People Of Paris - Winifred Atwell
13. Dirty Mix - Eli Porter
14. So You Won't Deceive Me - Tiger! Tiger!
15. I Can Tell You - White Denim
16. Yes, I'm Finished - Cobra Killer
17. Start Button - Private Thoughts In Public Places
18. Pocket Watch - Ennio Morricone

November 2008
