  • Songs for children (and plastered adults in stuffy downstairs venues)

    Lug 28 2008, 20:00

    When I play records I often get a bit drunk. You know, alcohol being free and put in your hand, what can you do? And while some memories from the night might hide away in very distant corners of my mind, I always surprise myself with remembering my playlists spookily accurately. Maybe not so much the order, but the songs I played. I daresay I like my own taste, but then again don't we all.
    Here's what I played at So tough! So cute! when I was home in Malmö last week

    Broder Daniel - Whirlwind
    Lydia Lunch - Feed
    Buzzcocks - Orgasm Addict
    Blondie - Denis
    Sonic Youth - Sugar Kane
    McCarthy - Should the bible be banned
    Monochrome Set - I'll scry instead
    The Cat's Miaow - Climb my stairs
    The Wolfhounds - I'm not like everybody else

    Epitome of sound - You don't love me
    Wave Pictures - I love you like a madman
    The Smiths - You just haven't earned it yet baby
    Coming Soon - Big boy
    Darren Hayman - Bad police woman
    Elvis Presley - Suspicious minds
    Lulu & the luvvers - Shout
    Magnetic Fields - Washington DC
    Pulp - Mis-shapes

    1910 Fruitgum Company - May I take a giant step into your heart?
    The Ramones - She talks to rainbows
    Au Pairs - You
    The Shapes - What's for lunch mom
    The Siddeleys - Love grows (where my Rosemary goes)
    Orange Juice - Consolation Prize
    Billie Davis - Tell him
    The Jaynettes - Sally go 'round the roses
    Marianne Faithful - I'm a loser
    Al Green - I wanna hold your hand
    Le Tigre - My my metrocard
    Bobby Paris -Personally

    Diana Ross and the Supremes - Love is like an itching in my heart
    Jellybeans - You don't mean me no good
    Beck - Sexx laws
    Hanson - Mmmbop
    Herman Dune - You could be a model, goodbye
    Brilliant Corners - Teenage
    Luther Ingram - If it's all the same to you babe
    Beach Boys - Sloop John B

    I also found a playlist for when I played at the very same club (I'd also, while I have opportunity, like to fall on my knees and thank Daniel (myhairlooksflat) for inviting me back to his great club nights every now and then) about a year ago. It's far too many songs for me to have played alone, so I'm supposing it's what I remembered that D played as well. However, here we go

    Billy Bragg - Greeting to the new brunette
    Jeffrey Lewis - The last time I did acid I went insane
    Blondie - Call me
    The Smiths - Stop me if you think you've heard this one before

    Lio - Banana split
    Kleenex/LiLiPUT - Hitch hike
    Waitresses - I know what boys like
    Voxtrot - The start of something
    Belle & Sebastian - Me and the major

  • Tracklist for Indie Mondays 27/11

    Nov 29 2006, 13:53

    Did my best to memorize what tracks we played. The list will serve mostly as a note-to-self. Well, all the same I'm pretty sure I got all of my own songs right but I might have forgotten most of what Linn played. But I'm only human - it was after all four hours of disc spinning. And the order is a bit fucked up as well, except for the end and the beginning which I remember quite allright.(And yes I'm ever so responsible for "Mmmbop")
