This is the tracklist for a mix CD I made. It has no theme at all and is kind of all over the place. I don’t know where it gets that from.
BRANDIâ€™S THEMELESS AND SLIGHTLY SPORADIC MIX CD
1. Keep Your Hands To Yourself â€“ Georgia Satellites
This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Itâ€™s a great karaoke song and it reminds me of when I was little and my dad and his friends would have parties at our house and set up a band and do cover songs. I also put this on my CD for the last circle, so sorry, Bethany.
2. Hate â€“ Fiction Plane
The lead singer of Fiction Plane is Stingâ€™s son. I really like this whole album, but this is by far my favorite of their songs. I love the opening lines â€“ weâ€™re cool, weâ€™re different, and we hate things.
3. One More Day â€“ The Wood Brothers
One of the Wood Brothers is in Medeski, Martin and Wood. That doesnâ€™t really mean anything to me, but it might to you. The other brother wrote this song. We saw them live and it was very cool.
4. If Youâ€™re Here When I Get Back â€“ John Eddie
I donâ€™t really have anything to say about this song except I like it. Profound, huh?
5. Lifestyle â€“ Daniel Tashian
Google was supposed to help me tell you more about this song, like what rap song the lyrics came from. But I donâ€™t know. I do know that this song makes me laugh, though. Daniel Tashian is the singer of a local band that used to be called The Bees and is now called The Silver Seas, and they make cool music.
6. It Looks Like Love â€“ Josh Rouse
This song comes on the radio kind of a lot, and every time I say, â€œWho is this? I love this song.â€ Itâ€™s Josh Rouse. He writes good songs.
7. You Were Born For Me â€“ Paul Westerberg
I downloaded this one after I read Nick Hornbyâ€™s Songbook. It gets stuck in my head a lot.
8. Polaroids â€“ Slaraffenland
The intro to this song is really cool. Itâ€™s kind of long, though, so beware. Sometimes itâ€™s on and I donâ€™t realize itâ€™s a song and then the lyrics kick in and it throws me.
9. Nothinâ€™ No â€“ David Vandervelde
I really like this guyâ€™s voice and how full and messy the guitars in this song sound.
10. Rich Girl â€“ The Virgins
Iâ€™ve had this song in my itunes for forever. I donâ€™t know where it came from, and for several months it was just called Track 16. I had googled every single lyric and had no luck. Then I tried it one more time before I wrote this and it came up. So my mystery song is called Rich Girl. Now we all know and can sleep much easier. It is impossible to listen to this song and not bob your head.
11. Look At Little Sister â€“ Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble
If you donâ€™t love Stevie Ray Vaughn, I question your sanity.
12. Why Do I Love You â€“ Holly Williams
Holly Williams has a really good old country voice and makes great records. She is also Hank Williams Jr.â€™s daughter.
13. Sail Away â€“ David Gray
David Gray is very important in our house. This is my favorite of his songs. I think.
14. Holy Holy Holy â€“ Phil Wickham
I really love Phil Wickhamâ€™s voice. His whole album is good, but none of it really sounds like this song does.
15. Center of Attention â€“ Jackson Waters
Jackson Waters is the only band Aaron ever worked on at Word that I liked. He is talking to them about managing them, and I am really excited. It would be worth your while to look them up.
16. King of Failures â€“ Remedy Drive
Remedy is the band Aaron left Gotee to manage. They are pretty straight up Christian pop, but I think they have a good thing going. This is my favorite song of theirs.
17. Beautiful Lord â€“ Leeland
This song is my Desperado. When it comes on in the car I make everyone stop talking so I can focus on it. I donâ€™t usually like to listen to worship music on my own, but this song is seriously beautiful. It moves me, yâ€™all.
18. Did I Ever Become â€“ The Khrusty Brothers
Yâ€™all should really download the Khrusty Brothers. Don Chaffer = awesome.
19. Hallelujah (Live at KCRW) â€“ Brandi Carlile
Do I really need to explain why I included this one? She is amazing.
