Its been a while since we've talked and I am not sure if you even want to still but I figured I would be the adult here for once and I would talk first.
I am slowly getting back to writing daily and its nice to say that I have had some inspiration as of late.
I had many hilarious things to talk about then I got started on a new mix for my ipod.
Its incredibly difficult to make a mix for any occasion but the one that I am considering will take me a few days. You know those mixes that let you sit back with your hands behind your head...they let your eyes close and sink into that void of contentment...
Its like when you're at a concert and the main act comes out for the first time...you hear the guitars humming while they are tuned. You hear the crowds anticipation building for those first few chords to make the experience take flight. Examples of best 1st songs at concerts:
* Welcome to the Jungle - GNR - literally that duh nuh nuh nuh nuh; duh nuh nuh nuh nuh.... sends chills down my spine.
* Intergalactic - Beastie Boys - no need for further explanation
* Still Dre - Dr. Dre & Eminem - again, not much of an explanation needed...
They set the tone for whats in store for you...they make the night completely memorable and usually are hard to top...
So this is my mission - I am on the quest for the perfect mix.
Elbow has been included in this mix as a friend sold me on them about a year ago and I can't get enough...so has timeless music like Lou Reed, Miles Davis and newer music like Duffy or Muse...There will be some Frampton and also Peter Gabriel...
Got any suggestions for me? Comment below... It's gotta be perfect!
