Consider Defragmenting

In my growth towards appreciation of my music beyond album boundaries I have glued together a number of unconnected songs in a fragmentally wild collection of old time radio classics, highlights from new albums, prereleases, rarities and other forms of favourites. Creating an iMix on iTunes won’t work (yet?), so here’s my way of sharing it.

The list contains 42 songs and it lasts 2,7 hours:

  • Tired Pony: I Finally Love This Town (2010)
  • The House of Love: Shine On (from: The House of Love, 1988)
  • Warpaint: Ashes to Ashes (Single, 2010)
  • Soul Coughing: Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago (from: Ruby Vroom, 1994)
  • Soul Asylum: Runaway Train (from: Grave Dancers Union, 1992)
  • Interpol: Barricade (Single, 2010)
  • Interpol: Lights (Single, 2010)
  • Black Grape: Kelly’s Heroes (from: It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah, 1995)
  • The Charlatans: The Only One I Know (from: Melting Pot, 1997)
  • Siglo XX: It’s All Over Now (from: Siglo XX: The Early Eighties (1980-1986), 2006)

Rest of list:

  • Killing Joke: End Game (2010)
  • The Clash: The Magnificent Seven (from: Sandinista!, 1980)
  • The Stooges: No Fun (Remastered) (from: The Stooges (Deluxe Edition), 1969)

  • Natalia & Gabriel Rios: Hallelujah (Edit) (2010)

  • Jónsi: Sinking Friendships (Acoustic) (2010)

  • Placebo: Where Is My Mind (Xfm Live)  (2003)
  • Editors: Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool (Radio Edit) (from: Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool – EP, 2010)
  • Peter Murphy: Transmission (Live and Cracklin) (Live At Highline Ballroom NYC) (Secret Covers, 2009)
  • Daniel Ash: Flame On (from: It’s a Burn Out, 2009)
  • Editors: Papillon (Radio Mix) (from: Papillon – EP, 2009)
  • Editors: Alone (from: Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool – EP, 2010)
