My friend Sean has a neat idea...each year, he creates a compilation CD of all his favorite or most played songs of the year. He just gave me a copy of his 2005 mix (whee! new music!), and I thought it was a snifty idea, hence my own music mix.
Besides, I like lists. ;-)
And maybe you'll find a tune or two to preview on iTunes...
And without further ado, my 2005 music mix...some are new songs, some are old, some just resonated at the time, some are always on, and some were just rediscovered.
Eclectic and weird, quiet and dance-infused, angry and sad, pop to opera...
Right Where It Belongs - Nine Inch Nails (aka "the new Hurt" from With Teeth; Trent pouring out his heart...)
Freak On A Leash (Dante Ross Mix) - Korn (a fab, FAB must-have remix)
John The Revelator - Depeche Mode (new dance tune from the new CD)
Lullaby - The Cure (Robert Smith. Sexy. Rawr.)
All Night - Def Leppard (otherwise known as the "if I were a stripper..." song by the Divas)
Lebanese Blonde - Thievery Corporation (great song from Garden State)
Canned Heat - Jamiroquai (I *have* to dance when I hear this)
Let Go - Frou Frou (another great song from Garden State)
Beautiful Day - Mellowdrone (short but haunting)
Pedal to the Metal - Kazzer (a must-listen when behind the wheel)
One Fine Day (Madame Butterfly) - OperaBabes (the final crescendo always gives me goosebumps)
Slither - Velvet Revolver (rock on, G n R part II!)
Everything Is Everything - Phoenix (addicting song from Six Feet Under)
Howling - Morcheeba (originally heard on La Femme Nikita, recently rediscovered)
Clubbed to Death [Kurayamino Variation] - Rob Dougan (a constant song since first hearing it all those years ago in the first Matrix movie)
All Day Long I Dream About Sex - JC Chasez (this makes me giggle, and then dance)
Breathe Me - Sia (haunting voice, haunting song from Six Feet Under)
To Get Down - Timo Maas (most famous as part of a Budweiser commercial)
Big Mistake - Chainsuck (also originally heard on La Femme Nikita, recently rediscovered)
Angel - Massive Attack (dark, sexy, amazing)
In the Waiting Line - Zero (apparently, I loved Garden State's music)
