2010 Music Mix

It's time for another yearly "mix tape" of a few of Marissa's favorite songs for the year, those that got the most spin on ye olde iTouch...

Some of the songs are new, some are old, some are rediscoveries, and some just f'n rock for all time. ;-) Maybe you'll find one or two to check out...


Right Here, Right Now - Fatboy Slim
(Caught a snippet of this song somewhere, got it stuck in my head, and it's been in rotation ever since. Rockin' good "rock out" song - totally gets things going in the morning!)

Paradise Circus - Massive Attack
(Heard in an episode of True Blood, and since I already dig MA, knew I had to own it. Have played it roughly 489073450 times since downloading. Gor-ge-ous, and with great vocals from Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval. Turns out, later in the year, a mix of the song featured in the Lincoln car commercials featuring foxy John Slattery. Nice.)

Tainted Love - Straight No Chaser
(Because really, you can't go wrong with an a capella version of this song sung by IU boys. Want an extra laugh - watch the vid for the song!)

At the End of the Day - Amon Tobin
(This was a catchy instrumental I heard on Pandora, and immediately downloaded. A great song for when I'm out walking...)

Saladin - Harry Gregson-Williams, remixed by Hybrid
(Same story as above: Pandora-download-walking. Rock on!)

Moon - Mickey Mouse Operation
(Several songs on this whole album popped up in Pandora, so I downloaded the whole shebang - great album! This is just one of the fab songs on the album.)

My Friend - Groove Armada
(I defy you to not shake your ass to this song. Seriously. It makes me smile.)

The Space In Between - How to Destroy Angels
(HTDA is the lovechild of NIN's Trent Reznor and his wife Mariqueen. A haunting song with a seriously weird video. Check it out...)

Marie Antoinette Soundtrack - Various Artists
(One of my favorite movies, so I sprung for the album - lots of great songs, ranging from rock to gentle instrumental for great variety.)

Nobody Moves (Til We Say Go) - Street Sweeper Social Club
(They opened for NIN last year, so the album was a must have. This song just makes me wanna shout out the chorus!)
Just Like You Imagined - Nine Inch Nails
(Yeah. The 300 trailer. The obligatory NIN song inclusion. This song was in constant rotation all year, still. Yeah. Many a morning I screeched into the library parking lot with this blaring, hoping to garner some chutzpah to get through the day.)

Clubbed to Death [Kurayamino Variation] - Rob Dougan
(This is always on the playlist, and has been since 1999.)
