Let's admit it. This was the best DI ever just for this one reason. Jake should have took it all.

At least he included an older Tame Impala track. I loved this list. Ranked it near the top.

Entry:

Title: Uptempo/Downtempo

Cover Art:



The underlying concept of this list is a simple one: songs that make me want to move. Not all of them would fall under the category of "dance" or even "electronica," but they all boast a groove or beat that I find infectious and energizing in some way or another.

2. TV on the Radio - "Second Song" - Nine Types of Light (4:20)
3. Hercules & Love Affair - "Hercules Theme" - Hercules & Love Affair (4:30)
4. Prince - "Kiss" - The Hits 2 (3:46)
5. Blondie - "Rapture" - Greatest Hits (5:36)
6. The Rolling Stones - "Miss You" - Some Girls (4:49)
7. Elton John - "I Don't Wanna Go on with You Like That" - Reg Strikes Back (4:33)
8. New Order - "Bizarre Love Triangle [Shep Pettibone 12" Mix]" - Brotherhood Expanded Edition (6:46)
9. Daft Punk - "Around the World" - Homework (7:09)
10. LCD Soundsystem - "Get Innocuous!" - Sound of Silver (7:12)
11. The Knife - "Silent Shout" - Silent Shout (4:54)
12. Portishead - "Wandering Star" - Dummy (4:54)
13. Burial - "Shell of Light" - Untrue (4:45)
14. Atoms for Peace - "Ingenue" - Amok (4:30)
15. Actress - "Ascending" - R.I.P. (3:08)

Yeah, Tame Impala must have been the most represented artist on these. Much to IWB's ire.

It's strange how it came together. The Elton John-New Order combo came on my iPod shuffle while I was working out, and I built it from there.

Entry:

Saturday Night, Sunday Morning

Forgive me for the admittedly cliché topic, but it gave me some freedom with the sounds and moods I wanted to explore. Saturday night starts off as the protagonist escapes yet again to the city, to find entertainment and sex. Despite the glowing lights and glamour, he thinks of Jane Smiley, whom he left yet again at home after a meaningless argument. The bright lights start to get blurry as he realizes the mistakes he's made. Suddenly, the people around him don't look so extraordinary, and the substances he consumed start to take their toll. He wonders if he will make it through this. Sunday morning is full of regret. He asks for forgiveness, but doesn't expect it. He realizes it's too late. As Jane leaves, he feels alone in the house. He pretends he can have her back and return home to southern Carolina. But he drives alone to the house of his estranged father, frozen underground.

Volume I

1. Kavinsky Feat. Lovefoxxx - "Nightcall" - Drive Original Soundtrack (4:20)
2. M83 - "Midnight City" - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (4:04)

4. Purity Ring - "Fineshrine" - Shrines (3:30)
5. Phantogram - "Mouthful of Diamonds" - Eyelid Movies (4:13)
6. Broken Social Scene - "All to All" - Forgiveness Rock Record (4:50)
7. Autre Ne Veut - "Play by Play" - Anxiety (5:14)

9. Wild Nothing - "Midnight Song" - Nocturne (3:07)
10. Beach House - "Wishes" - Bloom (4:47)

4. The National - "About Today" - Cherry Tree (4:11)
5. Yo La Tengo - "Well You Better" - Fade (2:37)

Gump's list

Like I said at the time. The only issue I had with his list and it's really just a miniscule thing that a lot of people do, was that it relied so heavily on music released in the last few years. Other than that, gooooood shit.

Thank you all! I honestly didn't expect to be this high on the ranking, being my first entry and all. Also, the quality of the playlists overall was really great. I'm happy
Now I'm kinda aching to know who put me on first place...
Ah yes, btw, I'm a girl

BACK TO THE 90s (for ZOOTS)

A tribute to one of our fallen soldiers via his favorite decade.


Zoots Rocks



Part One is a look at alt. rock on both sides of the Atlantic, eschewing the more roots-based acts of the time period. Some fresh indie faces, as well as a few veterans turning up the volume.

1. The Jesus & Mary Chain - "Stardust Remedy" - Munki (2:26)
2. Frank Black - "Thalassocracy" - Teenager Of The Year (1:33)
3. Guided By Voices - "Your Name Is Wild' - Under The Bushes, Under The Stars (2:02)
4. Sugar - "Gee Angel" - File Under: Easy Listening (3:57)
5. The Lemonheads - "The Great Big No" - Come On Feel The Lemonheads (2:52)
6. Spoon - "Loss Leaders" - Soft Effects (EP) (3:29)
7. Helium - "Pat's Trick" - The Dirt Of Luck (3:20)
8. Bettie Serveert - "Balentine" - Palomine (4:12)
9. Dinosaur Jr. - "Yeah Right" - Without A Sound (2:47)
10. Veruca Salt - "Get Back" - American Thighs (3:13)

12. Sammy - "Neptune Ave. (Ortho Hi Rise)" - Tales Of Great Neck Glory (3:56)
13. Liz Phair - "Cinco De Mayo" - Whip-Smart (2:44)
14. Pavement - "Harness Your Hopes" - Spit On A Stranger (single) (3:27)
15. The Wannadies - "Oh Yes (It's A Mess)" - Bagsy Me (4:23)
16. Shudder To Think - "Resident Wine" - 50,000 B.C. (3:34)
17. The Afghan Whigs - "Blame, Etc." - Black Love (4:12)

21. Sleeper - "Lie Detector" - The It Girl (2:32)
22. Electronic - "Late At Night" - Twisted Tenderness (4:14)
23. Super Furry Animals - "Ice Hockey Hair" - Ice Hockey Hair (single) (6:58)

TRT (1:20:21)

Zoots Grooves



Side two is a tour of rhythm-based/electronic music of the decade, beginning with retro/global pop and proceeding through trip-hop/downtempo, Big Beat, drum 'n' bass, etc. Hip-hop only pokes its head in briefly through crossover, as that genre really necessitates its own compilation.

1. Pizzicato Five - "Baby Portable Rock (baby Mexican Rock version)"
- Combinasion Spaciale (EP) - (4:30)
2. Los Amigos Invisibles - "Sexy" - The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera - (3:25)
3. Saint Etienne - "Lose That Girl" - Good Humor (4:03)
4. David Byrne - "Fuzzy Freaky (Mark Walk And Ruby Mix)" - The VIsible Man (2:46)
5. Happy Mondays - "Bob's Yer Uncle" - Pills 'n' Thrills And Bellyaches (5:11)
6. Cornershop - "Sleep On The Left Side " - When I Was Born For The 7th Time (4:06)
7. Massive Attack - "Protection (Underdog's Angel Dust Mix)" - Special Brew (comp.) (4:52)
8. Robbie Robertson & Howie B. - "Take Your Partner By The Hand (Red Alert mix)"
- Contact From The Underworld Of Redboy (6:43)
9. Tricky - "Bad Dreams" - Pre-Millennium Tension - (4:12)
10. The Prodigy - "Diesel Power" - The Fat Of The Land (4:17)
11. Fatboy Slim - "Gangster Tripping" - You've Come A Long Way, Baby (5:20)
12. Underworld - "Jumbo" - Beaucoup Fish (6:58)
13. Everything But The Girl - "Walking Wounded (Omni Trio Remix)" - Walking Wounded (6:44)

TRT (1:03:01)

Speaking of...I feel like such a hypocrite when I "complain" about lists being mostly comprised of newer songs, but then there are lists like Laz's that are just one decade. I think the difference is, he covered so much and such a long period of time over his list that really just sealed it up for me as an absolute favorite/classic.
