Mini Island Master List, Part Two

Here's the second round of Mini DI. We lost a couple of players along the way again, as expected, but still have some great stuff here. Links to follow via PM. Enjoy...

Slugs for Snitches



Well, this is the hip-hop list that I've been talking about doing for some time now. It's also the darkest list I've made thus far, which is funny, considering how content I am with my life. Some of this is painfully personal ("By Torpedo or Crohn's," I'm looking at you), and some of it isn't. My goal was to put together songs from some of the most lyrical and technically stellar rappers from the '90s and 2000s. Now, fall into the rabbit hole and breathe in deeply.

1. Frank Ocean - "Strawberry Swing" - nostalgia/ultra (3:55)
2. Mos Def - "Mathematics" - Black on Both Sides (4:06)
3. Doomtree - "No Homeowners (Renter's Rebate)" - False Hopes (3:19)
4. Eyedea & Abilities - "Now" - E&A (4:25)
5. Atmosphere - "Scapegoat" - Overcast! (3:53)
6. Wugazi - "Another Chessboxin' Argument" - 13 Chambers (3:36)
7. Dessa - "551" - False Hopes EP (3:41)
8. Sadistik - "Memento Mori" - The Balancing Act (4:39)
9. P.O.S. - "Gimme Gimme Gunshots" - Ipecac Neat (4:05)
10. Eminem - "Murder, Murder" - The Slim Shady EP (4:41)
11. Freddie Gibbs - "Fuck Rap pt. 2" - A 2Dope EP (3:57)
12. Big L - "Let 'Em Have It L" - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous (3:58)
13. 2Pac - "Untouchable Freestyle" - 2Pac Evolution (5:55)
14. CunninLynguists - "Hard as They Come (Act I)" - Oneirology (4:18)
15. Kendrick Lamar - "HiiiPower" - Section.80 (4:40)
16. Why? - "By Torpedo or Crohn's" - Alopecia (4:04)

Total runtime: 67:03

Yoda vs. Godzilla (or, it sounded a lot better in my head)

most things i think of sound a lot better in my head. this playlist is probably one of them. there's no theme, just tunes i like. there's no correlation between the title, ms paint creation posing as artwork, and songs, other than they were all assembled together bizarrely by me. there's no dropkick murphys, either.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE COLOURS

A list made entirely whilst gazing at shoes.

A list in which I commit the cardinal sin of using a live track, because I think it works.

A list with no Neil Finn, no Steven Wilson, and just two bands from New Zealand - what has happened to me?

A list that will alienate anybody who doesn't like a hearty dose of effects with their guitars.

This is the list that celebrates itself.

1. Ride - "Leave Them All Behind" - Going Blank Again (8:20)
2. Whipping Boy - "Safari" - Submarine (3:23)
3. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - "Doing All The Things That Wouldn't Make Your Parents Proud" - The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart EP (2:36)
4. Surf City - "Crazy Rulers Of The World" - Kudos (3:19)
5. Bailter Space - "Process Paid" - Vortura (3:44)
6. Kitchens Of Distinction - "What Happens Now?" - The Death Of Cool (4:33)
7. Slowdive - "When The Sun Hits" - Souvlaki (4:48)
8. Malory - "Floating" - Pearl Diver (7:18)
9. Air Formation - "Three Years Pass" - Nothing To Wish For (Nothing To Lose) (5:53)
10. Alcest - "Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde" - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (6:09)
11. Chapterhouse - "Something More" - Sunburst (3:20)
12. The Ecstacy Of Saint Theresa - "Who's" - Pigment (3:29)
13. The Joy Formidable - "Cradle" - The Big Roar (2:47)
14. Swervedriver - "You Find It Everywhere" - Mezcal Head (4:10)
15. Solar Powered People - "Melting Ice And Snow" - Living Through The Low (3:31)
16. Lilys - "Tone Bender" - In The Presence Of Nothing (3:16)
17. The Verve - "Gravity Grave" - Voyager 1 (8:20)

Total: 78:46

Saxamaphone...Saxamaphone



When I was 11 or 12 years old, I made one of the most important decisions of my life. It was time to select which instrument I was going to play in concert band the following school year. I was ready. I wanted to play drums. My mother...she wasn't so ready...she crushed my dreams. The time came to decide, and I chose the alto saxophone, begrudgingly. Before my time in Middle School began, I was required to take a summer introductory course. That was where I met my future high school band director, and I had no idea at the time that this would be a significant event in my life. In the meanwhile, I began sixth grade band, and immediately rebelled against the sax when I was to play 2nd parts, meaning I never ever played the melody, ever. But, those flutes down there, they did. So, to the flute I went, and to the flute I stayed for the next three years. I hated it, and I was awful at it, but the option to change was no longer available and I was trapped.

Then, in 8th grade, that same high school band director came to recruit people for marching band, and I saw my in. He allowed me to switch back to saxophone for marching band only, and in concert band I soon found my way to the bassoon, and the flute became a dark, distant memory.

I could continue to go on about how much the saxophone changed my life (and marching band as well), but suffice it to say that if I had been forced to stay on that flute, I would, in all likelihood, have eventually given up on band, and my life would be an incredibly different thing. I say that knowing a lot more than you about that change, I realize, but trust me on this one.

Anyways, during college, I finally became a fan of Bruce Springsteen, and while my time playing the sax was nearing a close, my love for the instrument only grew and grew. It was just as I was becoming a great fan of Dave Matthews, and more specifically, LeRoi Moore, that he passed away. I was devastated, as I had passed on an opportunity to see the band just that year, and realized the opportunity to see one of the greatest around would never exist for me from then on. Now, as the recent passing of Clarence Clemons becomes a fact of life that I am beginning to be able to deal with, I find that the saxophone is suddenly making a come back in popular music, and I couldn't be more pleased. I just hope that its inevitable fall back to cliche isn't too painful.

In the meanwhile, I figured a list of some of my favorite saxophone pop music would be something fun for, at least me, to listen to. I hope you also enjoy. I know some of the transitions are a bit wonky, but I was working with limited time (I'm referring to the 80 minutes, not the month I've spent putting this list together), and a great many different genres.

I especially hope you enjoy the transition from "Soul Man" to "Shotgun".

Well, I think I've said enough, please do have a splendid time listening, and know that when I hear this list, my heart does indeed, near literally, soar.

Track Listing:

1.) Marc Shaiman - "Nuns to the Rescue" - Sister Act (4:48)
2.) The Blues Brothers - "Soul Man" - Briefcase Full of Blues (3:03)
3.) Jr. Walker & The All Stars - "Shotgun" - Now That's What I Call Motown (3:19)
4.) Fontella Bass - "Rescue Me" - The New Look
5.) Dave Matthews Band - "Grey Street" - Busted Stuff (5:08)
6.) Men At Work - "Overkill" - Cargo (3:45)
7.) Roxy Music - "Same Old Scene" - Flesh + Blood (3:59)
8.) The Cure - "A Night Like This" - The Head on the Door (4:16)
9.) Eddie Money - "Take Me Home Tonight" - Greatest Hits (3:32)
10.) Gerry Rafferty - "Baker Street" - City to City (6:01)
11.) Al Stewart - "Year of the Cat" - Year of the Cat (6:34)
12.) Peter Gabriel - "Start" - Peter Gabriel III (1:21)
13.) Cunninlynguists - "Stars Shine Brightest (In the Darkest of Night)" - Oneirology (4:03)
14.) Destroyer - "Suicide Demo For Kara Walker" - Kaputt (8:26)
15.) Tears for Fears - "The Working Hour" - Songs From the Big Chair (6:32)

I've got two more to go with Part One, and then I'll hit these up.

Oh My God, I completely forgot until just now what my cover art was supposed to be. Travis just reminded me...I may need an edit if you're around

 
this one please.

(Holy shit, I didn't realize my write up was that long)

IWB, Ice of Boston > Abel elicited honest to God applause from Travis and me.

Ax, I, too, used a live track, because I didn't have much of a choice

After seeing IWB's list, I'm immediately curious about two things.

1. How Glee will transition into Rush

2. How "Abel" sounds as a closer

Can't wait to find out!

Wow, these four lists could hardly come from more different places.

Oh dear, Ashley, I'm often a bit prejudiced against the saxophone, or for that matter any wind instrument. But then you DO have one of my favourite Cure songs there, so we'll see how I go.

Joey, your point #1 is something I never wanted answered! Who knew Glee would be so hard to avoid.

And anybody familiar with Chapterhouse, that version of Something More in my list is quite different to the one found on Whirlpool - and according to the band it's how they wanted it to sound. Hope you enjoy.

oddly enough, despite this being my list, i didn't really want to know either. it probably transitions incredibly poorly in the ears of people who aren't me, and i think you're actually supposed to hate the idea with every ounce of your being. i think i was trying to commit some musical crimes or something here.

There not being text in the speech bubble was what probably made me laugh the hardest, so I'm glad you forgot .


As for my list, I felt it was one of those "I really need to do this for myself" kind of lists. So, no, I don't expect it to be the most popular, but hopefully everyone will find something to enjoy. Especially "A Night Like This"

If the full DI results in double the Glee we received this time, I'm done. Honest.

I'm sad that its' the Glee version of "Defying Gravity" and not the original.

No matter how you slice it, it's still a Broadway song. But this is a Broadway song I happen to like.

I hate Glee. And I'm not referencing Community there, I truly hate it with every fibre of my being.

Disappointed there's no Floyd tracks on your sax list, 212121212121212, but maybe you aren't a fan. Looks delish.

The reason? Because if these are the only options, I didn't even realize there were solos because 1) I don't know the song or B) I don't like the song or III) The song is SOYCD and is too long for the list.

And hey, I'll take all the recommendations I can get for stuff I may have left off/didn't know. I can always add to this playlist later, since, as I said, this is one of my favorite lists of mine, period.
