Does that exist?

I have an odd way of making a playlist. I can feel a place coming alive and sometimes that place is actually person. During this time period of making a playlist, I can feel certain moods or sounds starting to add up to something. I sort of have to figure out who or where this place is and more importantly where it is going. Suddenly, it all makes sense and playlist reveals itself. It is a process of creating a conduit into that place through your own emotions and the emotions of the songs and artists you use.

My regular karaoke haunt has "Creep" on the list. I would be surprised if there were any other Radiohead songs anyone would get up and sing in front of a crowd.

That shit is deep.

I loved your list, it hits all of the flow/mood stuff perfectly, but it's a little too down for me.

It's like the Schindler's List of playlists. Sure it's fucking amazing, but I don't have it in me to watch it all the time, you know?

I have four songs with place names in them, but no Baltimore. If I would've had to choose a Baltimore song, it would've been Counting Crows' Raining in Baltimore, but lately I've started to realize I should be embarrassed that I own so many Counting Crows albums.

Here's how I make a playlist, or, rather, playlist making for dummies:

1. Take an inventory of what music you own or have on your computer.

2. In alphabetical order, pick one song from each artist.

3. Put them in a row and start removing the songs you don't care much for until you get it down to 2 hours and 40 minutes.

4. Put the songs you have in a proper order.

The end.

How about "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora?



I have 3 Counting Crows albums. I don't like them consistently and often want to punch Adam Duritz in the throat to make him stop whining/singing, but there's at least one song I really love on each of the albums I own.

I think I own them all, except for the greatest hits one. The live album was really unnecessary except for the hidden track on the unplugged disc. Of the others, there's probably enough for two full albums of great songs, and a lot of leftover songs about Adam Duritz's inability to sleep.

I took the "pick songs that show who you are" kind of idea and ran with it as a starting point for my list. It was easy to pick songs I loved, but wanted to put them into a kind of cohesive order that would show different aspects of my personality.

Okay, not so much my personality, but the many moods of Alicia. Or something.

Remember what I said about Twin Peaks and how what made it great was that you couldn't watch it over and over? That really describes my playlist.

I know I must come off like a moody gothic kid but in actually I'm a shy midwestern teenager whose only black clothing consists of trackjackets and a Roger Waters tour t-shirt.

Actually, I'd prefer Radiohead karaoke tracks to the real deal as it's Yorke's strangled cat vocals that piss me off most about Radiohead.

I believe you.

I have all of Twin Peaks series (including the Pilot) on my computer, ready to watch, by the way.

Good. The first hour of the pilot is one of the most emotional moments in television history.

And his voice has only gotten more annoying over the years.

I'm a big fan, but I must admit that Thom hasn't had a really great voice since 1999 or so.
