Nice work on getting something to lead well into Eclipse, LMP.

Thanks, it was tricky. The Polyphonic Spree's "Light and Day / Reach for the Sun" almost made it - the irony between titles was an added bonus. The problem was that the gap between the two tracks was too long (4-5 seconds).

Not to rush you, but I'm gonna have to jet after your final assessment.

What Kinks song are you using here? And what S &G leads into it


I noticed the Darjeerling movie had lots of Kinks in it (I think it was Darjeerling). I like the way a lot of current movies are exposing these underexposed bands.

So, final thoughts.

I'm pretty impressed with the way you've put the tracklist together. I think it has the best flow, cohesion, and similar asteriskwtfy qualities out of any of your playlists that I've heard. I was skeptical at the start, but it quickly picked up. Great integration of a wide variety of music; never once was I sitting around thinking "where the fuck did this come from?" Well, maybe except for The Goat Song, for obvious reasons! On a personal tastes level, there was something I could enjoy in each quarter, and I probably liked the second quarter most, though I also feel favourably towards the fourth. Also a lot I didn't like, unsurprisingly, especially in the first quarter, which is definitely the weakest part of the whole thing.

Final score: B- tending B.

S&G track was Old Friends / Bookends and it led into The Kinks' Shangri-La.

Wes Anderson's a pro at that. I read that he originally wanted Beatles tunes exclusively for Darjeeling, but it would've been too expensive. I wish he could've used them in The Royal Tenenbaums, too.

S&G's "Old Friends / Bookends" going into The Kinks' "Shangri-La."

A B? Holy shit. Thanks again for taking the time out to listen to it. I really am glad that you found stuff you liked and hopefully I'll feel the same way about your list.

It'd be best if I used this for DI5 instead of the other list, you'd agree?

Excellent! Shangri-la alternates as my favorite Kinks song with Waterloo, Days, eh, many others. But the greatest la-la-la chorus of all Kinks songs

It's up there with "This Time Tomorrow," "Strangers," and "All Day and All of the Night" as one of my favorite Kinks tracks, too.

Did you like Darjeeling, btw?

No problem, I had a good time. You know what you're doing with this stuff for sure, and I think you're onto a winner with this list, especially the second and fourth quarters (not just from my own tastes, but because I think they also work the best in terms of tracklist cohesion). I think you're pretty much bordering on the highest mark I'd give to something without a stack of tracks that appeal to my personal tastes. A is for something where I love both tracks and cohesion, while B either I love the tracks and cohesion is somewhat there, or I love the cohesion and the tracks don't send me over the edge.

I don't think there's anyone left here that would appreciate this comment but:

For You live at Hammersmith f'in owns. I think it's so much better slowed down like this, and that's saying a lot since For You was already one of my top tracks.
