Sorry for the delay lads and llama.

Made a change on my list. Out went "When You Sleep" in came "Lover, you Should’ve Come Over". It broke my heart leaving that track out but I needed a little more soul on my tape.

1.  Just Like Heaven - The Cure
2. Cannonball - The Breeders
3. (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding
4. Lola - The Kinks
5. Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush
6. Bastards Of Young - The Replacements
7. Juxtapozed With U - Super Furry Animals
8. Lover, You Should've Come Over - Jeff Buckley
9. Y Control - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
10. A Day In The Life - The Beatles

Oh, the almost made its?

Prince and the Revolution - Let's Go Crazy
Jane's Addiction - Ocean Size
Azealia Banks - 212 (back when we needed a one hit wonder)
Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture (with cannons - is there anything more metal?)

Could've been very different though, I reckon if I had to do another one it would be a completely different vibe.

Could've been very different though, I reckon if I had to do another one it would be a completely different vibe.

I had The 1812 ready to go. When that coup happened in Russia and Boris Yeltsin was standing on tanks, for like a few days nobody knew who had control of Russias nukes and it was dead frightening for everyone. At the height of all the freaking out around midnight one night i put my speakers on the balcony of my flat and blasted the 'ture on 11 to the whole neighborhood. I just felt reassured , that no country that could produce music like that could possibly be stupid enough to kill us all by mistake.

It made me feel better, not sure about the neighbors, but no-one complained.  ;D

I considered this one too, i still say the phrase when im under heavy stress it calms me to this day.

Christ Almighty, this is a big time absolutely fantastic groupings here.   Just listened to Djozer's and its is absolute class.   Have some experience with Chakan's list already, and I am bowled over all the same.  Cannot wait to get into the others.  Such fun!

Make sure to check out Djozer's though lads, have a listen of how they flow together --- different genres, but powerful tunes.  Well out Llama.  Quit your day job, you could be the Mix-tape specialist for RAWK!

Cheers, you. All these mixes are good, and I'm being exposed to stuff I've never listened to before, which is always a good and worthy experience. Hard to choose really. Trying to quickly listen to the songs I've never heard in draft one to decide before the deadline.

Yeah, there's probably no need for a draft, everyone just pick songs they like and leave the voting open for longer.

Disagree really a mix tape can be anything. Driving, party, love songs, songs that lift the spirit. Anything really.

Cheers, it's what I first thought of when given the brief. I must say though I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the mixtapes and as you can see from my selections a lot of the music has been different to my own tastes but I've come across a good few belters that'll be listening to again and again. That's what this was all about I suppose, so thanks everyone.

Ashamed to say I'd never listened to Eleanor Rigby or Papa Was a Rolling Stone in the past but i'll be adding them to my library. It was between yourself and DeFacto for me, I went with Defacto as there was a few more songs I could relate to and I knew you'd be storming in to the semi finals anyway. All round great mixtape. Had me reading about Amy Winehouse on Wikipedia for a bit last night too, such a sad story.

Breaks your heart about Amy with that voice, Jesus. A modern day Billy Holiday. It was tough all round. Had a blast listening to them all. Ding, ding, round 2. Just gonna get a couple in tonight and rocking tomorrow, walikng the dog, before and after the game.

Breaks your heart about Amy with that voice, Jesus. A modern day Billy Holiday. It was tough all round. Had a blast listening to them all. Ding, ding, round 2. Just gonna get a couple in tonight and rocking tomorrow, walikng the dog, before and after the game.

Yeah terrible shame, you'd have thought she could only get better too. Going to listen to them tomorrow while the Mancs play Chelsea, will brighten up my morning some bit.
So bloody what? If you watch football to be absolutely miserable then go watch cricket.

The only celeb death that really affected me. I saw her life at Glastonbury, stunning when singing, a shambling mess between songs. I still struggle to listen to her.

Had a blast both compiling and listening to all which I did, skipping a few tracks if I'm honest but each mix had something to surprise and delight so well done all and good luck to all in the final. Can't wait for the female vocals draft....

Its not easy, being Green

Sob.

 ok im better now.  ;D Thats a magic song real magic like a mom's kiss on a scraped knee.


Must say, i voted for SDDL because looking at his playlist i had barely heard of most of the bands and i didn't recognize a single song by name, although i knew a few of them when i heard them, so its safe to say that likely i would never have played any of those tunes by myself unprompted, and yet i really loved the whole thing  i enjoyed it from start to finish it was great. Im dangerous--Music-ally speaking  ;D awesome  even the old school ska tune.

 i just found that to be pretty cool experience well in bro.

On to the final my votes completely unbiased for sale go ahead, make me an offer
Damn that Mane's good!
