This time, I’ve listed music mixes people have made me over the years (and, yes, three of these are actually on real cassette tapes). I’m writing them as they appear on the actual lists they made. So many memories/nostalgia.
(I got these–Playlists A & B–from a lovely wood elf during a voyage to an alternate dimension *sigh* They’re a treasured favourite–because of the extraordinary, unusual circumstances behind them…)
Playlist A:The Cure–Plainsong Slowdive–Melon Yellow Gary Numan–Love Isolation David Bowie–Glass Spider Magnum–Only a Memory Marillon–Bridge Slowdive–Catch the Breeze Michael Jackson–Earth Song Black Lab–This Night Type O Negative–Can’t Lose You My Bloody Valentine–No More Sorry VAST–Lady of my Dreams Travis–Broken Mirror Seal–Crazy T.H.C.–Overfire Skylar Grey–Building a Monster NIN–Every Day is Exactly the Same
Playlist B:The Mission–Butterfly on a Wheel David Bowie–Kooks Slint–Washer Ozzy Osbourne–Dreamer VAST–Flames Madonna–Frozen Gary Numan–Dream Killer Black Lab–Keep Myself Awake VAST–Lost VNV Nation–Illusion
These came from an old friend who died in January, and who is hopefully on her own voyage in fantastical parallel dimensions. (I’m sorry.)The Sliced Finger Tape comp Chris & Cosey–October Love Song/Relay/Smell the Roses The Angels of Light–Angels of Light The Best of Divine–I’m so Beautiful Tubeway Army (Gary Numan)–Down in the Park Seer–Private Plane Dalek I–Dalek I love you John Foxx–Underpass Fadgadget–Ricky’s Hand P.I.L.–Pied Piper Untitled comp Shadow Project–By God Sonic Youth–Star Power Psychic TV (Pink Floyd tribute)–Set Controls for the Heart of the Sun Leather Strip–Learning to Fly Moby–Porcelain/Why does my heart feel so bad/The Sky is Broken Can–Spoon Godley & Creme–Cry
