My Mix CDs
I’ve got a lot of music but limited space to hold it in, especially in my car. So I’ve gone the old tried-and-true way of making mix CDs to have access to as many bands as possible while driving. I’m going slightly old-school since I’m a bit backwards and have no iPod.
Most of the songs will be more upbeat, with probably only the occasional ballad or slower song included. I like to sing in the car, and the more upbeat songs are more fun to sing.
I’ll be going in alpha-numeric order with these, so if you’re wanting to argue with me about what Weezer songs should be included, you’re going to be waiting for a while.
My only limitations are that I use 80 min. discs, and I’m only going to use one disc per band/artist. I will make exceptions for only my most favorite bands with huge playlists (Foo Fighters and Self, off the top of my head), but I’d really like to boil everything down to just one disc.
Here’s the list guide:
Track # - Song Name - Album Name
- Grind – Alice in Chains
- Heaven Beside You – Alice in Chains
- Again – Alice in Chains
- Over Now – Alice in Chains
- Them Bones – Dirt
- Damn That River – Dirt
- Down in a Hole – Dirt
- Sickman – Dirt
- Hate to Feel – Dirt
- Angry Chair – Dirt
- Would – Dirt
- Man in the Box – Facelift
- No Excuses – Jar of Flies
- Swing on This – Jar of Flies
- Got Me Wrong - Sap
I would probably list Alice in Chains as tied with Soundgarden for my third favorite grunge band. But that’s a distant third behind Pearl Jam and Nirvana. As such, I have very little to say about the band.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the harmonies that the group is known for. Eh. They set the band apart from other grunge counterparts in the ‘90s, but when I want to listen to grunge, I don’t want to hear stylistic harmonies.
“Would” is probably my favorite song out of the bunch. I was going to say that it was probably the best song to be included on the Singles soundtrack, but then I took a look at the song listing and realized that half the songs on there are better.
