August 2011 Mix -- No _________

  • August 2011 Mix -- No _________

    Howdy everybody!

    Thanks everyone for giving me a few days to help sort out some delinquencies and whatnot around here and for getting those extra votes in for this month's theme. We've now avoided another tie and have a clear-cut winner. So, why don't we get right to it?

    I Was Holding It for a Friend, I Swear! 13 31%
    Holy Hell, That's Hot! 12 29%
    No __________ Allowed! 16 38%

    So with that, your theme this month is No ________ Allowed!

    Pretty self-explanatory, and definitely lots of different directions you could go with this one, so hopefully some of you grumblepants nonplussed with July's theme will be mollified. ;)

  • This is my mix for not0your0nerd. I did what I guess would be the obvious move and chose song titles that could be inserted into the blank (No __________ Allowed!). The transition from Sublime to the Velvet Underground is a little strange...

    I am afraid my theme will be "No partner" OR "No response" :(

    ♫ the music's never loud enough ♫
  • @ Knirrie - make the mix for yourself, just like I did..... still .... who knows? I might yet get a reply/reply mix from my mixpartner ...

  • Do not despair! My mix is here!

    That doesn't quite rhyme...

    I went with a different twist on a No Boys Allowed theme and made a mix of all female artists or female-fronted bands. Hope you enjoy!


    1. Give Him A Great Big Kiss
    2. I Only Want To Be With You
    3. Angry Angel
    4. Connection
    5. TKO
    6. The Day The World Turned Day-Glo
    7. Suzanne And I
    8. Knight Of Wands
    9. This Tornado Loves You
    10. 23
    11. Telephone
    12. State Fair
    13. Mean Mean Man
    14. Psychobitches Outta Hell
    15. Je Veux Te Voir
    16. Iceblink Luck
    17. Let's Get Out of This Country
    18. What Else Is There? (not a female fronted band, but Karin Dreijer of The Knife sings on this track.)
    19. You Know What I Mean

    "Why, sometimes I've believed six impossible things before breakfast."
  • Here' my mix for cthulubelle. I started off with a terribly over-ambitious project that really had nothing to do with the theme at hand, realized I was setting myself up for a beast and scaled back. WAY back. And then I thought of some awesome themes I won't mention in case somebody's actually working on it (not at all likely, but they're so left-field, if you ARE, I'd totally ruin it by mentioning), but I won't have time to explore. C'est la vie.

    You may get it here:

    I hate using megaupload because they like to flash ads for their porn service while you download, so apologies for having to go that route. Mediafire kept failing all my uploads, it's too big for YSI, and rapidshare got all skronky, too. Believe me when I say megaupload is a last resort. You COULD also stream this on spotify, which this link will hopefully take you to:

  • Hey, all.

    This here's my mix for our esteemed leader Poppycrock. It's been a lousy couple of months, so I tried to come up with a positive spin on a "negative" theme. Best of all, it gave me the opportunity to do a cheesy homage to a venerable music logo. Sorry -- this one was just too good to pass up.

    As for the mix itself, it's a pretty eclectic bunch of tunes. It starts off peppy, with a creamy post-rock center and a long kraut-rock finish.

    No Nos

    01. You Yes You, tUnE-yArDs
    02. Price Yeah!, Pavement
    03. Back to the Fuck Yeah, Pulled Apart By Horses
    04. Hell Yes, Beck
    05. Sir, Yes Sir, Tomahawk
    06. Say Yes, Elliott Smith
    07. Yes! I Am A Long Way From Home, Mogwai
    08. Yes, What's Up
    09. Yes Jazz Cactus, Plagal Grind
    10. Yes, Pleas, M. Pyres
    11. Screw Yeah, Winning
    12. "Yeah" Is What We Had, Grandaddy
    13. Yeah We Know, Dinosaur Jr.
    14. Oh Yeah, Can
    15. Oh Yeah, Oh No, Add N To (X)

    Hope you enjoy. See you next month!

    No English allowed

    My mix for cuty91. It is a long shot, but I listen a lot to music in other languages than English. The song by Claudia Koreck is in Bavarian dialect, De Kast sings in Friesian and Skik's song is in a Dutch dialect. Have fun :)

    Come and get it!

    ♫ the music's never loud enough ♫

    No Boys Allowed

    Hah! Figured I wouldn't be alone with that take on the theme. Fortunately, we're doing it slightly different.

    I call my mix "No Boys Allowed (by the microphone)", or "Girls' Night Out".

    1. The Creatures - Standing There
    2. Sound of the Blue Heart - River of Love
    3. Cults - Walk at Night
    4. The Limiñanas - Down Underground
    5. Boris - Spoon
    6. Electrelane - Saturday
    7. Stina Nordenstam - People Are Strange (UNKLE remix)
    8. Lykke Li - Get Some
    9. The Knife - Girls Night Out
    10. Pomplamoose - Beat It
    11. The Postmarks - No One Said This Would Be Easy
    12. Dessa - Dixon's Girl
    13. Róisín Murphy - Night of the Dancing Flame
    14. Little Dragon - Nightlight
    15. Sneaker Pimps - Low Place Like Home
    16. Janelle Monáe - Come Alive (The War of the Roses)
    17. Siouxsie and The Banshees - Something Wicked (This Way Comes)

    It can be downloaded here:

    Not to beat my own drum, but if you have enjoyed any of my mixes in the past, give this one a shot. I think it's one of the better ones I've made in quite a while. If nothing else I enjoyed putting it together.

    Now I just hope my mix partner comes out of hiding.
    Edit: Oh. Just noticed he left the group a week ago. Yippee.

  • alright alright alright alright alright.

    sooooooo, i spent a number of days mistakenly thinking that the theme was "no nos allowed", which doesn't really make sense to me either. but my mix is a "no negativity allowed" but i took it to the extreme so my mix is called "only positivity allowed" and i didn't include any songs that had words like "no" or "not" or "never" in the title, even if it had a positive message. i considered making the mix be really positive titles but really negative song content, but in the end just made it a (mostly) really positive mix overall.

    1. Say Hey (I Love You) - michael franti & spearhead
    2. Better Than Anything Ever - paul baribeau
    3. Celebrate - bleach
    4. Guess How Much I Love You - the lucksmiths
    5. The Right Place - monsters of folk
    6. She's So Lovely - the butchies
    7. Best Friend - 50 cent
    8. Darling, I Love You - andrew jackson jihad
    9. Best Of All Possible Worlds - the little willies
    10. Endless Entertainment - bright eyes
    11. I Believe In You - yacht

    Don't Don't Don't

  • My last minute mix for oz_tokyoeyes. I don't know if this is a recurring theme, a looming mid-life crisis, or a cry for help from a parent of 2 small girls, but the first idea I had that stuck was: "No Grownups Allowed."

    Another bizarre cross-generational collision, plus another version vs. version mash by me. Could've spent more time on that but did I mention the 2 small girls?

    01. Stevie Wonder: I Wish
    02. Chase: Boys & Girls Together
    03. T-Rex: Children of the Revolution
    04. Story of the Year: Let the Children Sing
    05. Airship: Kids
    06. Black Lips: Bad Kids
    07. Bruce McCulloch: Grade 8
    08. Mr. Oizo: Let the Children Techno
    09. Architecture in Helsinki: Same Old Innocence
    10. Amy MacDonald: Youth of Today
    11. Karen O and the Kids: All Is Love
    12. Two Door Cinema Club: Kids
    13. Chiddy Bang: Opposite of Adults
