That seems to be a mega-bopatational concoction, ... no "Pump Up the Volume" I notice ... I assume it is available on standby, ready to spin around about midnight :-)

Rich Tee said...

There is a Bruce Springsteen track in there and it's not even one of the girly ones (like Philadelphia).

Mark Wadsworth said...

BE, I'll give it another 50 minutes.

RT, "Born to run" is totally girly.

Woodsy42 said...

Bit short of Captain Beefheat isn't it? Mind you 'her indoors' here would probably have non-stop Tom Petty

Leg-iron said...

Next door wench, while drinking with, said 'Right, let's test your musical taste. You choose the songs'.

I was gentle.

Captain Beefheart 'Electricity'
Blue Oyster Cult 'Astronomy'
Tenacious D 'Kielbasa'

At which point I had no further control over music selection.

I had not even started on underdog songs, of which there has been an explosion lately.

Women. Huh.

Pavlov's Cat said...

dear of dear oh dear , there are a few nuggets in there but it looks like it sounds awful.
and the Winehouse version of Valerie as well, when the original is far and away superior. and Kid Rock I'd rather put my eardrums out

The Stigler said...

Not even much of a party mix. Gotye? Some slow Oasis?

At least get Groove is in the Heart in there.

Mark Wadsworth said...

W42, I quite like Tom Petty actually. It's nice and summery.

LI, that's a bit extreme, even for me.

PC, I really like "All Summer Long" that would have been on my party CD as well.

TS, yes, Groove is in the heart is a proper party song.
Did nobody notice that she actually chose three songs twice? What's the point of that?

Being of a an older, but not necessarily wiser, generation I have found the Marmite gender differentiaters to be Screaming Jay Hawkins (anything) and ,for some reason, Gene Vincent.
