Greeblemix for the Music Mamas… Naturally

What is the FIRST thing I would do after The Music Mamas asked me to join their group? Make them a music mix CD of a bunch of my most favorite songs from recent Greeblemix giveawaysOF COURSE.

See, I was always the mix-maker. Back in high school I did it on tape. Meticulously, rewind, forward, rewind, forward – to find the perfect intro song, have the perfect timing between songs, have the songs flow, and have meaning.

Yes, I was John Cusack in High Fidelity. Yes, I was Rob Sheffield in Love Is A Mix Tape. (P.S. If you have not read that book, RUN to your book delivery system of choice and get it).

I have mellowed with age, and you probably won’t find me standing outside some boy’s door holding a boombox to the sky with “In Your Eyes” blaring. Anymore. But I still. love. mixing. music. CDs.

Which is why I started doing it on my blog, and why the first thing I did when I joined this group was give them a taste of one.

Here is the CD these ladies received.

    I am all about a mix tape giveaway. And if you’re doing a giveaway on this one, I totally want my name in there. High Fidelity is my all time favorite not quite a chick flick … I too totally identify with John Cusak in that movie.
    My latest mixes include Cut Chemist, My Morning Jacket and The Donnas (the funky mix) and Rancid, Hole and Linkin Park (the hard mix).

    Interesting looking Mixtape, Aimee. I could clearly learn lots here (I only recognized 3)

    Lately when CD shopping, I usually go for ’2 new’ and ’1 old’ (I’m a record store addict and plan my trips… )

    I throw them into a playlist called “recent adds” on my iPod and usually take off some older things.

    of the more recent… Blitzen Trapper, Freelance Whales, SSPU, Free Energy, The Black Keys, Citizen Cope

    *hangs head in shame*

    the ‘old’ I’ve been listening to most lately is Rush’s Moving Pictures… I so loved rush when it was the 70′s… then i was waaaay too cool for them in the 80′s… then I forgot about them altogether… I blame Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights for this renewed love…

    …the classic radio station in town has been playing them (jtnl) so I’ve been listening… and hearing a lot of Rush while waiting…

    Know how I know we’re kindred spirits? I have two thirds of these on my iPod right now. ;) (And, when I popped the Greeblemix into the car CD player, Liam recognized “The Bear Minus Song!!”)

    Love it – and so glad you’re onboard. Yay!

    Love the mix! Thanks so much! I’ve been blasting it on my stereo while rearranging my furniture this last week or two. Keeps me moving …
