Decent and satisfying. The Squarepusher remix of "Red Hot Car" is unbelievably catchy with lyrics like "I'm gonna fuck you in my red hot car". Pop music at its best (worst?). This mix puts me in the 'anything can happen now, and it doesn't matter to me' mode. Kinda' like music induced apathy without the lethargic tendencies I usually exhibit. I recetly found Tim Love Lee on epitonic.com, and it is fairly cool, only wish I'd knew of it before, it would have made for some good tracks on other mixes. The AIR track is of course from the new album (10,000 MHz). Bach is just classic, had to put it in... Comments welcome.

good cd.listen closely to the squarepusher song..you'll hear that the lyrics are quite a bit dirtier than that.

Oh, I know. The cool thing about the 'Girl mix' is that they are actually decipherable, the album version has it chopped up.

Well, when the lead-singer to Blur creates a side project as good as Gorillaz, the result becomes a great song like "Clint Eastwood". I couldn't bare not to put it on this mix. It's constantly in my head.

What Hooha MEANS to say is that "Clint Eastwood" appears in 13 mixes on this site (out of 11, 820 total mixes--or less than .001%). But Hooha is a doofus so he says it's on "everybody's mix." Great job, btw. Keep up the good work, John !!

Even if it was on everybody's list: Popularity does not negate what I choose for a mix. I don't and make my playlists/cds/tapes and think, oh, fuck someone else used The Clash's "Lost in the Supermarket" last week, I can't use that (although it is probably one of the all-time greatest songs ever recorded). It doesn't work like that. If it did, the caliber of mixes on this site would drastically drop. I just happened to use it, because it was the only thing I could find suitable that matched the style and could follow-up "Christiansands" by Tricky. Hooha, you make some really good mixes, but that deson't give you god-like critic status.

Wow...John Olson. I said a few words and all the sudden I'm giving you a bad review on your mix? I was making a comment about the song, not of your mix. I never said I had god-like status on anything and oh I'm not a math geek like "doh" so sorry for not saying the exact number of Clint Eastwood posts. Sue me. Btw...I like the song and I found out about it here and I was gonna thank you all but I guess I won't now since you like to exaggerate everything I say.
