Comment:

Don't you hate rejection? And don't you hate it when all your best friends are out of town and there's no-one to talk to? What better way to get it all out than to make a tape of music that expressed exactly how I was feeling. That was basically my only criterion for choosing songs.

Side A is mainly songs I find dark, passionate and beautiful (with a much-needed needed hint of joy at "Angel of Harlem"). By "Unfinished Sympathy" I was starting to feel less depressed - and then I just started feeling angry at myself. So Side B is a bit more torturous (although its starts off fairly fun).

I played this in the car with some friends recently. By "Tomorrow Wendy" they were saying they wanted to kill themselves. I felt proud.

(Sorry for all the detail - I just have really distinctive memories of choosing each and every song on the tape. It was intense 90 minutes.)

Um, "Burn To Shine" is by Ben Harper, not Ben Lee, isn't it? The Whitlams tune is a good one, and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is a really inspired choice.
