With the amount of backlogged tapes I have in my collection, I could potentially post a mix a week on this site and never have to make a new one again. But if I did that, were would I put that new Madonna song I've been hearing, or that idea for a jazz mix I've been mulling over for half a year? Admittedly, not everything I mix is listenable, I used to just throw songs on tapes at will as music repositories, like a handbag you put your makeup and cellphone in when you go out. I will simultaneously apologize for the appearance of the Spice Girls on this mix, since they've also appeared on my last two or three mixes; and I won't apologize for their appearance, because they're not as bad as most people make them out to be. "Who Do You Think You Are" is from the first album, but was actually released as a single in the U.S. after the "Spice World" movie came out. I normally go out of my way to avoid Everclear, because their songs are really condescending, but "Everything To Everyone" has this neat hook that sounds like a siren. Some of these are from my lounge music collection, but one in particular, "Up Came Oil", is from a collection of corporate promotional and motivational songs from the 60s and 70s. The subject matter for a song singing the praises of oil production seems downright dastardly and pompous, but aside from that, it's a really tight tune...=]'
