Comment:

For That Girl (TM), the Queen of my world. The Rheostatics are included by her request, although that's not her name (nor is it Felicity, for that matter). Thanks to joey de vivre for the Raymond Scott track and to SwankQueen for hipping me to said track. Title by Edwyn Collins.

Cool. I get to be the first one to comment...this looks absolutely lovely and all that good stuff. I couldn't be happier for you, my friend. Love that Spacemen 3 track a bunch (among many others on here).

Looks like a pleasant mood piece, to my ears anyways. Few things can make a mix happier than a Raymond Scott track. I never knew that The Doors covered that Beat Happening song.

uh oh, it's that elusive rob conroy romantic mix that crawls out of the woodworks every now & then -- looks wonderful as usual, but the VU, lennon, tom waits (orphans is great, by the way), big star, pixies & smokey robinson are really making this work for me.

There oughtta be a law that simply playing "My Life Is Right" for someone guarantees their eternal devotion. Actually, maybe there is; I haven't checked.

Another lovely, makes-you-feel-all-warm-and-fuzzy-inside mix :) Mr. Kulcher is pretty much spot on with the Big Star comment, and I love the John Lennon too. Great work again.

terrific, Mr. Conroy. Aztec Camera, Smokey Robinson, Style Council, Tom Waits and Pixies all make some of my favorite sounds.
