A nonsense name for a nonsense mix, ended up with a lot more Steely Dan and Flaming Lips than I'd planned... but that's how it worked out.

Okay I had a friggin defective tape!! argh. So I only have 110min ones left... thus the additions and the end of both sides. 10 extra minutes per side. It's DREAMY to an old school 90min tape mixer like myself... I was sorely tempted to change out "The Magician vs. The Headache" to the string quartet version, but that will go on another mix... now the title makes more sense, with the cheery songs battling the nihilistic stuff like the Disturbed track, and the delectable mockery in "Common People."

How are the Righteous Brothers like the Holy Roman Empire? The Holy Roman Empire was neither Holy, Roman, nor an Empire. The Righteous Brothers are neither righteous nor brothers. My high school boyfriend, one in the "Steve" series, made up that joke. I'm not so fond of Steely Dan, either, but they work well judiciously used.

Especially loving the Black 47 track.

"Hey, chuckle***k, you just showed us that
mix!" (Sorry, I had to say it since nobody else did!)I'm with the Swede on this one: I like Steely Dan, too! And this mix looks fine!

So cool - I'm sorry I'm so late in getting to this one. Very random but works marvellously - I'm not the biggest Flaming Lips fan in the world, but they definitely work here, and I love your Vangelis inclusion!!
