Comment:

a mix of songs inspired by/about Minnesota and its best city, Minneapolis. A disc i will be listening to as I make the move to Minneapolis! I may not like all these artists, but hey, I found 23 songs about Minneapolis, what can I say? :) Almost put the sigurros tune they wrote in minneapolis on, but didnt.. wanted to stick with songs that had MINNEAPOLIS or MINNESOTA in their title. Alright. fun stuff, doncha know! youuuuu betcha! and no, whilenot everyone from the twin cities talks like that, my mom sure as hell does.. :)

Funny, I was actually thinking of doing a Minneapolis themed mix too, with a combination of local stuff and songs mentioning the town. I like the picture too, and hopefully you'll enjoy it here. You're certainly coming at the right time; it's supposed to hit 85 tomorrow. The winters get long, but when spring finally comes, nothing beats it.

man, i love minneapolis!! Adam - I go there a couple times a year, to see my boys play some good football. I was supposed to be there 2 years ago, but it wasn't happening.. finally though! I can't wait... you live in the city? I can't believe someone else was going to do a mpls-theme! It was hard thinking about whether i was going to do local stuff (down to LOW and DEAD MILKMEN) or keep it to the MPLS/MN name in the title... you should do one of local stuff -- some Blind Dog, Low, Aim Baby, Live in Japan, The Heed.. even go down to Soul Asylum / Jayhawks / Replacements man! There's a buncha good music in Mpls.. and such a fuckin beautiful city!!!

Hey dude... Congrats on moving here, and good luck surviving the winters.. And the summers. As I see it.. Its either far too hot or far too cold.. but.. sometimes its nice. Right now its 75 degrees at 930pm.. A Rare night in April
Anyways.. Minneapolis has THE BEST music hands down of any city in the country, I hope you get to enjoy some of it... Maybe I'll make you a mix.. ^_~

well K2 -- you should make me a mix :) show me some of that Midwestern Hospitality :) Actually, im moving out from Boston (in pittsburgh for a breif 7 months),so im used to the cold cold temps and snow, and I frequent Mpls in the wintertime, but this winter was pretty bland, not too much snow... i love the city though,normally get a nice fat helping of the white stuff .. and the music kicks ass...

Whoa! You forgot the theme from the Mary Tyler Moore Show ("Love is All Around"). The original was by Sonny Curtis, and Husker Du did a cover. Of course,
it doesn't actually SAY Minnesota or Minneapolis in the song, but its still the song alot of us think about when someone says Minneapolis.

I know, the songs are HORRIBLE. I don't really listen to ANY of the artists except for Moutain Goats, Pushstars, Led Zepplin and Tom Waits.. It was just fun to make a mix with the word MINNEAPOLIS or MINNESOTA in their title. I found after this little project that more people than you'd imagine would write about the coolest city or state. crazy. Plus mitch hedberg hails from MN!
