Stunning, Extraordinary, Incredible...I love seeing Portishead, Gainsurg, Jay-Z, and Shirley Bassey on the same mix. This moved me.

I listened, I loved, I laughed, I cried. Four and a half stars!

"God Save The Queen" is worth the price of admission by itself!

What would The Sun know huh? Class.

Yet another winner, despite the presence of a few tracks that make my skin crawl. I particularly love the Scott Walker, MBV, Beatles (of course), Shirley Bassey (SwankQueen just requested that I unearth that version for her--I hadn't heard it prior to that, but it's great), Serge, PP Arnold, Queen, and Chris Farlowe tracks. All are certainly Oscar contenders.Tracks to be buried in the nearest garbage can (that's rubbish bin to you Brits), at least IMHO, are the Bruce opener, "Maneater," "Easy Lover." :-)

absolutely adore that camera obscura track, love the beatles & jay-z & MBV, like the leonard cohen & sex pistols & queen too...gotta agree with rob on the hall & oates track though...
Date: 1/27/2008
well, I'd have to agree w/ Rob on that particular Hall & Oates song, and "Easy Lover" too, I'm afraid... but I'm starting a petition to keep "Born In the U.S.A." out of the rubbish bin, garbage can, recycling dumpster or anything else like that. it's a great song! there's really no better ditty for going 12 miles over the speed limit on the local freeway system. great picks by Human League, Shirley Bassey, Scott Walker... and I thought I was the only Cynthia Rothrock fan on this website!

I'd be quite happy for the dustbin to be left empty to be honest. I always thought Maneater sounded identical to 'Stevie Wonder's' Part Time Lover - not sure which one came first. LOVE that Jay-Z track, MBV, Portishea etc
Fine stuff..

I had forgotten that Boby Brown sang before the reality shows. Not my favorite Bruce tune but there is just something about starting with "Born in the USA" and ending with "God Save the Queen". Nicely done all aroun.

"Timecop" was one my favourite movie back in the day (I was a huge Van Damme fan!). Anything influenced by that has gots to be gold. Both sides here are fantastic.

Awesome stuff! Hey, I was about to use that Shirley Bassey version on my next romantic mix, coincidentally.
Date: 2/15/2008
Great mix! love the pic!

Poor doggy. GREAT mix.

Is the Lithuanian Lullaby/DJ Shadow track a mash-up you made yourself?
