A compendium to the fabulous television show, "Freaks & Geeks." My friends and I recently held a Freaks & Geeks marathon in which all 18 epsiodes were shown in a row. Candy was eaten, shots were downed, headaches & wooziness appeared. I made this cd the next week and sent out copies to all the die hards who made it through all 18 episodes, shown from 2 pm to 6 am the next day. If you have not seen the show, I pity you. It is without a doubt the greatest show I have ever seen and perfectly captures the late 70's/early 80's high school vibe and the world of the outcasts and nerds. I put a song on from every epsiode, in order, as a sort of soundtrack for the series. Two regrets - the inclusion on the Amboy Dukes over XTC's "No Language in our Lungs" and not being able to include "Rosalinda's Eyes."

It was indeed a great show. And this is quite the cool mix, Mr. Paquette.

FREAKS AND GEEKS WAS THE GREATEST TELEVISION SHOW EVER. It is criminal, CRIMINAL I tell ya, that it was canceled. What a boss idea for a mix! I think I loved that show so much because I was the exact age of Sam at that period of my life - the trials he and his friends experienced largely mirrored my own. Tragic, I know. God, I miss that show. I guess they had to cancel it to make room for another ridiculous "reality show". F&G was the greatest reality show ever. OK, enough yapping. Well done.

if you guys liked it, then it must be good! Unfortunately here in Hicksville, UK, we don't get it. I like the music in this mix, though
