Smash hits of the '80s, '90s and today, with a few earlier detours--another mix made for my friend Brian. The Go-Betweens' "Cattle and Cane" would have been included if not for time constraints. A sidenote: at this point, with Conor Oberst songs appearing on more than a third of my posted mixes, there is probably no way for me to continue denying that I like Bright Eyes. Conor may tap into some subterranean drama-queen-with-a-thesaurus tendencies in me that I'm not entirely comfortable with, but sometimes that's what's needed.
