Took me a while to come up with the songs for this gimmick mix. A collection of music that either pays homage to or insults other artists. My main criteria was that the name of the subject being honored (or slammed) had to be in the song's title. I was surprised at how much I was able to come up with. (That Brainwarmer song is almost too twee for me, but the lyrics crack me up: "It makes me crazy/Wanna have its baby/Elliot Smith's guitar".) Some songs that didn't make the mix, among others: YFF, "Hank, Karen, and Elvis"; Toots & the Maytals, "Desmond Dekker Came First"; Talulah Gosh, "Pastels Badge"; Dandy Warhols, "Cool as Kim Deal".
