it's nighttime all day and it's usually raining too

Artist Song
lucinda williams  sweet old world 
beck  guess i'm doing fine 
the magnetic fields  i don't believe in the sun 
sufjan stevens  flint (for the unemployed and underpaid) 
blur  no distance left to run 
black heart procession  my heart might stop 
the frames  a caution to the birds 
radiohead  bulletproof. . . i wish i was 
the verve  the drugs don't work 
slowdive  alison 
antony and the johnsons  spiralling 
u.n.k.l.e.  rabbit in your headlights 
suede  sleeping pills 
the smiths  there's a light that never goes out 
belle and sebastian  don't leave the light on baby 
the cure  homesick 
joy division  twenty-four hours 


despite the theme of this mix, i'm in a pretty good mood right now but everytime i'm upset, i want a depression mix. unfortunately, i am never in the mood to make one. it's a double edged sword in that way. so this mix is really just presupposing the bad mood i know i will be in in the future. confusing, no? there are some nice and cliched picks on here but they are familiar and cushy and make me happy despite their over arching theme of sadness (so they make me happy right now at least). transitions are pretty nice, if i do say so myself, but then again everything is pretty much the same tempo so it would have been kind of hard to have shitty transitions. also, i'm in kind of a thom yorke mood right now (which is a little odd due to the aforementioned good mood) so that's why he gets two appearances. he's just that special. good job thom. title comes from the magnetic fields song.

i really dig the magnetic fields and suede picks but that smiths song seems a bit too hopeful for a depression mix, so to speak. a fine mix overall.

I love the joy division, and slowdrive songs. Now perhaps you've jinxed yourself, you won't be depressed for awhile, just b/c you made a mix for it. :D

mmm... I like it. Not a single artist represented here that is not close to my heart. Well done.
