A tribute to Everybody Hates Chris and its music. No I'm not some UPN hack pumping up the show. Just a fan. The show is only five episodes in so this may be a bit premature, but the music in the show mirrors my current interests. The show is set in Brooklyn in 1982, and there's lots of electro, funk, rap, quiet storm r&b/soul and chart pop setting the scene.
I've used one song from every episode. I could have filled the entire mix with great songs from the show, but thought I'd add my own picks from the 1978 to 1984 era instead. The only songs outside this era were ones used on the show - the oddest choice was the Mint Condition song from 1991 (selective memory maybe?). Other songs were chosen to match the themes of each episode. Between every song there's a clip from the show.
Songs from the show. Episode 1: Kool & the Gang - "Get Down On It" Episode 2: Mint Condition - "Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)" Episode 3: Evelyn Champagne King - "I'm In Love" Episode 4: Biz Markie - "Vapors", Stevie Wonder - "My Cherie Amour" (only used the break, don't worry.the song, as a whole, grates on me) Episode 5: Newcleus - "Jam On It"
The mix is available via megaupload by clicking on the first or last song.
