    Your music mixes

    I've made a bunch of CD compilations, mostly when I first got my own computer with a CD burner in it. I'm going to be visiting my dad for Easter and want to make a CD (or a few of them) to listen to in the car on the way there and back. I'm thinking of going old school and making a compilation of songs that were on the radio when I was in elementary school--Air Supply, Hall & Oates, Olivia Newton-John, the Bee-Gees, ELO, etc.

    What are some of the CD compilations you've made?

    One of my favorite compilations I did was of soft rock. I called it Smooth Favorites. Here is the track list:

    1. It Don't Hurt To Dream/Sylvia
    2. Who's Holding Donna Now/DeBarge
    3. Cherish/Kool & the Gang
    4. Shining Star/The Manhattans
    5. Biggest Part of Me/Ambrosia
    6. The One You Love/Glenn Frey
    7. Little Jeanie/Elton John
    8. Just the Way You Are/Billy Joel
    9. Foolish Heart/Steve Perry
    10. Sharing the Night Together/Dr. Hook
    11. All Night Rain/Atlanta Rhythym Section
    12. Torn Between Two Lovers/Mary MacGregor
    13. It's Sad to Belong/England Dan & John Ford Coley
    14. More Than I Can Say/Leo Sayer
    15. Deacon Blues/Steely Dan
    16. Baby Come Back/Player
    17. Best of My Love/The Eagles

    Re: Your music mixes

    A few years back I went through all my CDs and copied my favorite songs from each CD on my laptop as a 'favorites playlist'. Then I transferred the playlist onto my iPhone and iPad and can listen with ear buds or by blue tooth in my car. It's an eclectic list with mostly R&B, but also some Dixie Chicks, Bocceli, Annie Lennox, etc. and Rock all mixed up and played in random order. I used to make my own CD mixes, but this is so much easier to carry around with me.
    “It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character.” — Joseph Heller, Catch-22

    Re: Your music mixes

    I have everything by One Direction on my MP3 player. I also have Taylor Swift and the songs from Empire, Season One and a bunch of other stuff you guys might not know. But when I go to the gym to workout, I tend to go for the really fast pace, get-your-heart-racing ‘old school’ songs my parents listen to. And don’t worry, Pikachu. My track names are even less inventive.

    This one I call “Workout Songs 1.” (It’s for when I’m pressed for time).

    The Heat Is On/Glenn Frey
    Easy Lover / Phil Collins
    Livin Thing / ELO
    Fighter / Christina Aguilera
    I Kissed A Girl / Katy Perry
    Yeah / Usher
    Bye, Bye, Bye / N’Sync


    This one is called “Workout Songs 2” (I use this one when I plan to be in the gym a while).

    Beautiful Day/ U2
    Born To Run / Bruce Springsteen
    Hungry Like A Wolf / Duran Duran
    867-5309 / Tommy Tutone
    Don’t You Want Me Baby / Human League
    Ray Of Light / Madonna
    Sussudio / Phil Collins
    Barracuda / Heart
    Magic Man / Heart
    Crazy On You / Heart
    Believe / Cher
    Go All The Way / Raspberries
    I Wanna Be With You / Raspberries
    Tainted Love / Soft Cell
    Jump / Pointer Sisters

    Re: Your music mixes

    Looks like we like a lot of the same stuff, Joseph. I'd be willing to work out with you to those tunes!

    I'm glad you posted some of your track lists. I might want to steal some ideas from other people for future compilations. The Raspberries would be a great addition!

    Re: Your music mixes

    My titles are just as bad. My favorite is "Morning Drive II." It helps wake me up for the drive to work (that, and a gallon of coffee)...I don't keep to one genre, I throw anything I like on there.

    Adam Lambert - For Your Entertainment
    Metallica - One
    Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
    AC/DC - Back in Black
    Ariana Grande - Problem
    The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter
    Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead or Alive
    Hozier - Take Me to Church
    LMFAO - Sexy and I Know It
    Kanye West - Stronger
    Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines
    Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
    Sniff'n the Tears - Driver's Seat
    Cliff Richard - Devil Woman
    Katy Perry - Dark Horse
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Re: Your music mixes

    Ooo, I love Adam Lambert's CD, For Your Entertainment! I have it at work and it gets heavy rotation. It's one of those CD's I can listen to all day while I get my work done and not feel the need to put something else on. I haven't gotten his subsequent CD's yet so I'm not sure if I'll like them as much.

    I love your Morning Drive II! Good stuff!!!
