    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.

    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!!!
