A special playlist : 7/20/05

This playlist is a little more different than usual since this one is a little closer to home.

Recently my baby sister accepted a 8 month contract job in Ghana to help the radio station develop better human rights reporting practices for radio. It's a challenge to her since she's never worked in radio before and television is where her expertise is. She's there now (she left this past Sunday) and I think of her often and miss her terribly.

Anyways, this play list is a copy of a CD I made for her and uploaded into her computer and her MP3 Player (she askedme to copy some CD's for her while she was on the phone). She didn't know about the mix I made until she checked later that evening. Sure, I got in crap for it but hey .. it's the thought that counts right?!

The mix is called "For My Sister With Love From Her Brother". It's a collection of songs that I like and a song at the end that means alot to her and I and hopefully when she listens to this she thinks of her always loving big brother. So here it is .. for my baby sister who I love and miss terribly already.

Stay safe sis ..

Interesting list, many of which I'm not familiar with. Thanks for the listing.

[DirtyLilSecret61] : It's a mixture of some old 80's songs and some newer stuff.

I'll burn you a copy and send one to you. I think you would know some of the 80's songs like "Poison Arrow" and "Send Me An Angel" if you heard them. As far as the newer .. I like the stuff and even a few you may know if you listen to the radio lots!

And speaking of Kajagoogoo .. the lead singer, Limahl did the theme song for what childrens' movie?

Richard Cheese ! Man, Lounge against the machine was hilarious.

On the other hand, have you heard Mythos and DJ Cosmos remix of Send me an Angel ?

btw, he did the opening track for Neverending Story wasn't it ?

Tejinashi: Richard Cheese is HYSTERICAL! His take is just awesome for "Relax". I had never heard of him until I saw "Dawn of The Dead" ("Return Of The Dead" .. the one that came out last year) and there was this version of "Down With The Sickness" playing .. the usuage was funny and I thought "this rocks!!!" so I sourced him out and I have been a fan since!

Never heard he remix!

And yes, Limahl did the opening theme for "The Never Ending Story"! (which you can see on YTV every once in awhile!)

Good work!

humboldthonni: Thank you for the kind words. It was the least that I could do should she get home sick and needed to know that someone was thinking of her .. and that's what the idea was for!
