Music for Mark

A few years ago, a friend of mine was going through a very difficult period. He lost his mother, then his father, in the span of thirteen months, and then had some serious medical issues himself. To cheer him up — because we are both 80s kids — I sent him a mix CD with no track listing, so he had to play detective, something we both enjoy. I was particularly pleased with this mix and have embellished it just slightly in the last year. Perhaps you'd enjoy it too.

"Mowgli's Road" — Marina and the Diamonds
"Gobbledigook" — Sigur Rós
"Velvet Revolution" — Tori Amos
"Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" — Jet
"I Want You for Mine" — Michael Rault
"L'ours" — Tricot Machine
"Spinmeharder" (boot) — DJ Tripp
"Paper Shoes" — Hawksley Workman
"Salute Your Solution" — The Raconteurs
"Dude You Feel Electrical" — Shout Out Out Out Out
"This Wheel's On Fire" — Siouxsie & The Banshees
"You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" — The Submarines
"I Was Made for Loving You" — Kilt
"Booinlove" (boot demo) — DJ Tripp
"A.C.D.C." — Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
"Banditos" — The Refreshments
"Motorpsycho Nitemare" — Capt Nemo
"Jerusalem" — Dan Bern
"Love Ire & Song" — Frank Turner
"Sub su'a job" — Mad'moizèle Giraf
"Start Wearing Purple" — Gogol Bordello
"A Complete History of the Soviet Union, Through the Eyes of a Humble Worker" — Pig with the Face of a Boy
"Brave Sir Robin" — Brad Bradley and David Hyde Pierce (Spamalot)
"Float On" — Modest Mouse

I do love a well-crafted playlist!
