"MIXED UP 21"

Welcome to another edition of "If It Could Only Still Be Socially Acceptable To Make A Mix Tape, This Is What I Would Put On One This Week" Saturday! In all the hustle and bustle of the week, I almost overlooked the fact that on March 1st, this blog was a year old. So, let's rock out to some birthday-ish, bloggy and year-ish music this week, shall we?

1. Bigmouth Strikes Again/The Smiths
2. Last Good Day of The Year/Cousteau**
3. Birthday/TheSugarcubes
4. Anniversary/The Cure
5. Life In A Glass House/Radiohead
6. Won't Let you Down/Wilco
7. Anniversary/Voltaire
8. Golden Years/David Bowie
9. Pretty Good Year/Tori Amos
10. Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event/The Deftones
11. Eyes Without A Face/Billy Idol
12. The World Has Turned And Left Me Here/Weezer
13. Anniversary Song/Cowboy Junkies
14. Open Book/Cake
15. Anniversary/The Pogues

**Who remembers the significance of this song to me? Anyone? Bueller? Ah, tell you what-- the first person to tell me (in my comments section):

(a) the significance of that song to me, (b) the names of three venues where I have held readings and (c) the names of the three women in my book, Three Fallen Women, shall win a fancy Three Fallen Women lapel pin.

Oh, and speaking of winnings, the "Friends In High Places" Contest isn't going to win itself. Remember, it isn't about getting a famous person in the photo, just the most famous person you have access to. You get a lot more than a lapel pin for winning that one. C'mon. Humor me. It'll be fun.

A- You run marathons listening to that song.

B- The Fixx, Sentient Bean and Broad Vocabulary

C- Paige, Hannah, mother

Will you deliver the pin to my house? I'll make it worth your time, baby.

Amy Guth said...

Oy, Jake, Jake, Jake. I am so not your baby.

I wouldn't deliver the pin in person just on principal, but also because you didn't answer two of three correctly.

Tsk. Tsk.
