it’s december. wow. 2010 went by so quickly, yet i can barely remember january. this was my first post of 2010 where i declared that i would ‘go out and see more stuff’. i’m not sure i lived up to my resolution. i’d like to be hopeful in thinking that 2011 is going to be different. so this month’s music mix is all about trying to be upbeat and … um… full of hope – but in a proactive & non-cheesy way. as bowie so wisely sang:

don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel
(come get up my baby)
look at that sky, life’s begun
nights are warm and the days are young
(come get up my baby)

golden years. playlist:

  1. david bowie – golden years
  2. mean lady – indian sun
  3. cut copy – take me over
  4. matt & kim – good for great
  5. broken social scene – 7/4 shoreline
  6. hey marseilles – rio
  7. modest mouse – float on
  8. supergrass – alright
  9. paul simon – you can call me al
  10. the beach boys – wouldn’t it be nice (the girls can hear us remix)
  11. champions – changes
  12. the pastels / tenniscoats – vivid youth
  13. zooey deschanel – sugar town
  14. the strokes – i’ll try anything once
  15. the walkmen – in the new year
  16. tv on the radio – golden age

ps. i have to note that this is the third paul simon track i have included in my playlists. i actually couldn’t believe i hadn’t put you can call me al in one already, as it is my favourite song of his. i rattled on about it here… and i just watched that video for the hundredth time.
