Today’s my brother’s birthday- I can’t believe my LITTLE brother is 30 years old now! But that’s what happen when you get all old and stuff. 😉 Anyway, due to school being about to start and a bunch of other little things, I’m pretty broke. What’s a sister to do for a gift for her brother? Why, make him an awesome mix CD.
The thing is, his music taste is all over the place. Another person’s music taste is really important when making them a mix CD. If they despise the Bee Gees and you fill a CD up with “Stayin’ Alive” the CD you made isn’t going to be listened to or appreciated.
So I sat and thought about what he liked and remembered he and I both really dig random covers of older songs. So I pulled up my iTunes (BTW, don’t steal music. Stealing music is wrong.) and made him a CD that has both the random covers and the originals. I know he’ll dig it.
In case you’re interested in knowing what’s on the most awesome mix CD ever (well, the most awesome one I ever made, anyway) here’s the play list:
Hey Ya! by Outkast and Obadiah Parker
(Title omitted because there are grandmas that read this blog) by Dr. Dre and Ben Folds
Shine by Collective Soul and Dolly Parton
Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Judy Garland and Israel Kamakawiwoʻole
Hurt by Nine Inch Nails and Johnny Cash
Superfreak by Rick James and Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs (HT to Ginger on that one)
Mrs. Robinson by Simon & Garfunkel and Cake
Gin & Juice by Snoop Dogg and The Gourds
See, I told you his (and my) musical taste was all over the place! So, Home Eccers, tell me about your awesome mix CDs. Or, tell me about a fab cover of a song that I didn’t list.
