Okay, so I submitted this WAY late and now it's going to end up near the bottom of the list. But it was still fun to make. I guess there isn't really much need to describe the mix, since there isn't really a theme other than staying inside the guidelines for each track.

Also, the cover was found in an image search for a misspelling of "potpourri."

1. Your Favorite Album Opener

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a Bowie fanboy. The Man Who Sold the World was one of the first albums that made me a Bowie fan, and I have vivid memories of listening to 'Width of a Circle' and 'Black Country Rock' before and after practice every day during my first year of swimteam.

3. A Song That Makes You Want To Commit A Felony

While puttin' together the mix I was going through songs in my head that would make me want to commit a felony. When I thought of Date Rape, the thought of someone wanting to commit a felony after hearing this song seemed hilarious, and I couldn't stop laughing.

Track 3 from Discovery
Length: 00:04:58
Year: 2001
Track Description:
4. A Song About Sex

Even though the lyrics are about a euphoric dream and dancing with a pretty girl, so much more is said with the music. The unrelenting beats, softly-sung lyrics and synth-turned-guitar porno riffs give away its secret. If I ever make a "Boning" playlist on my iPod like P. Diddy, this song will be the climax. (I.e., the second song.)

5. A Song Michael Bolton Should Cover

"Whole world is rough, it's just gettin' rougher. Cover me"
Only a man as awesomely bad (I know, I used a VH1 ripoff, I'm pathetic) as Michael Bolton could possibly handle such tough times with a stone face, but still find the tenderness to open up to his sweetheart, because, truly... he's hurting inside.

Track Description:
6. The Worst Song In The World

I actually like Nirvana. What I don't like about them is that every time anyone mentions "Man Who Sold the World" (the Nirvana or the Bowie recording) at least four kids pipe up with "Oh! I love Nirvana!"

And every time I hear Bowie's work associated with a guy who probably knew three-fifths of the chords in the song he covered, I have to think to myself: "Fuck you, Kurdt Cobain."

11. A Song From The Last Record You Purchased

Well, I've never purchased a record. And I normally don't purchase CDs either. The last CD that I did purchase, however, wasn't really an actual CD, but more of a novelty item. It's a Taiwanese promo CD of Gorillaz vs. Daft Punk (pic: http://www.null06.net/4/ Gorillaz-Tomorrow-Comes-To-196210.jpg ) with sweet album art.

Width Of Circle isan awesome Bowie choice, and I too am something of a fan. Some great stuff here. As for the Nirvana thing, sounds to me like it is the fans you are really pissed off with, not the band themselves.

I -'d you because you said Nirvana was overrated because Cobain killed himself and said that them starting the grunge movement was no big deal.
I agree they're overrated sometimes. But, I cannot allow Nirvana to be the worst song ever on a mix, nor can I allow you to say the only reason they're popular is because of their lead singer's suicide. Any band that can change music and start a movement deserves recognition.
