description:
this was really overwhelming to make. the first draft i made of this was three hours and twenty minutes. the next cut got it down to two and a half hours. i had to painfully cut great song after great song until i got it down to this. so unfortunately, this is somewhat incomplete, but i hope it still makes some sense. it's sort of silly, a little serious, kinda fun. i mean honestly, if all art forms have been destroyed, i think any song that someone would hear would be wonderful. so here's my time-capsule, all-encompassing, mix of the future.

and since i thought i could make a ninety minute mix, but can't, tracks that DID make the cut but had to be scrapped at the last minute were as follows:
gnarls barkley-crazy
paul mccartney & wings- nineteen hundred and eighty five
the who- baba o'reilly
led zeppelin-immigrant song


if anyone would like to see the original 24 song mix in its entirety, feel free to let me know, i would be happy to send it to you.

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall's calling, it lingers, then you forget
You're a rock 'n' roll suicide
You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clock waits patiently on your song
