description:
In spite of all the catastrophes the last seven years have brought, we have amassaed a gloriously cheerful (but then, after repeated listenings, vaguely sinister) soundtrack for the milleneum. Here is my sampling.

um. also, the last seven years have been characterized by a lot of laziness and periodic drunkenness on my part. so, to continue with that, these descriptions are sort of crap. they make no sense.

How did you get away with Edith Piaf on a 2000-2007 mix? That calls for disqualification, right?

But damn, if it isn't a sweet mix. I really, really like these songs.

I really like this mix. You used some songs that I really regret not using. But yeah, some of my favorite artists of the millenium - Of Montreal, Wolf Parade, Andrew Bird, Beirut. I'm just an indie kid, I know.
