This mix is a little on the schizo side, which is maybe appropriate since it was partially inspired by Richard Metzger’s post on 60’s girl-band The Cake (whose trippy Rainbow Wood is included here.) This mix includes sex (gay sex, even!) drugs (OMD covering The Velvet Underground) and rock and roll. And also buubblegum, Tammy Wynette, early Liz Phair, and one of my very favorite forgotten swoony love songs of the eighties.

If you’re actually in LA and dealing with a possibly homophobic client you might want to skip the Miracles song, but otherwise I suggest keeping it in there; if he notices, it’ll at least make an interesting conversation topic, and if he doesn’t it’ll at least be fun for you.

And, as always, if you like the music, you should go out and buy it. Preferably from a real person in a real store, while you still can.
