Mixtape Game


Recommended Posts

Here's how it goes:

  • The first person posts a theme and the next person posts 10 songs that match, like you were making a themed mixtape.
  • Themes could be anything from Cheese to Money to Captain Kirk.
  • Try not to go too obscure though. General Blue may be an awesome Dragon Ball character but I doubt most of the board will know who he is.
  • You can post more than ten songs but it's not necessary.
  • You can also post your thinking behind choosing a song but, once again, not necessary.
  • Songs don't have to be directly linked to the idea. If you have Captain Kirk, if you find a song about Kirk, awesome but Womanizer would be just as valid of a choice.
  • After you post your ten song mix, then you post the next theme.

First theme is...

Gilligan's Island

Okay, The Big Lebowski (but nothing from the soundtrack or the film that wasn't in the soundtrack).

1. Sex on Fire (live) by The Dude Abides

2. Let it Rattle by POS

3. I Heard it Through the Grapevine by Creedence Clearwater Revival

4. Waitin' Around to Die by Townes Van Zandt

5. White Russian by Bowski

6. You're Out of Your Element, Donnie by Smaller On You

7. Nihilism by Rancid

8. 1985 by Bowling For Soup

9. Curl of the Burl by Mastodon

10. Dudeism by Jacob & Juiced

Okay, not everything will be Dude-approved, but that's probably part of the point.

The next theme? Kaiju

Will, I'm British. The very idea that I would mock the idea of Princess Di as being anything less than a divine goddess of our times is sacrilege in the eyes of certain sections of our populace/media. And I've met/stood within 2 metres of her as a child, but honestly, all of her misdemeanours (some media-fabricated, others not so much) were conveniently whitewashed and forgotten due to her death. And people were lining the streets sobbing, to my utter surprise aged 12. Her cult has died down somewhat nowadays, but back when the BBC were launching the "100 Greatest Britons" series in 2002, which was then adopted around the world, she finished 3rd, behind only Sir Winston Churchill and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, whilst finishing above Sir Isaac Newton, Shakespeare and Charles Darwin.

In short, Princess Diana is massively overrated. And evil.
