Brian - "Soft"


 
Hello friends,


and yes, dear readers, the requests for these little mixes keep flooding in, Brian from the ever-wonderful Linear Tracking Lives! - blog wrote in saying:


"OK, here is my theme. "Soft." In particular, I would like to hear what your favorite songs were when a particularly loud post-punk band pulled off turning it down."


Now this was not an easy task, Brian! Thank God he re-confirmed to me in a second mail that also punk bands (hence post-punk bands) were allowed to feature.  So all of the below are rather "big" names from the punk era and all of them are commonly known to do rather rowdy stuff normally. At least I would think this is the case, because naturally I don't know all of each band's output. But the majority of their work is quite loud, I would think, so they deserved to get included. See what you make out of it, Brian, I do hope you like what I chose for you .... so enjoy:

Take good care,


Dirk

Walter - "Cities"


Hello friends,

the next request came from Walter who lives in the Southern part of Germany. He runs a very fine blog as well, called "A Few Good Times In My Life": another one I can only highly recommend to you, shouldn't you know it already, because, unlike me, Walter really does offer a great variety of styles to choose from. Have a look, it's really worth it!

Here's what he had to say: "and here is my request: I would like to have a mix with songs with names of cities in it.". No problem at all, my friend, here you are. Enjoy:


Now, wasn't that absolutely super? Please let me know whether it met with your approval, Walter! Also, whilst searching for the tunes in my library, I found out that could have done a great mix with songs with federal states in the title, 'Texas' in particular! But he wanted cities, so he got cites and cities only! Perhaps one of these days ....

All the best,

Dirk
