Long-time readers will remember that I did a long series on this blog, called Friday Music, starting back in 2005. Every week or so, I’d post a “mixtape of the internet”, sharing stuff that had grabbed my attention, both new and old.
Like so many other things in my life, it kind of drifted off — I’ve tried, a few times, to resurrect it, but not with any real sticking power. Well, I’m giving it another shot — and this time, in that convenient streaming format that the kids all go crazy over!
Yep, I’ve now got a profile up on Mixcloud, and, every couple of weeks or so, I’m going to post a mix — 40 minutes or so of music, which you can listen to via your phone (Mixcloud has an app on Android and IOS), or your desktop. I’ll put a player widget here, and you should also feel free to share it via Twitter, Facebook, etc.
This week’s playlist:
1. Big Audio Dynamite, “C’Mon Every Beatbox”
2. Stewart Copeland, “Coco”
3. The Pursuit of Happiness, “I’m An Adult Now”
4. A Flock of Seagulls, “(It’s Not Me) Talking (Remix)”
5. The Ocean Blue, “Between Something And Nothing”
6. Nick Heyward, “Whistle Down The Wind”
7. Human League, “The Lebanon”
8. The Police, “I Burn For You”
