I just put together a mix tonight--to get me through the weekend, I suppose--and thought I would post it right away. Two posts in one day...it's like I took steroids or something. (Hmm, I wonder what kind of music Barry Bonds listens to...Twisted Sister?).
Anyways, here's the mix. There's a good measure of Gnarls Barkley on here (about whom I've blogged below), also a couple tunes each by Weezer, Andrew Bird and Beck (I love "I Think I'm in Love"). Also: a good track by a band that's new to me, The Virgins; a classic cut of Midwestern swagger from John Mellencamp; and some other stuff, too. I'll post this mix on the right by the weekend...so I can listen to it when I forget to bring my iPod to work next week.
