Saturday Morning Awkward Dance Mix

When it comes to mixtapes, I usually love every song I put on them. "Highly rec'd" and "download or die" serve to highlight tracks by excellent bands you may not have heard of. If you somehow missed Wheatus' one hit wonder, "Teenage Dirtbag Baby," you must download it.

Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag Baby (I love this song!)
Ben Folds Five - Rockin' the Suburbs
Tralala - All Fired Up (highly rec'd)
Bondo Do Role - James Bonde
(see previous post)
Spoon - All the Negatives Have Been Destroyed
New Pornographers - Your Daddy Don't Know
Ben Kweller - Jerry Falwell Destroyed Earth (in m4a, sorry)
Electric Six - Danger! High Voltage
The Chalets - Sexy Mistake
The Futureheads - Stupid and Shallow
Mika - Grace Kelly
The Go! Team - Get It Together
Euromotion - Don't Tell Me Your Name [download or die]
(This song requires an explanation: German rockers have come from the future to make music that you can't help but dance to. This band is a cult obsession among a lot of my Oberlin friends.
"Sit on the couch, like a bump on the log,
While I work it on the dance floor like a naughty frog
I see you watching, I can tell that you’re jealous
If there’s a secret why you can’t dance then why don’t you tell us?")

    Thats a good mixtape, I'm only disiking the Mika song, buyt other than that I've loved it all.

    hehe. My roommate last year was obsessed with Mika, and it used to get on my nerves so much. Only since the summer started have I come to love Mika in his own right.

    What are you, 12? Learn how to write a complete sentence or get off the internet. "When it comes to mixtapes I usually love every song I put them," followed by a comma splice. I hope you don't have any critical aspirations.

    I'm so glad you're brave enough to post anonymous comments on 4-month-old posts. Yes, this post wasn't the pinnacle of perfect punctuation (take that alliteration!), but I'm also fairly certain all the commas were left out by blogger somehow.
    And no, I wouldn't say I have "critical aspirations."
