Mix CD

I made a CD of pop songs I suspected my wee kids would like. Given the following playlist, evidently I think my kids will enjoy a lot of '80s synthesizer. (And some occasional catchy '60s guitar.) Because, hey, that's what *I* like.

And track 15 is by The Monkees, of course. Silly iTunes and its failure to shrink long titles so they're readable.

The kids *love* a couple of Vampire Weekend tracks from a previous mix CD, and I attribute that to the bouncy strings riff, so I'm hoping they can relate to a similar sound in keyboards.

And let me know if you need a copy of this CD too. ;)

Heheh--your daughters have good taste! (Not a surprise, really.) Thanks to Seattle's KEXP, I am familiar with both those songs, and think them quite catchy. Though isn't "Take the Skinheads Bowling" from way back when?

I rely on KEXP to keep me at least moderately up-to-date, as far as indie/"alternative" music goes. I'm quite out of touch with top 40 now, with the exception of those groups who cross over from the alternative side.

Yes, the Camper Van Beethoven part is from my own youth...
