With the recent Paul McCartney concert and Guardians of the Galaxy premiere, I have had a Seventies dance party swirling around in my head. I created a new mix including the tunes from “Awesome Mix Vol I” and those I think Star-Lord should have on Vol II.

Enjoy the earworms!
I had a sudden hankering for some classic rock and the voices of Ian Hunter, Eric Burdon and Rod Argent, so I dug out an old set of mixes, “When Vinyl Ruled” Plus, I still think Mott the Hoople is an awesome band name. Sadly, most songs are not in the Spotify database so there is no point sharing the link.
Nights out in the early 90’s often ended with dancing at Barnies Underground where my then DJ crush used to play fun music and would always squeeze in my requests. These playlists I made years later remind me of some great times downtown. I added them to Spotify but they are missing a few songs in their database.
This playlist from 1989 started out as a mix tape of songs that reminded me of a dude I was crushing on. 25 years later I can not be certain which dude it was but the generous amount of Camper Van Beethoven have it narrowed down to one of two. Ahh, memories…faded, vague memories.
I finally started playing with Spotify and will be uploading my too many playlist slowly.
“Keeping The Current” Vol 1 is the first of a series of playlists I made right after SXSW 2010 when I could not get enough Spoon, The Hold Steady, Free Energy, Blitzen Trapper and others. This playlist seems relevant again as The Hold Steady has a new album out tomorrow and I will be seeing Blitzen Trapper and Drive-by Truckers live again this week.
The playlist reminds me of being at Stubbs in Austin, TX at the very back of the outdoor venue sitting on a boulder so I could rest my soon-to-be-replaced hip when some random dude came and sat by me and started to talk but then fell over and laid on the ground for a while before his friends finally came to retrieve him. I have a way with the dudes.
