CD Compilations

One of the great things about the era of burnable CDs & the MP3 is that it makes easier to indulge in one of my favorite passtimes: creating music compilations. For those of you, dear readers, who are too young to know anything beyond an iPod playlist, a music compilation is essentially a playlist on CD.

Laying aside the issues of piracy/copyright infringement for a later blog post, I've been making music compilations for so long, my first ones were on CASSETTES! You don't know the hassle it was to eliminate the sound artifacts of recording on tape, my dear readers, you really don't.

In fact, when one of my oldest friends got married, and I couldn't afford a decent wedding gift, I gave him a CD compilation. Apparently, he (and his wife) really liked it. They assure me they still listen to it to this very day. The point of this post is to announce my latest compilation!

In anticipation of my getting a vehicle in the near future, I created a cd about cars & driving! Here's the tracklist:

01 - The Breakfast Club - Drive My Car
02 - Coolio - Fantastic Voyage
03 - AC/DC - Highway To Hell
04 - Steppenwolf - Magic Carpet Ride (Crystal Method Remix)
05 - War - Low Rider
06 - Stealers Wheel - Stuck In The Middle With You
07 - Huey Lewis & Gwenyth Paltrow - Cruisin'
08 - The Band - The Weight
09 - Elton John - Tiny Dancer
10 - Will Smith - Just Cruisin'
11 - Roxette - Joyride
12 - Billy Ocean - Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car
13 - Aretha Franklin - Freeway of Love
14 - Rob Zombie - Dragula
15 - AC/DC - Back In Black
16 - Tom Cochrane - Life Is A Highway
17 - Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild

If you can find all the tracks, legally, build your own version of the CD! I guarantee you'll feel strongly about it!! Good or bad, is up in the air.

And if you want a compilation designed, let me know, give me the theme and I'll give you a tracklist!

    18 - Rihanna - Shut Up And Drive

    Yes, I know she's not talking about driving in the song, but the lyrics are about driving, so there!!!
