Return Of The Upbeat...

Last week, I went out with some new friends. While the club scene really isn't my thing, the night did end up with a few positive points. One of which was a discussion I had where I took issue with the music that is played at clubs, including the one we went to that night. The end result of that conversation being that I promised to make a CD of what I call "good music" for them. This lead to an idea for me, and the reason for this post. See, back in the 90s, I was distressed by the amount of slow, sad music that was being released. So, I decided to create a series of CD which I dubbed "Upbeat Mix" that would have NO slow songs of any kind... EVER!! In working on the CD which I had promised to my friend, I decided to re-create this series!! Why? Well, I'm glad you asked.

The first series was really fun to make, and I listened to them all the time! But, as the years passed, the discs got damaged or went "missing". Also, I wasn't as careful back then at keeping records, so I didn't have a listing of what I put on the CDs so I couldn't remake them either. Plus, MP3s have made HUGE leaps forward in how well they reproduce sound. So, I figured, it would be awesome to restart the series from scratch, so to speak!! Thus Upbeat Mix: 2nd Series was born!!!

Here is the tracklist:

01) Mary J. Blige - Family Affair
02) Marc Anthony - I Need To Know (Miami Remix)
03) Nelson Polanco - Cana Dulce (Spanglish)
04) Usher Feat. Pitbull - DJ Got us Fallin' In Love
05) Finger Eleven - Paralyzer (Atlantic City Beats Lenny B. Radio Edit)
06) David Guetta - Night Of Your Life (Feat. Jennifer Hudson)
07) Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love (Moto Blanco Radio Edit)
08) Enrique Iglesias - Dirty Dancer (With Usher, Feat. Lil Wayne)
09) Pitbull - Rain Over Me (Feat. Marc Anthony)
10) David Guetta - Repeat (Feat. Jessie J)
11) Bananarama - Move In My Direction
12) Lionel Richie - Angel (Metro Mix)
13) Soluna - Bring It To Me
14) Ciara - Love Sex Magic (Original Version feat. Justin Timberlake)
15) Nikki Costa - Everybody Got Their Something
16) Jamelia - Superstar
17) Mis-Teeq - Scandalous
18) Steppenwolf - Magic Carpet Ride (Crystal Method Remix)
19) My Darkest Days - Porn Star Dancing (Feat. Chad Kroger, Ludacris, and Zakk Wylde)
20) Nickelback - Shakin' Hands
