PostSubject: Steph's mixtape; Aug 10-16   Steph's mixtape; Aug 10-16 Icon_minitimeSun Aug 09, 2009 4:57 pm

I'm posting my mixtape tomorrow, but I need help getting it uploaded to a site; I have it on Itunes, and I can't figure out how to save all the songs as one thing so I can upload them. Yes, I'm a bit computer challenged...

Alright folks, mixtapes uploaded! I got too excited thinking about what
kind of mixtape to make and came up with a bunch of themes and lists
and whatnot, and ended up making two...so here you go, music overload.
Hope at least a few of you enjoy these and hear something new! Feast
your ears upon...



Steph's First Mixtape- "The Devil's Music"

megaupload.com F53NE2XJ


Steph's Second Mixtape- "Lonesome Town"

megaupload.com 5BXHIKBF


First Mixtape


01- "Ballroom Blitz"- The Sweet

This song is just funny...and I think it starts off the mixtape well.
Heard this song years ago and never could find out who sings it,
apparently it's some glam rock band from the '70's!

02- "Bastards of Young"- The Replacements

I freakin love this song...gets me singin along and just makes me feel
good, every time I hear it, like I get out my frustration with the
world. It starts off so great, so much energy.

03- "You'll Never Walk Alone"- The Adicts

If you've never seen this band, they dress like A Clockwork Orange.
British punk rock band from the '80's, I'm not sure if they are still
together, but I saw 'em a few years back, and they put on a great show.

04- "It's Been So Long"- The Horrorpops


Some of you might be familiar with them...I think they have done the
Warped Tour before; one of the guys is also in the Nekromantix. They're
like psychobilly/rockabilly pop.

05- "Some Kinda Hate"- The Misfits

What can I say?...probly my favorite Misfits song. It's from "Static
Age," an album recorded with Danzig, that was supposed to be their
first album, but wasnt released until nearly twenty years later.

06- "The Photographer"- Girl in a Coma

This is a great rock band, from Texas. They're signed to Joan Jett's
label and have opened for Morrissey, and supposedly also opened for
Social Distortion. Some people call em punk, I'm not sure.

07- "Pet Sematary"- The Ramones

I'm sure you all know The Ramones, I couldn't help including them on this mix.

08- "Hangin' on the Telephone"- Blondie

Once again, I'm sure you've all heard of Blondie before...

09- "Behind Closed Doors"- Rise Against

I had to include Rise Against on my rockin' out mix...I love them.

10- "Human Fly"- The Cramps

I just like this song. Some people credit The Cramps with being the
first psychobilly song. It's probably a song you'll really dig or
really not...

11- "Beyond Redemption"- HIM

Have to give some love to my old favorite band. This is one of their
more rock songs. Not sure if anyone will care for this, but that's
alright...

12- "Fall In"- Adam and the Ants

Actually, I'm not sure if this is Adam and the Ants, or just Adam Ant.
But it's a fun song so it goes on the mix! If you've never heard Adam
and the Ants before, they were a new wave/ post punk band in the '80's.

13- "Teenage Kicks"- The Undertones

Haven't heard many songs by The Undertones before, but I love this
one. I love his voice in this song, it's perfect with the lyrics.

14- "Like a Lady"- The Sounds

The Sounds are a Swedish band, they're getting fairly popular now, but
I haven't listened to their new stuff yet. They're kinda dance-y but
more rock and roll than clubbing music. I guess they're kinda new
wave/punk/pop all mixed together.

15- "Under My Thumb"- Social D


Had to include Social D on my mix, too! I like this cover better than the original (Rolling Stones).

16- "Brooklyn"- Civet

I thought this was a good song to end the 'rock and roll' kinda mix
on...another band that has toured with Social D. Her voice is similar
to Brody from The Distillers.



Second Mixtape


01- "Flowers and Football Tops"- Glasvegas

If you haven't heard this band before, you're sorely missing out. I
read somewhere the band admires the Wall of Sound, Phil Spector thing,
and you can hear that in their music. They do a pretty good cover of
"Be My Baby." Plus I recall reading somewhere that Brian Fallon sang a
line from their song "Geraldine," during one of Gaslight's performances
at one of the festivals they played in England recently. Read what this
song is about, it's heartbreaking: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Kriss_Donald

02- "God of Wine"- Third Eye Blind

Once again, have to show some love for an old favorite band...I was
obsessed with them in junior high...you know, "Semi-Charmed Life"?
Their first, self titled album was a lot better than people gave it
credit for.

03- "Little Motel"- Modest Mouse

I just love this song.

04- "I've Been Loving You Too Long"- Otis Redding

You have to be a little amazed at how beautiful Otis Redding's voice is when you hear this song.

05- "How Do You Keep Love Alive"- Ryan Adams

Really sad song, appropriate for this mix!

06- "Please Die, Ana"- Silverchair

I get drawn in by this song every time. It's about the singer's struggle with anorexia.

07- "November"- Azure Ray

Once again, I just love this song. So sad in such a pretty way.

08- "Here Comes a Regular"- The Replacements

You know, I don't like a lot of sad, mellow, ballad type songs from
bands that normally play upbeat, rock and roll songs, but The
Replacements could really do both.

09- "Twilight"- Elliott Smith

I just love Elliott Smith, I'm sad I never got to see him...If I
ever want to just wallow in a depressed mood, I put on Elliott Smith.
Maybe that sounds weird, but listening to him, one the one hand I feel
depressed, on the other hand, I feel like I'm not alone...anyway, this
song is from his last album, the one he was working on before his
death, so the whole thing is not as it would have been if he were still
alive...but it's still great.

10- "Flowers in December"- Mazzy Star

A lot of people know them from their song "Fade Into You," they
have a lot of good sad or just mellow tunes. I love the harmonica on
this song, it's perfect.

11- "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted"- Jimmy Ruffin

I had to include this one! It's kinda sad, but it's got a more
upbeat sound than a lot of the songs on this mix, didn't want it to be
too depressing.

12- "I'll Stand By You"- The Pretenders

I just have always loved this song. Chrissie Hynde has a cool, unique voice.

13- "Between the Bars"- Elliott Smith

Yes, another Elliott Smith song. I did say I loved him...plus this is from a couple albums back, and it's such a good song...

14- "I Know It's Over"- Jeff Buckley

Hah! I managed to put some Jeff Buckley on a mixtape, and it's not
"Hallelujah," as good as that cover is, this is another good cover he
did of a Smiths song. Not sure I like it better than the original, but
it's pretty damn good.

15- "Asleep"- The Smiths

Couldn't forget The Smiths...I don't know how anyone can't love Morrissey's voice.

16- "Do You Want to Come With"- Stephen Fretwell

I heard this song and bought the CD. Don't know much of his other stuff, but I like this song...

17- "Disintegration"- The Cure

I love, love, love The Cure, particularly "Disintegration." They just create a whole world with their songs...

And sorry, this one might put it just barely over the one-burnt-cd mark, it's kinda long!

i know how to do it, i will try to explain

i got my all my songs in my windows media player and if do not know the original storage location of a song (the file itself), i just make a "right click" on that song. then there must be something like " show storage location". you click that and you see the file itself as saved on your computer.
must be the same with itunes (i know itunes, but never worked with it)

you take all the songs you want to and put them all together into one folder. you name that folder as you want. then right click on the folder. there must be something like "send to "ZIP-folder"".

then you upload your folder on a filesharing site of your choice.


i hope that is any help and sorry, but i do not know the exact english pendants for our german computer language.
good luck

Starting my listen now, i'll keep you updated. Glasvegas - heard of these guys a while ago and enjoyed thier album, although I though Daddy's gone was a bad choice of single.

When ever I hear Social D's cover of 'Under my Thumb' I always kinda wonder what went on there. It's a great song, don't get me wrong but when you look at in the following way

This guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLyJ-0uoVJA

Listening to these guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI6WA-2CgyE

it's kinda weird.

These mix tapes are an awesome idea. Heaps of bands I haven't heard of so I'm gonna download this along with some others when I get home.

well yeah, that scene from "another state of mind" is kinda funny looking back now, but that was a long time ago- before it was fashionable, before you could buy fishnet tops at hot topic and before boys really wore makeup and whatnot...

cant judge a book by the cover, ya know?
