Here is my mixtape, sorry if its a little late in the day, but i had a long day of classes.
Ill have descriptions up tomorrow, but here is the tracklist:
1. Mary-The MoBros: This is one of my good friends from high school and his little brother. They are really good and I thought Id try to spread there name some. Great guys, great band, great song.
2. A Lifetime-Better than Ezra (live) This is from there show at the House of Blues in New Orleans. A beautiful song about the loss of someone dear and dealing with that loss.
3. The General-Dispatch: A very, very cool song about a general realizing the reality of war and that its not worth it.
4. Dancing Queen-Frank Turner: I'm sure you have all heard the original by ABBA, but I think Frank Turner does a great job of putting his own spin on it.
5. The Road (acoustic)-Frank Turner: In my opinion this is the best song on his new album. Very cool video as well. This version is from the 'Deluxe Version' from iTunes.
6. Satellite-Kiss Kiss: I heard these guys open for Fake Problems and they were amazing live. Even got to talk to them for a long time afterwards and they were really cool people. There music had almost a haunting beauty to it.
7. King Without a Crown-Matisyahu: Truth be told, I dont know that much about this song and this is the only song by Matisyahu song I know, but I love it.
8. Stand Up and Shout-Dio: A bit of a change of pace, but something I really like. One of the few people who could ever replace Ozzy Osbourne. Great song about not being held back by people who disagree with you.
9. One Man Revolution-The Nightwatchman: Much to my disappointment brad put The Nightwatchman on his mixtape. Its really a similar attitude to RATM but a much different approach.
10. Wagon Wheel-Old Crow Medicine Show: Just some good, fun Southern music. The chorus was actually originally written by Bob Dylan, but he never finished it so OCMS built a song around it. Against Me! does a decent cover of it as well.
11. No Control-Pepper: I love the intro to this song. Im also a big fan of the attitude of living life uncontrolled (except for the drug stuff).
12. Born to be Wild-Steppenwolf: A classic.
13. Maximum Firepower-The Nightwatchman: Tom Morello at his best. Lot of cool little references in this song. Not gonna lie, this song gets me fairly pumped up.
14. Heart BPM-Chris Farren: An acoustic solo performance at 88.1 Weber. I feel this version is way more meaningful than the original, much more personal and emotional.
15. Scary-The Movement: Another little local band thats starting to get a little bigger. Kind of a new spin on reggae, they have some real good songs.
16. Angel's Wings (original/live)-Social Distortion: This version is far better than the studio version. Mike Ness' description at the beginning makes me look at the song an entirely new way. Overall, I think this version has a lot more meaning and purpose than the one from the album.
17. My Baby Walked Out-The MoBros: One of there new songs. There is a pretty sweet video of this song from my school's talent show on youtube. As I said earlier, great kids with an incredible amout of potential.
18. Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World-Israel Kamakawiwo'ole: I dare someone to listen to this song and be said, you simply cant do it.
