Calling a burning program Nero is a funny analogy

I created my first successful (in my view) no-repeat mix, after several shitty experiments with genre or using 4 bands 12 times. I found the tracks led nicely into one-another for the most part, and its going to be in my car for quite awhile. I figured a good mix should constitute a few of the following rules

1. Songs you would want together (obvious, but I honestly haven't been doing that)
2. Songs that lead nicely into one-another

I realize that making a mix is an art, or at least was launched into said status publicly with the book 'High Fidelity', or just Nick Hornby in general. Someday I wish to perfect this skill


1. My Bloody Valentine.............only shallow
2. The Moving Units..................scars
3. m83 ........................................america
4. Eastern Youth..........................voices
5. Radiohead ...............................let down
6. Red House Painters................have you forgotten?
7. The French Kicks...................crying just for show
8. The Walkmen..........................little house of savages
9. Dismemberment Plan..............what do you want me to do?
10. Les Savy Fav.........................daily dares
11. The Black Keys.....................everywhere I go


tell me what you think

"Let Down" was going to be the first single off OK, but they pulled it at the last minute--something to do with the video; like the film got messed up or something. Now, they hardly ever play it live anymore. I've heard shows where people have yelled it out as a request and they just laughed and played something else. Too bad, considering it's such an awesome song, but I guess when you've got as many awesome ones as they do...

True, as i have found that every song on OK computer is pretty much at an equal level of awesome, although i still think street spirit is their best
