Frankenmix

As seen in ‘s LJ; for the new Frankenmix posted at ‘s LJ. Speak up if you want any of these.

The Tracklist:
1. A song about pride — “Gonna Make You Love Me” Ryan Adams

2. A song about envy — “A Perfect Sonnet” by Bright Eyes. “We’re singing I believe that lovers should be chained together; And thrown into a fire with their songs and letters; And left there to burn; Left there to burn in their arrogance.”

3. A song about anger — “I Can’t Get Behind That” by William Shatner/Henry Rollins. BILL: That’ll be six to eight weeks before delivery.
ROLLINS: The rising oceans, the warming temperatures!
BILL: The dying polar bears–no, tigers–in fifty years!
ROLLINS: Rising poison in the air and water!
BILL: I can’t understand why the price of gas suddenly rises when oil goes up…
ROLLINS: …but takes months to go down long after oil falls!
BILL: I can’t get behind any of that!

4. A song about avarice — “Gold Digger” by Kanye West (featuring Jamie Foxx)

5. A song about sloth — “Brian Wilson” by Barenaked Ladies

6. A song about gluttony — “This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore” by Elton John. OK, it’s more about the end of gluttony: “Riding on the storyline/ Furnace burning overtime.”

7. A song about lust — “Take Me Now (and She Said)” by Justin Timberlake. “And she said: right now.”

8. A song about faith — “Alice Childress,” Ben Folds Five
Alice the world is full of ugly things that you can’t change / Pretend it’s not that way; That’s my idea of faith.

Incidentally, also my idea of faith.

9. A song about hope — “I Hope Tomorrow is Like Today” by Guster. “You’re probably dreaming that you’re flying on/ Then you start to fall/ But then you rise and shine forever.”

10. A song about charity — “Preparations for the Last TV Fake” by Yann Tiersen for the Good-bye Lenin! soundtrack. No words, but in general I find it to be a good representative of the songs from this movie about giving — the effort that the son is going through in order to even things out for his mother, so that her transition back into reality is as smooth as possible.

11. A song about fortitude — “I Shall Believe” by Sheryl Crow. “It seems like every time I try to make it right it all comes down on me/
Please say honestly you won’t give up on me/ And I shall believe.”

12. A song about justice — “The Hurricane” by Bob Dylan.

13. A song about prudence — “How It Ends” by Devotchka from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. “You already know how this will end.”

14. A song about temperance — “Cocaine Blues” by Johnny Cash. “Come on you’ve gotta listen unto me/ Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be.”

    I do have them all! Let me know what you’d like, and it’s yours.

    And no worries; it’s not like I don’t have new music to carry me through. 😉
