Pipeline People, your creation is ready. I have published it as an iMix on iTunes, and it should be available in an hour or two. Just look for “Pipeline People Mix 1.0”. There are 18 songs in all, the last one provided offline by Jane: “The Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Song” by the Flaming Lips.
I took the liberty (necessity, really) of sequencing the mix. I have listened to all of the songs, though not yet all the way through as a whole. Only time will tell if this mix has staying power with any given listener, but I think it’s worth your while to go check it out. If you don’t have access to iTunes, let me know via comment below and I’ll work something out with you to get a hard copy, although since we did exceed the 60 (and 80) minute limit I wouldn’t be able to fit the entire mix on one CD. But, I have an ingenius plan to sidestep that issue by removing some songs.
The mix looks like this:
- “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song”, by the Flaming Lips
- “Personal Jesus”, by Johnny Cash
- “Gray”, by the Heartless Bastards
- “Guns of Brixton”, by the Clash
- “Quizas, Quizas, Quizas”, by Nat King Cole
- “Joker & the Thief”, by Wolfmother
- “Same Kooks”, by the Hold Steady
- “Barricades and Brickwalls”, by Kasey Chambers
- “One of These Days”, by the Doves
- “10001110101″, by Clutch
- “The Death of Country Music”, by the Waco Brothers
- “Chumpy”, by The Clean
- “Everything Is Under Control”, by Coldcut
- “Hours”, by TV On the Radio
- “Rollerskate Skinny”, by Old 97’s
- “Alright” by Supergrass
- “A Really Good Time”, by Roxy Music
- “Thinking of a Dream I Had”, by the Walkmen
This has been a blast to put together, one of the best things we’ve done with Pipeline. The last couple of days has been one of those times when I sometimes stopped and thought about the age we live in, where we can form a community out of thin air, decide to make a mix tape for the hell of it, have the songs magically appear, and then make it all available in a matter of minutes. It costs 99 cents a song to make the magic happen, but that seems a reasonable tradeoff.
