[music |Reel Big Fish - Victory Over Peter Bones (The Legend Of Alan Guile Versus Peter Bones)]

I want to compile a mix of songs about drinking or getting drunk and other related things (like hangovers and whatnot). Any good song ideas?

I have this cover of Down Under originally by Men at Work... an old friend put it onto a mix cd for me, and I want to use it for something, but I need to know who covered the song. It's a punk rock-ish version of it, and if anybody knows who might have done it, please let me know.

1. Have you met Miss Jones? - Robbie Williams (cause my last name is jones)
2. 99 red balloons - Goldfinger (it's not the Nena version because this version reminds me of my trip to Germany)

4. Wie es geht - Die Arzte (probably my favorite German punk band)
5. Moment of Weakness - Bif Naked
6. She has a girlfriend now - Reel Big Fish
7. Rock the Casbah - The Clash
8. Popular - Nada Surf
9. Prisoner of Society - The Living End
10. What happens? - Tiger Army
11. Build me up Buttercup - The Goops (fave song from fave movie)
12. What's up - 4 Non Blondes (I've always loved this song, and I kick ass at karaoke with it)
13. No Rain - Blind Melon (love love love)
14. Stray Cat Strut - Stray Cats (I used to put this on the jukebox at least 3-5 times a night when I worked at Burgerville)
15. Goodbye - Save Ferris (love love love Monique Powell)
16. Video Killed the Radio Star - PUSA
17. I melt with you - Modern English (my favorite 80's song ever)
18. Strange - The Living EnD

20. Just like Heaven - Goldfinger
21. Love Sandwich - Nerf Herder (so many good memories)

So what site or downloady thingy does everyone use to download music? I use Bearshare a lot, but they don't always have what I'm looking for or not enough sources to actually download some things... I'm curious if anyone uses a site that is really cheap, like cheaper than the iTunes music store where I can find more variety of stuff.

[music |Essence of Heather]

Hey guys sorry that nothing has been going on in the community for a while. I added a bunch of interests to our profile and uploaded a userpic to spice things up a bit.


For anyone who is unaware, Heather and I and a bunch of our friends decided a while back to make compilations called "Essence of (fill in your name)". They were super fun and sometimes difficult. Each ideally included some of your favorite songs and music that defined, descried, or related to you and aspects of your life. Well, recently we had the idea of expanding on that idea and making an “Essence of couples” series which would apply the same concept to couples in our group of friends. You’re welcome to make your own “essence of…“ Cds or expand on the concept however you want. Have fun.

Oh here’s the track lists for my essence of cds… I would post Heather’s too but I can’t find the actually track lists and it’d be way too tedious to try and listen to the Cd and try to figure out what all the songs are.

“Essence of Nathan”
1. Live Life - The Kinks
2. Spread Your Love - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
3. What It's like - Everlast
4. Going Under - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
5. Down In The Valley Woe - Jackie Greene
6. Selfish Man - Flogging Molly
7. They All Have Abondoned Their Hopes - Fishbone
8. Easy On Yourself - Drive-By Truckers
9. Mother's Day - Nada Surf
10. Weight Of The World - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
11. The World Has Turned And Left Me Here - Weezer
12. Always Love - Nada Surf
13. How Can I Keep From Singing - Enya
14. Bad Days - Flaming Lips
15. Good Day - Dresden Dolls
16. Hell No I Ain't Happy - Drive-By Truckers
17. Anything But Down - Sheryl Crow
18. Corduroy - Pearl Jam

[music |Rilo Kiley]

hello i make tons of mixes! the last mix i made was amazingly awesome because it featured amazingly awesome bands and artists like le tigre, JUDY AND MARY, Simon and Garfunkle, Daft Punk, Tegan and Sara, the beatles, Atmospere, Souxsie and the Banshees, The Fiery Furnaces, Mint Royale, YMCK, mcdonald duck eclair, Against Me!, capsule, boA, m-flo, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Convicted, Pine AM, and bikini kill. a pretty cool mix that i labeled with a sharpie to say "OH MAN THAT CLOUD IS LEAKING WHAT" with a drawing of a very happy cloud.

anyways, that wasnt really the point. (though if you havent heard any of these bands you should break open whatever downloading agent is sitting on your desktop and become more enlightened) THE POINT IS: i would like to make some music of my own that has been sitting around for a while and becoming moldy and does anyone have any ideas for some software on the internet that is really good for electonic music? any help would be muchly amazing!

so i have a friend that is moving away and i wanted to make a mixed tape for them. basically saying goodbye but hopefully not in an awful cheesy way. but if anybody has any suggestions for songs that are about leaving or moving they dont have to be sad or emotional anything really.
