Playlist: Alphabet Mix 1

Yesterday I did the Blistering Love Songs mix. I’m afraid I’ve caught the bug. I don’t know how many more mixes I’m going to do, but for right now, here’s another one.

Inspired by my experience with the previous mix, this is a new series I’m calling the Alphabet Mixes. Again, I don’t know how many of these I’ll do, but I’m planning ahead and calling it a series. An alphabet mix is 26 songs, whose artists’ names go in alphabetical order from A to Z.

So here’s Alphabet Mix 1.

“Lost” by Adam Schmitt
“In My Dreams” by Big Audio Dynamite
“I Wish, I Wish” by Cat Stevens
“I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” by Daryl Hall & John Oates
“Dance Commander” by Electric Six
“Jezebel” by Frankie Laine
“Cars” by Gary Numan
“Diggin’ In” by Harold Faltermeyer
“Closer To Fine” by Indigo Girls
“Bubble Toes” by Jack Johnson
“Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina & The Waves
“You Broke My Heart” by Lavender Diamond
“Mississippi Queen” by Mountain
“On A Plain” by Nirvana
“No More Tears” by Ozzy Osbourne
“House Of Love” by Page & Plant
“You Can’t Quit Me Baby” by Queens Of The Stone Age
“Fuck Shit Stack” by Reggie Watts
“Garden Grove” by Sublime
“The Statue Got Me High” by They Might Be Giants
“It’s My Turn To Fly” by The Urge
“Color Me Once” by Violent Femmes
“The Seeker” by The Who
“The Train” by King’s X
“How Can I Be Sure” by The Young Rascals
“Jesus Just Left Chicago” by ZZ Top

Couple notes. King’s X is totally cheating for the X spot. But the thing is, I own no music whose artist starts with X. None. I thought King’s X made a nice compromise. Also, In the Y spot, you’ve got a Rascals song. But when this song was originally released in 1967, they were known as the Young Rascals.

    You alphabetize by artist first name rather than last name?? You sir, are a madman.

    They’re just strings. Go for the first character, that’s what I say. Except for “the”. Go for the first character after the “the”. I would have gone by last name, but iTunes does not, so now I go by first name. Thanks, Apple.

    But like, how’s the mix?
