The Rich Girls Are Weeping

03 January 2006

...In which I play (Z-list) celebrity DJ. This entry comes with a creative visualization exercise. I am throwing a New Year's Eve party, and you've arrived with a bottle of cheap champers and tasty hors d'ouvres. I mix you up a Negroni, because in a perfect world, everyone drinks Campari cocktails with me. And this is the mix that's playing on the stereo -- the best 37 songs of the year. (I just love odd prime numbers, don't you?)

First, there's the chipper songs that back the introductions and small talk, then the dance party bit, then moody come downs, then the super hipster indie girl section when it gets late and we all play Seven Minutes in Heaven. Ok, maybe not, but it would be fun, right?

There's easily another 37 great songs from 2005 that I could add, but really, odds are you'd only stay at my party for about 2.5 hours anyway, so there you go.

(BTW, There's a tiny duplication from my New Year's Eve post, but it's negligable. There's also one old, long-lost song that finally saw release in 2005.)

Presented for your consideration as a .zip file, this mix will only be available for a few days. Don't break the server, please! (And please let me know if you have problems downloading or playing any of the files. This is going out without a beta, so apologies if there's any funky business.)

And that's it for the 2005 recapping activities. From now on, it's all about looking forward. Promise.

Cindy Hotpoint's Best of 2005 Mix. (206 MB!! **BOTH LINKS FIXED NOW**) (Playlist. Please play in this order!) (Here's the playlist as an .xml file for iTunes users.)

iTunes is being weird about the playlist for me, too, but I have no idea why...maybe export it as an XML file instead?

In any case, I just reordered all the tracks by hand.
