I love the tv show Mad Men on AMC. I think it’s one of the freshest and most interesting shows on tv for a long time. It’s great drama and I really love watching the behind the scenes of the advertising industry in the 60s. Such a unique concept.

The music is always fun and interesting on Mad Men so I figured I should come up with my own mix of tracks inspired by what I’ve heard on the show. I’m really curious as there’s been some really cool obscure cuts so I’ve researched, read about and learned what tracks they are playing.

Why not start the mix with the RJD2 remix of the great Astrud Gilberto song right? Well you all probably know RJD2 did the theme track to Mad Men called A Beautiful Mine so it was pretty convenient to include this track from Verve Remixed 3. We can end the mix with A Beautiful Mine (Instrumental) by RJD2!

Leslie Gore doing Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows was mostly inspired by the 2 Mad Men kids I thought it was perfect here. Although Tonight You Belong To Me is very cute and has so much childish qualities to it too but I thought a better representation of a song for the kids was the Leslie Gore song.

I wanted to include Yma Sumac because I heard an Yma Sumac song on the show. I don’t remember which song it was but you can’t miss Yma Sumac as her voice is pretty obvious.

Marilyn Monroe ended up in the mix because it was one of the subplots in the show so it had to be included. When you look at the rest of the tracklist you can see every track makes sense to be included on the mix. I love the show so much I had great fun putting together this mix! What do you think?

Could this be the soundtrack to Mad Men? Maybe!

It was so much fun to put this mix together! Enjoy.

Best Christmas Mix 1

Posted by admin in Playlist

Well what makes the perfect Christmas mix??? Include the best, brightest most cheerful, lively tracks that ever existed. Ok these are not your average Christmas hits that we hear over and over every year at the mall or at the dentists office. Ok they are the same tracks but these are special versions. Unique interpretations of your traditional holiday garbage that is fed to us for 5.99 special disc price at Walmart or some other crap store!

I especially love the Ralph Myerz Remix of Sleigh Ride by Ferrante & Teicher – it’s best remix of an old Christmas track from yesteryear I’ve heard for a really long time. It’s got most of the music as it was but Ralph Myerz and gang have added a great dance beat to it. And I absolutely love the vocals as the original does not have any. It’s perfection! Do seek it out and listen to it at your next Christmas Party. Ok?

Posted by admin in Playlist

Alright … you absolutely need some banging dance tracks for a workout. Right? You can’t be listening to some twangy country music?? No. You can’t be listening to the classics?? No. Well at least I can’t and wont. I’ll take some pumping dance tracks like the list below. It’s a fun fast mix – perfect for a fast paced workout. Try it you’ll like it!

Things get jamming with this awesome remix of Kelis’s Bossy by Alan Braxe & Fred Falke. I’ve been a big fan of these guys from way back and everything they do they do it 100%. Remixes and their original productions. Theire pretty amazing! And this remix is just quite amazing. It’s nothing like the original which I really dig!

Some of the other key stand out cuts here in this mix are The Final by Phil Fuldner – being very discoey with the sound of horns. The classic trance track Netherworld which is one of my all time faves. So cool! Space Shanty by Leftfield off their masterpiece Leftism and There’s Nothing I Won’t Do (Carl Cox Remix) by JX.

These tracks make a great collection for a fast paced workout. The total running time of this playlist is 1:18 so it’s perfect for a long workout session. So Enjoy!
