Playlist from a trip to Googong Dam

July 7th, 2009 at 05:59pm

This afternoon I visited Googong Dam, where the-powers-that-be are building a spillway. Photos to follow tomorrow (it gives me a good reason to get the photo gallery back online), but in the meantime I thought you might find this interesting.

For the drive to Googong Dam, plus the walking around the dam, as well as the drive back via Weston Creek (where a free coffee was waiting to be claimed) and my post office box in Dickson (empty…can you believe that neither Senator Kate Lundy, nor a nameless minion, has bothered replied to my letter?), I took the iPod with me and set it to shuffle. I was pleased with the results, and thought I would share with you, the playlist that it created.

Hagenaar & Albrecht – What Would We Do (Original Mix)
The Cuckoo’s Nest – Medibank Private (We’re gonna flog it off)
The DJs of Euro Trance – Suck My Tube Steak (Hell N’ Back Mix)
Flash Brothers – Stay (Edit)

Franz Ferdinand – Come On Home
Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street
Sneaky Sound System – (Because of you people say I’m) Crazy
Janis Ian – Fly Too High
Joe Jackson – Is She Really Going Out With Him
Kenny Loggins – The Heat Is On
Wham – Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
Duran Duran – Hungry Like The Wolf
Cletus T. Judd – Trailer Park Woman
The Vogues – Five O’Clock World
Tina Turner – Simply The Best
Nancy Sinatra – These Boots Are Made For Walking
U2 – Angel Of Harlem
Robbie Williams – A Man For All Seasons
Harvey Norman Ad Bed (Version 15FullVox)
The Doobie Brothers – Takin’ It To The Street
Cat (Red Dwarf) – Tongue Tied
The DJs of Euro Trance – M.I.A.
Howard Goodall – Red Dwarf (End Theme)
Alavi – Smells Like Rerox
Boyz Noize – Oh! (A-Trak Remix)
The Irish Rovers – Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer
The Cuckoo’s Nest – He Cut The Hair of Armstrong (and swept it up with a broom)
The Potbelleez – Are You With Me (Hook ‘n’ Sling Mix)
? – Ghostbusters Theme (Techno Remix)
Jose Amnesia – Wouldn’t Change A Thing (feat. Jennifer Rene) [Retrobyte Clubmix Edit]
Bissen – Exhale (Edit)
Mike Foyle – Firefly (Original Mix)
Stevie Wonder – Master Blaster
Bond – Victory (Mike Batt Mix)
Slim Dusty – G’day G’day
Starshine – Feels Alright
Fats Waller – I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter
David Guetta – When Love Takes Over (feat. Kelly Rowland)
Boney M – Mary’s Boy Child
Various Artists (In The Mix) – The Trance Yearmix 2007 part one (which I skipped after a few minutes when it started playing a track which I had heard earlier on in the journey)
Dave Edmunds – Girls Talk
The DJs of Euro Trance (Trance Anthems) – Take It or Leave It

Most enjoyable, although I have to wonder if that list will surprise a few people.

    I think I’ve got a pretty eclectic taste in music, so, what surprises me is that out of that entire list, your iPod and mine have ony one song in common (if you can guess what it is Samuel I’ll shout you a coffee!) Except for this mystery song – and what I find even more surprising – is not only do I not have any of the songs, I don’t have any of the artists either!! What you have done is provide me with at least an hour’s worth of itunes-ing and You Tube-ing. Good one!

    I’ll take a stab at “Dave Edmunds – Girls Talk”?

    Incidentally, in regards to the Bond song on the list, I think the Magnus Fiennes mix is better.

    And I can think of one other song which is definitely on both of our iPods, “Of Montreal – Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games”. I know it is, because I got the song after hearing about it from you.

    Dave Edmunds & Girls Talk, eh? Either that song was on the CD I burnt for you, or you are freaking me out, ’round about now, Samuel!

  • 4. Samuel  |  July 7th, 2009 at 7:55 pm

    Nope, it’s not on the CD (I could have sworn that it was though). Looking at the track list, I must have been thinking of a cross between “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Jukebox in Siberia”…that would probably be enough to freak me out.

    VERY cool mix! Something for everyone there! Have you ever seen the original film clip for Nancy’s These Boots are Made for Walking? The song was butchered by Jessica Whatsername, but Nancy is the original and the best!


    I’d like to see one of Nancy’s original “Boots” clips as a song of the week!

    Whether I (or you, for that matter!) should be proud, I’m not sure…. Nonetheless, our ipods share nine in common from this list…

    Sneaky Sound System – (Because of you people say I’m) Crazy
    Janis Ian – Fly Too High
    Kenny Loggins – The Heat Is On
    Wham – Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
    Tina Turner – Simply The Best
    Nancy Sinatra – These Boots Are Made For Walking
    Ghostbusters Theme [although mine is the original]
    Bond – Victory [I prefer the original – the feelings it evokes reminds me of Bolero]
    Slim Dusty – G’day G’day

    Legshagger, no I haven’t seen it, but thanks for the link, I will check it out.

    I think the song is already on the list, but if it’s not, I’ll add it. Actually there are a few songs on that list which aren’t on the Musician(s) Of The Week list and should be.

    Davky, I’m surprised that I’m getting this many matches from a small subset of my iTunes library.

    I have the original Ghostbusters theme as well…I found this particular remix by accident and liked it, so kept it. No idea who remixed (is that a word?) it though.

    As for Victory, I haven’t heard the original which is odd considering that I have two derivations of it. I really do like Magnus’ version though.

    And G’day G’day…is any collection complete without it?
