Sounds From the Lost Abbey 02

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the second of quite a few to come!

  1. LaTour: People Are Still Having Sex
  2. Right Said Fred: I’m Too Sexy (Extended Club)
  3. Tori Amos: Professional Widow (Armand’s Star Trunk Funkin’)
  4. Club 69: Drama (Club 69’s Full Drama)
  5. Nine Inch Nails: Sin (Long)
  6. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: The Days of Swine and Roses
  7. KMFDM: Naïve
  8. Siouxie and the Banshees: Fear of the Unknown
  9. Garbage: Stupid Girl
  10. Blur: Girls and Boys (Pet Shop Boys 12″)
  11. New Order: True Faith
  12. Ministry: Everyday (Is Halloween)

Difficult Listening Hour 07 (120BPM)

This weekend’s new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 115 and 125 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

  1. Collide ‘The Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum’
  2. Depeche Mode ‘Halo (Comfortable)’
  3. Nitzer Ebb ‘Captivate’
  4. Art of Noise ‘Kiss (Art of Noise)’
  5. Eurythmics ‘Beethoven (I Love to Listen To) (Dance)’
  6. Erasure ‘Always (Hey)’
  7. Delerium ‘Flowers Become Screens (Frequency Modulation)’
  8. Echo and the Bunnymen ‘Bring On the Dancing Horses’
  9. Edelweiss ‘Bring Me Edelweiss (12″)’
  10. Young MC ‘Bust A Move’
  11. Rock Master Scott and the Dynamic Three ‘The Roof is On Fire’
  12. Blur ‘Girls and Boys (Pet Shop Boys)’
  13. Dee-Lite ‘Groove is In the Heart (Hot Tracks)’
  14. Lipps, Inc. ‘Funkytown ’91 (Hot Tracks)’
  15. Sarah Vaughan ‘Peter Gunn (Max Sedgley)’
