In honor of the update on Muxtape’s shutdown, and the apparent belief that some people have about playlist functions being revolutionary as far as online music service design goes, I was thinking that maybe a thread on “great segues” would be a fun project for the weekend. And then I had a better idea: Let’s make this thread something of an exquisite-corpse mix-tape constructed by the comment section, where I start off with two songs that sound great together and you take it from there. (OK, this’ll probably result in something that requires the recording capacity of a CD-R, but “mixtape” sounds much more endearing than a bunch of letters mushed together.) My selections, after the jump!
I came up with this segue on a mix tape that I made to be played in the bakery where I worked during high school. (It had a pretty liberal policy as far as what we were allowed to listen to, and I abused that policy to great advantage. This would result in many people hearing Mark Arm immediately after they attended Mass at the church across the street, although I’d argue that isn’t all that bad of a thing.) Now it’s your turn!
