Moulin Rouge -- the show must go on

This Is Not Your Year :: A mix for Spring 2011

More than half of this mix ended up being "Bawww I had to stop seeing a guy I really liked LET ME LISTEN TO ALL THE ANGSTY MUSIC NOW THIS IS CLEARLY A PRODUCTIVE USE OF MY SEMESTER." Oh well.

1. Old Crow Medicine Show :: Wagon Wheel
Rock me, mama, like the wind and the rain
Rock me, mama, like a south-bound train
Hey, mama rock me

2. Bomb the Music Industry :: It’s Official! We’re Boooorrrriiiing!!!
You can't solve anything just by saying someone's wrong
Yeah, behind your back we're enemies, face to face we get along

3. Disciplines :: Best Mistake
I'm on my way down a road less traveled
I'm on my way to a destiny unraveled
This could be the best mistake that I ever made

4. Rilo Kiley :: Portions For Foxes
And you're bad news
My friends tell me to leave you
That you're bad news, bad news, bad news

5. Lady Gaga :: I Like It Rough
You've got me wondering why I
I like it rough, I, I like it rough

6. Thao :: Body
It's good to see you, it's too good to see you
But what am I, just a body in your bed?
Won't you reach for the body in your bed?

7. Kate Nash :: Take Me To A Higher Plane
I feel worried that my brain is just a fool in your sick game
So I will never open my heart

8. Camera Obscura :: Lloyd I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken
Hey Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken
'cause I can't see further than my own nose at this moment
Jealousy is more than a word now I understand
I know you can stay a girl by holding a boy's hand

9. Arctic Monkeys :: Fluorescent Adolescent
Oh that boy's a slag, the best you ever had
The best you ever had is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem

10. Belle and Sebastian :: I’m A Cuckoo
Breaking off is misery, I see a wilderness for you and me
Punctuated by philosophy and wondering how things could've been
I'd like to see you but really I should stay away
And let you settle down

11. Carbon Leaf :: What About Everything
What about fortune and fame? What about your love to obtain?
What about the ring? What about...?

12. The Weepies :: Not Your Year
Every day it starts again, you cannot say if you're happy
You keep trying to be
Try harder - maybe this is not your year

13. Anthony David :: Cold Turkey
Cold turkey, you can't expect me to quit, do you baby?
Cold turkey, feelings don't go away so easy
Just a little more time and I swear I'll leave you alone
But tonight I got this jones coming down

14. We’re About 9 :: Don’t Have To Talk
You look at me like I'm asleep
You look at my hands, my head, my feet
I'm fascinated by your cheeks...
Don't have to talk about it, don't have to talk about it
We don't have to talk about it now

15. Florence and the Machine :: Hurricane Drunk
I'm going out, I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd I see you with someone else,
I brace myself cause I know it's going to hurt,
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse.

16. LCD Soundsystem :: New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down
New York, I love you but you're bringing me down
Like a death of the heart...Jesus, where do I start
But you're still the one pool where I'd happily drown

17. M. Ward :: Rollercoaster
Rollercoaster, we was the best of times
Rollercoaster, we was the worst of times too
Because you lift me up so high high high
It's the most unbelievable ride

18. Rilo Kiley :: Plane Crash in C
I have no idea what's going on lately
And I just wish you would come over and explain things

19. Frou Frou :: Hear Me Out
I'm a slow motion accident lost in coffee rings and fingerprints
I don't wanna feel anything but I do
And it all comes back to you

20. Tegan and Sara :: Soil, Soil
All you need to save me
Call and I'll be curled on the floor hiding out from it all
And I won't take any other call
I feel like a fool so I'm going to stop troubling you

21. Vampire Weekend :: Campus
Then I see you, you're walking 'cross the campus
Cruel professor studying romances
How am I supposed to pretend I never want to see you again?

22. The Fratellis :: Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night
Baby got the bones and a hand me down
Says her heart is black but her eyes are brown

23. Josh Ritter :: Good Man (for cornerspotlight <3)
Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I'm a good man for ya, I'm a good man

24. The Decemberists :: All Arise!
Baby wants a new spin, baby wants a broken heart
Hear you found the lynchpin to keep it all from falling apart

25. Neon Trees :: Animal
Here we go again - I kinda wanna be more then friends
So take it easy on me, I'm afraid you're never satisfied

26. Stars :: Look Up
Your boy is like a memory with some sense of touch and a melody
Your girl she's a renegade
A hurricane that keeps you there, safe

27. The Beatles :: Don’t Ever Change
You never wear a stitch of lace, your powder's never on your face
You're always wearing jeans, except on Sunday
So, please, don't ever change

28. Elephant Parade :: For You
You slide across the MoMa
We dance into a coma
I like you
And I don't even have to
I don't even have to try


I love so many of these songs it is not even funny. :)
I am excited to listen to this. I was thinking about making a mix about regret, myself. (I always think about making mixes and then remember I don't know enough music.)
