For your consideration: A playlist.

Still in recovery, I was lurking on Twitter earlier this evening and saw that Ariana Osborne of Cartes Infernales had created a mix-tape for her wildly successful, soon-to-end Kickstarter.

What fun! I thought.  I could easily create a set-list for my own Kickstarter.  I set out immediately, only to quickly discover that I could think of almost no music that I like, and even less that fit with my story.  I had one or two that I knew I wanted to include, but getting beyond those was like pulling teeth! I did finally loosen up, and I’ve got a little something for you to spin.

Each song has a little something to do with Prairie City Response, either in feel or in content.  So crank it – there’s a lot of hustle and tussle in these tracks.

The Urge – My Turn to Fly

Neu! – Hero

The Prodigy – Breathe

Fear Factory – Cars

Easton Ellises – Endorphin

Toots & the Maytals – Time Tough

Goldfrapp – Strict Machine

Fela Kuti – Let’s Start

Refreshments – Banditos

Modern Lovers – She Cracked

Santigold – Creator

Neu! – Hallogallo

Iron & Wine – The Devil Never Sleeps

Woven Hand – Dirty Blue

Prodigy – Serial Thrilla

Black Violin ft. DMX – I’m a Ryder

Nirvana – Man Who Sold The World

Gorillaz – Double Bass

Can – Mary, Mary, So Contrary

AC/DC – It’s A Long Way To The Top

Now that you’ve checked out this mix, check into the Kickstarter! I’d love to reach $500 by midnight – help me make it happen!
