Any Major Week Vol. 1

November 14th, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

 

This is one of the earlier themed mixes I’ve posted, back in 2011 when young Rebecca Black got heaps of ugly abuse for liking Fridays and ordering seating arrangements in cars (read my defence of Black). I’m re-upping this mix because it’s so good that I still return to it occasionally — what a trio of starter tracks! I’ve made myself a follow-up mix which I also enjoy; it will be posted some time in the future.

The theme is obvious: songs about the days in the week, in sequence until time of the standard CD-R runs out, on a Saturday night.

As always, CD-R length, home-dated covers, PW in comments.

1. Marvin Sease – Friday (2001)

    I’m a Soul music lover and enjoy all your Soul Selections but also I’m more and more eclecthical on my musical taste grace to, among other reasons, your great blog. Many thanks for your “labor of love”. (Despite the fact my favorite “week track” don’t appears here, “Stormy Monday” by Lou Rawls feat. Les McCann… :-))

    A great salute from Tarragona!
