Any Major Favourites 2015 Vol. 1

Any Major Covers

In my younger days I was an enthusiastic mix-tape compiler. The lucky girls who were the objects of my affection would be blessed with my carefully compiled cassettes. I have no doubt whatsoever that they profoundly appreciated the education they were receiving, never mind if they liked Whitney Houston and I inducted them into the delights of Prefab Sprout or The Rock Lobsters. Funny enough, I ended up marrying none of them. Not that my future wife escaped my aggressive mix-taping, but by the time we were dating, I had the consideration to compile songs in her favoured genres.

As the regular reader will know, I still enjoy making mix-tapes. I love selecting the music, even as I hate omitting good songs to keep within my set length of one standard CD-R. I enjoy sequencing the songs; it’s perhaps the most creative part of the process. And I love playing the mixes, mostly in my car.

Here is a compilation of songs that featured on compilations that ran during the past year, with a second mix coming next week.

    Please please PLEASE tell me you’re not switching over to Rapidgate. It is fraught with pop-ups and obstacles and is anything but “rapid” as its name implies it should be.

    I have been having a LOT of issues attempting to download this!
    1. Tried about ten times since yesterday with nothing happening!
    2. Kept re-setting
    3. Eventually goy the link…….now keeps wanting “retry” and will not!
    Can not download.

    I have to agree with the O.B.Dan comment too.

    How strange. I’ve never had any trouble at all with Rapidgator. Didn’t get pop-ups and the download started well.

    I agree that Rapidgate is way worse than the site you were using — I gave up trying to get it to downloqad without having to pay for the premium service.

    I wondered why you’d switched from Zippy but Rapidgator works fine for me (I’m a premium user) so many thanks for the compilation of tracks from previous compilations – as incestuous as some of the stuff I put together for the car! Cheers!

    OK, I’ve uploaded the file to Zippyshare.

    Zippy can be an utter nightmare to upload to sometimes.

    Thanks for the switch to zippyshare, I too had troubles with rapidgator. But mainly, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the comp, picked it up with the new link. Hate Rapidgator.
    BTW, are you using the zippyshare uploader? I use it and it’s pretty painless in my experience. Creates a log with filenames and links you can cut and paste from.
