I’m not a huge fan of Halloween, but I am a big fan of songs about satan, witches, werewolves, mummies, and other spooky things.

I really wanted to make an all black metal album focusing on the war between the Viking black metal from Norway and  Death black metal from Sweden, but decided that songs about Odin and church burning were really for a different playlist.  P.S. if you play this record backwards there is a nice recipe for chocolate zucchini bread.

Justin’s Playlist IV Favorite Roadtrip Songs

Wow, sorry for the delay.  The start of school caught me completely off guard and I am way behind on everything in my life.  However, that didn’t stop me from putting together an amazing playlist for all your future road trips – it just delayed things a bit.

I almost always fall asleep when I’m driving, so I need a raucous mix of high energy pop and great sing along songs to keep me going.  I hope you enjoy my travel/ road trip playlist!

Ryan’s Playlist IV – Favorite Road Trip Songs

In Rate My Playlist on September 30, 2009 at 6:28 pm

On the eve of a big road trip this weekend (and after a much needed break to focus on other areas of our lives), we are back with a new playlist for you!  We decided on the theme of our Favorite Road Trip songs a couple months ago when aspirations of a Labour Day vacation were still fresh on the mind…boy were we off.

We pushed forward anyways and here you go; a couple songs about hitting the open road and a handful of others that help me get to the final destination…no matter how many KM’s away.

Justin’s Playlist III – Favorite Cover Songs

In Rate My Playlist on August 23, 2009 at 4:40 pm

These are some of my favorite songs re-imagined  by  my favorite artists.  Some songs are done in completely new ways, like Brazilian Seu Jorge’s(aka Knockout Ned from City of God) acoustic cover of Bowie’s, “Starman.” Other songs are loving homages to the original, like Edmontonian Krystle Dos Santos‘ cover of Nina Simone’s, “Ain’t Got No.” I had no idea some songs even existed until contemporary artists covered them: Nirvana’s cover of Bowie’s “The Man who sold the world.”

Of course, how could a list of cover songs not include a cover of Cohen’s Hallelujah? Rufus Wainwright, K.D. Lang, and of course Jeff Buckley all do great versions, but, I decided to include a less popular Cohen song: “Famous Blue Raincoat,” as covered by Hayden.
