Some Music

Back in 2007, as I was preparing for the WBC, I decided I wanted to do something interesting with the music.  I’m guessing a few of you have probably heard the music I ended up with but I thought I’d post up something else.

I have a weak spot for a childish mashup, and so I got in touch with a DJ whose mixes I like and asked him for 15 minutes of music for a coffee competition.  I didn’t give much other instruction and I am very grateful for what he sent though it turned out to be a bit too coffee heavy for practical use.

Still – it is a bit of fun, and a diverting and silly 15 minutes of music.

Check out some of his other mixes here.

On a sidenote – if anyone can name the entire tracklist (and I really don’t expect anyone to) then I’ll send them a load of coffee.

  1. I used the Frank Sinatra track in my set last year, didn’t do me a lot of good mind you!

    Violent Femmes, Prince, Beastie Boys, Audioslave, Bee Gee’s (Java Talking?!), The Strokes, Walker Brothers, Macy Gray, Blur… that’s probably not even half of them though.

  2. Denis Leary almost made me fall out my chair laughing, just fyi

  3. i was making my own music for tokyo and copenhagen performance, didnt do god for me cos judges were not listening to music at all, i was programing all, and times, and voices such as electro voice cappuccino to tell me when is what etc…anyway, i still have emulator 3, if you need music, here i am…

  5. Whats WBC? World band contest or something? By the way, yeah great music and don’t stop ya?

  6. That mix made me laugh. I cannot imagine competing to that mix. However it did remind me of a song one of my friends from Florida sent me. Taylor the Latte Boy. I hope it brings as much laughter to you as it did to me. As far as music to compete to for me. I don’t know that it gets much better than Kaki King or Jon Brion.

  7. That is some great music all to the topic of coffee, my favorite song from it is black hole sun

  8. Im new here at your site and subscribe to your feed at once. This is a very unique blog as I can say. And one more, there is no Coffee contest or something (I think) here at my place.
