"something's coming up in her garden, she's been talking that flower jargon..."

inspired by lalalaini, i've decided to compile either a mixtape or a mixtape of songs about flowers. the only real criteria is that flow[e]rs are mentioned in the song at least once really. yea i know, it's pretty broad cos how many songs are about roses? ha! so far, i've got:

flower jargon - dressy bessy
stem - hayden
dc song - aden ["you steal me flowers from the white house lawn"]

i think i exhausted my skills last night when i looked up songs to go on laini's mix of songs that have numbers in the title. or something like that. anyways, SO, now i need you lovely kids help for my own mix! purr lease?

ps dressy bessy recently put up photos of their entire tour with deathray davies. you can see them here! the cute boy i saw at the dc show was, sadly, not in any of the photos. sigh. then again, neither was i. sigh times two. i can see bo + lili in one of the shots tho!

Current Mood: lethargic
Current Music: aden - dc song

i love themed mixes! i almost did a garden mix once-- it wasnt *just* flowers, but flowers and veggies and all that good stuff. i made a list of songs to include (that i can't find now) but it never actually came to fruition (pun! ha). i also did a 5/7/9 mix that was all songs that took up one of those track numbers on a cd, a song with all names in the titles, a "water baby" mix for the summer that had watery/oceany things in the title, and lastly, i did one that was an "alphabet mix" with, in order, one song for each letter of the alphabet! fun fun. i miss having a stereo cause i cant do that anymore. blech!!

braid - a dozen roses

also,
jeff buckley - lilac wine

and there's a blur b-side, i can't think of the name of it, but it goes "daisy, daisy, give me your answer do... i'm half crazy all for my love of you..."

Here's a flower song:
"Rose Garden" Bauhaus


The flower theme is cool, but hear me out: it's similar to making a mixtape with only love songs in it. There's a bazillion songs with love in it, thus no challenge.

About seven years back on the awesome 88.5 WMNF public access station in Tampa, I distinctly remember an awesome set of songs where they asked the listener to guess the theme.

The theme was "Berlin." I heard some fuckin' great songs. Try it!

:-)

this doesn't relate here, but by the way: eight miles high is a byrds song, not gram parsons. gram parsons was briefly a member of the byrds during their "sweetheart of the rodeo" phase, but not responsible for writing or performing the song.
