Frankenmix 11.0 [Mar 07]
Desert Island Mix

Imagine you're stuck on a desert island (for the rest of your life). There are fifteen songs you can listen to, ever again. What songs would you want them to be?

1. A Chorus Line – "Nothing"
They all felt something,
But I felt nothing
Except the feeling
That this bullshit was absurd!

2. John Denver – "Leaving on a Jet Plane"
So, kiss me and smile for me.
Tell me that you'll wait for me.
Hold me like
You'll never let me go.

3. Linda Eder – "Is This Any Way to Fall in Love?"
I've got you not quite under my skin.
(Sorry, Mr. Porter.)
And when we dance beguines
Don't begin, darling.

4. Sarah Fimm – "Be Like Water"
Don’t chase ghosts. Don’t get too close.
Don’t get caught. Don’t get spent. Don’t get bought.
Don’t sell out. Don’t get bent.
Don’t fuck your best friend.

5. The Foundations – "Build Me Up, Buttercup"
Why do you build me up,
Buttercup, baby, just to
Let me down?

6. Guys and Dolls – "Luck Be a Lady"
A lady never flirts with strangers.
She'd have a heart, she'd be nice.
A lady doesnt wander all over the room
And blow on some other guys dice.

7. Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris – "Carousel"
We're on a carousel
A crazy carousel
And now we go around
Again we go around
And now we spin around
We're high above the ground
And down again around
And up again around
So high above the ground
We feel we've got to yell
We're on a carousel
A crazy carousel

8. The Lovin’ Spoonful – "Summer in the City"
Hot town, summer in the city.
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty.
Been down, isn't it a pity.
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city.

9. Nickel Creek – "The Lighthouse’s Tale"
And the waves crashing around me.
The sand slips out to sea.
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been, and what can never be.

10. The Scarlet Pimpernel – "Storybook"
Listen to me,
I have beautiful dreams I can spin you.
Dreams to linger within you.
Close your eyes and we'll ride my carousel.

11. Bruce Springsteen – "Thunder Road"*
Well now I'm no hero, that's understood.
All the redemption I can offer, girl,
Is beneath this dirty hood.
With a chance to make it good somehow,
Hey, what else can we do now?
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow back your hair.

12. Vienna Teng – "Lullaby for a Stormy Night"
And someday you'll know
That nature is so,
The same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land,
On forests and sand,
Makes the beautiful world that you'll see
In the morning.

13. Rufus Wainwright – "Hallelujah"
I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord,
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
The baffled king composing hallelujah.

14. Dar Williams – "The Babysitter’s Here"
But it's Saturday night, I can't sleep,
And we're watching the news.
She says "Do me a favor,
Don't go with a guy who would make you choose."
And I don't understand and she tries to explain
And all that mascara runs down in her pain,
'Cause she's leaving me...

15. Zanna, Don’t! – "Do You Know What It’s Like"
If someone were to come up to me
And say that they knew how
To love you better, I'd say,
'Buddy, step into the ring you're going down.'
I'd fight a guy for you.
I'd fight a girl for you.
I'd fight myself, you know I would,
If I thought it'd do any good.
Oh, do you know?

*I must live with the knowledge that my father went down the aisle to this song when he married my mother. And that I've worn the suit he wore when he married my mother. No wonder I'm warped.
