Frankenmix explanation here. Files up in SendSpace soon now.

Frankenmix 14.0 [Jun 07]
Favorites Mix

1. Your favorite song this month: “Save Tonight” – Rockapella
Tomorrow comes
To take me away.
I wish that I,
That I could stay.
Girl, you know I've got to go.
Lord, I wish it wasn't so.

2. Your favorite instrumental number: “Danse Macabre” – Camille Saint-Saens
[You people should know by now that I'm crazy.]

3. A song that showcases your favorite singer: “The Christians and the Pagans” (live) – Dar Williams
And where does magic come from?
I think magic's in the learning.
'Cause now when Christians sit with pagans,
Only pumpkin pies are burning.

4. Your favorite band's best number: “Cecilia” – Simon & Garfunkel
Cecilia, you're breaking my heart.
You,re shaking my confidence daily.
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees.
I'm begging you please to come home.

[Learned this one at sleep-away camp, freak that I am.]

5. A song that could have been a favorite, if not for the lyrics: “The Boy With the Violin” – Buskin & Batteau
But the window was wide open.
There were footprints in the dew.
In her heart she was hopin',
But deep inside she knew.

[Huzzah, rape song! Roommate and I decided that this was even creepier than her "farmboy learns art of love from widowed older woman he works for" country song. Pretty violin part, though, and it vaguely inspired one of my IB Music compositions.]

6. A song that could have been a favorite, if not for the tune: “Dead Man’s Will” – Iron and Wine
May my love reach you all.
I locked it in myself and buried it too long.
Now that I come to fall,
Please say it's not too late,
Now that I'm dead and gone.

7. Your favorite song when you were fifteen: “Hallelujah” – Rufus Wainwright
It goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
The baffled king composing hallelujah.

[Basically listened to this one on repeat while I wrote my IB Music compositions in senior year. Yeah, I'm a freak, I know.]

I love the Danse Macabre, too. It's *fun,* which is not always true of classical music! M.

Heh, yeah.

It's part of my "spooky music" mix, which I put together last Halloween and is what I write Danse Macabre to.
