listen and weep
PALE IMMORTAL SOUNDTRACK
Last week we were talking about music and books. I was lamenting over not getting a CD made for PI. I'm constantly tweaking the Pale Immortal blog, and i've put up some mp3 links with several of the photos, and I'll probably continuously add content and revamp. You might not see a new post, but within the blog things will change.

but then i happened to think of itunes and imix where you can create your own mix, put it on the itunes site where it stays for a year. i spent a couple of days choosing music. then arggghhh! half of the songs weren't even on itunes! back to the drawing board. the one i really wanted in there was husker du's she floated away. that would have been perfect.
also the breeder's version of happiness is a warm gun. but neither were available.
i finally settled on the following mix. this itunes link should take you to the Pale Immortal soundtrack. I also put up another version with fewer tunes so it wouldn't be as expensive. all you have to do is click on other mixes by this user.
edit: i'll post the list here for people who don't have itunes.
Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere - Neil Young
Motor Away - Guided By Voices
Wasn't Born to Follow - The Byrds
Nature Boy - Big Star
Pass This On - The Knife
21st - The Chambermaids
Hey - Pixies
Girl from the North Country - Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash
Damage - Yo La Tengo
Cuts You Up - Peter Murphy
Ocean - The Velvet Underground
if you go to itunes, you can listen to samples of all of the songs to get an idea of how they work together.
