A Summer Mix: I Just Want To Be Your Friend

This sweet, sticky summer mix has been in the planning for several weeks now, but it seems appropriate to post it today in honor of International Friendship Day. I Just Want To Be Your Friend started out as just another group of songs from albums gotten recently, but the theme kinda grew out of it after noticing that there was more than one “friend” song in the playlist. The mix has a lot of melodic, happy pop (several of which came from CDs bought at the local Goodwill store) which I grouped together in pairs or threes with similar feels. For instance, the 1982 Soft Rock gem “Don’t Talk” by Larry Lee is paired with a tune by Julian Velard, a current musician whose upbeat style draws heavily from the time when the Atari 2600 was hot.

This was a blast to put together and I hope you enjoy it. Bert and Ernie were a no-brainer to feature on the mix cover. By the way, this and the previous three mixes have been uploaded to SendSpace as permanent files. Feel free to check them all out as well:

The download version below is a continuous mix, done as a single 74-minute file. Enjoy the tuneage!

4 Thoughts on “A Summer Mix: I Just Want To Be Your Friend

  1. I always love your mixes… but the SendSpace link doesn’t work for me. I get redirected to a long URL and then it just hangs. Any ideas? Does it definitely work for you?

  2. It hung for me as well – I will get on it Kris!

  3. It’s now working for me. This is a direct link so you don’t need to go to SendSpace first.

  4. hey Matt!Its been awhile since we traded.Lets get back in the groove shall we?Trish
