I never make mixes fast. I never do anything fast, except eat macaroni and cheese. But I especially don't make mixes fast. So when we got invited to Yoma's for dinner last night, and I wanted to bring something, and Victor said his favorite thing to get is music, I set out to make a cd in less than an hour. I'd never met him before. All I knew about him was that he's in a band, he likes Beatles-genre music among other things, his age is impossible to guess, and he hosts dinner parties every week with a mix of Japanese folk and foreigners. This is what I came up with:

1) "Frozen Tongue"- The Non-Commissioned Officers
Frozen Tongue
2) "Darlin'"- The Beach Boys
Darlin'
3) "Visit From the Dead Dog"- Ed Harcourt
Visit From The Dead Dog
4) "Stick With Me Baby"- Everly Brothers
Stick With Me Baby
5) "Heartbeats"- José Gonzales (the Knife cover)
Heartbeats
6) "Islands on the Coast"- Band of Horses
Islands on the Coast
7) "Sevilla tiene un color especial"- María del Monte y los del río
Sevilla tiene un color especial
8) "Sweet Talkin' Woman"- Electric Light Orchestra
Sweet Talkin' Woman
9) "I Can't Get My Head Around It"- Aimee Mann
I Can't Get My Head Around It
10) "Orange Colored Sky"- Nat King Cole
Orange Colored Sky
11) "Afterglow"- Travis
Afterglow
12) "Carry the Zero"- Built to Spill
Carry the Zero
13) "Wrapped in PIano Strings"- Radical Face
Wrapped In Piano Strings
14) "Light My Fire"- José Feliciano
Light My Fire
15) "Razzle Dazzle Rose"- Camera Obscura
Razzle Dazzle Rose

By the way, the dinner was delicious and Yoma is an incredibly kind host. He put on the cd right away and I felt a little nervous that I'd come off like a weirdo, but that's to be expected. He recognized some things, particularly the José Feliciano version of "Light My Fire" (which is so good and you should listen to if you haven't!); he said he'd recorded it off the radio many years ago! The live videos I'm finding on youtube are scratchy but here's the recording with a lovely candlelit image for you:
