Friday Mixtape #11 - If You Leave - mp3

This week I've put together a big diverse mix of songs that are singable and pop and fun...

Listen and/or download below:
Friday Mixtape #11 - If You Leave

not an indie or electro band in sight, in fact, it's really more like a bizarre a trip to the present via the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s... in fact, the only contemporary song in the mix actually sounds like it could be 40 years old... yet somehow, despite the huge differences in all the songs, they all somehow work together - which could be down to the heavy emphasis on the British. Of course we had to end up with a little tribute to MJ, when he was lovely and young and had an innocent soprano.

Friday Mixtape #9 - Sweet Night - mp3

Quite a departure from last week's mix, this mix is for late nights of getting dressed up, throwing eyeliner across your face (or guyliner if you're into that sort of thing), heading into a city centre layered with rain, and dancing like a lunatic in a dark venue inevitably located under the ground. It might be summer, but this ain't no sunny party mix.
