Not so much a mixtape as it is a setlist

Friday Summertime Setlist

1. Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter (This one I associate the most with the summer. The guitar tremolo in the intro just gives an image of heatwaves rising off the hot pavement).
2. DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Summertime
3. Soul Coughing - Soft Serve
4. Islands - Jogging Gorgeous Summer
5. The Sea & Cake - Shoulder Length
6. Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes

Most of you can listen to it here on Grooveshark.

If I may recommend, for the very same reason:

...although hacking "Grass" off the end of this video is a hangin' offense, so I'm putting that here, too.

BTA, how do you get these? All I've been able to do is export playlists into text files, and then edit them to not be a complete mess.

Happy Mix

In therapy we have to create something called a "Crisis Survival Box". We put stuff in it that will help us when we are upset and want to do not so nice things (in my case, Drink, Smoke the MJ, or harm myself).

So, I completed that assignment this weekend and I included a Happy Mix :)

1) Don't Panic - Coldplay
2) Getting Better - The Beatles
3) Sit and Wonder - The Verve
4) Things I don't understand - Coldplay
5) You ain't goin nowhere - Bob Dylan (I used the version from The Basement Tapes, and now I think I should use either the cover version from the I'm Not There soundtrack or possible another version Dylan does)
6) Tell Yourself - Natalie Merchant
7) I Got Id - Pearl Jam
8) Tangled Up in Blue - Bob Dylan
9) Red Mosquito - Pearl Jam
10) Clocks - Coldplay
11) Inside Job - Pearl Jam
12) Life is Sweet - Natalie Merchant
13) Lucky Man - The Verve
14) Present Tense - Pearl Jam
15) Amsterdamn - Coldplay
16) Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve
Anais is the Coolest Butterfly I know  ;D

I was reading a mixlist article on the onion and it reminded me of this.  OK, Happy.  In no particular order:

Bachelor Pad - Fantastic Plastic Machine
The Happy Song - Liam Lynch
Kiss My Ring - Frank Black
We Have A Theme Song - The Pillows
Super Rad - The Aquabats
Life's A Happy Song - from The Muppets
Kandy Pop - Bis
Tonight, Tonight - The Smashing Pumpkins
Polite Dance Song - The Bird and the Bee
Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
I Wanna Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
Let's Dance - David Bowie
Enid - The Barenaked Ladies
The Birdhouse in Your Soul - They Might Be Giants

Since we are in the middle of a list of crap for 80's movies, let's make an 80's movie music mixtape (songs don't actually have to be from 80's movies.  For example, that Die Hard song).

Oddly I haven't posted these before, though they were all 'pre-made' (back when I was 'therapizing').  Since most people I treated had neglect or some kind of abuse (emotional, physical or sexual) as a source for their difficulties, I came up with these tune collections.  Music has a way of getting to blocked emotions easier than other methods, so they were suggested for those who needed an assist actually feeling what was necessary to process it.  [They were also actually designed for two sides of a 90 minute cassette, so truly are "mix tapes".]


Music for Survivors - Tunes Specifically About Abuse/Recovery


It is believed that all of the lyrics in these songs were written specifically to address abuse survivorship, or the kinds of adaptations that come with post-abuse life.  In addition, the moods and evoked emotions fit the range and intensity of feelings found with abuse survivors.

   --- SIDE A ---

Nowhere to Stand         k.d.lang
   Initial facing of the pain, and the lifetime repetition of unhealed abuse.
Working Class Hero         John Lennon
   Examination of child-rearing practices' effects.
What's the Matter Here?      10,000 Maniacs
   'Outsider's' view of child abuse.
Bad Wisdom            Suzanne Vega
   Appears to be about the 'discovery' of childhood sexual abuse.  The "bad wisdom" may be premature sexualization.  (The mother's 'cold' looks, and suspicion that the child instigated the contact, are discussed in the literature as being common reactions of adults to a child's revelations of abuse if the parent has not dealt with their own abuse history.)
Silent Legacy            Melissa Etheridge
   
Jeremy               Pearl Jam
   
Dance Without Sleeping      Melissa Etheridge
   'Action' addictions; compulsive behaviors to avoid feeling and confronting one's emotions.
Digging in the Dirt         Peter Gabriel
   Working for memory retrieval: with both pain and loneliness.
Ruins               Melissa Etheridge
   

   --- SIDE B ---   

Outside Myself         k.d.lang
   Dissociation of feelings from experience.  k.d. lang captures the intensity of this split perfectly.
Tears               Nona Hendryx
   Confusion over cognition versus emotion as the basis for decisions/life.  The dissociation of thought and feeling, and confusion about which is 'real'.
Wash Me Clean         k.d.lang
   Survivors feeling 'dirty', with their body being something to be avoided and ignored, due to its seeming betrayal during abuse.
You Cause As Much Sorrow      Sinead O'Connor
   The intensity and durability of the pain from childhood abuse.
Precious Pain            Melissa Etheridge
   Acknowledgement that the holding to emotional pain (rather than working it through) keeps one trapped by it.
Love to Be Loved         Peter Gabriel
   The isolation of being a survivor (prior to establishing a close support system.)
Feel So Different         Sinead O'Connor
   
Visions of You            Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart
   
Keep It Precious            Melissa Etheridge
   Being able to put the abuse largely behind oneself; an appreciation for those who have been of help during healing; those that have been there to support the survivor in their need, but who were willing to encourage and allow the survivor to become and remain free.


Music for Survivors  II - More Tunes Specifically About Abuse/Recovery

I Need You            Eurythmics
   
Kiss That Frog            Peter Gabriel
   This tune evokes the surfacing of abuse memories; with a great deal of anger in the music.  (While the tune appears to be about a male abuser 'prompting' a female victim to interact with his penis, the emotions of horror and anger at the event which are evoked can be the same for both male and female victims.)  Note that at the end when the victim is finally coerced into touching him, "Kiss that frog - and you will meet your prince," that, half way through this line, when the kiss would be presumed to occur, that the voice turns into that of a frog: the abuser has been revealed as/transformed to an animal or beast.
Alive               Pearl Jam
   
Numb                  U2
   Dissociation of emotion or reactivity to one's life.
No Emotion            Nona Hendryx
   The desire/need to disconnect from one's emotions.
She's Leaving Home         The Beatles
   
The Unforgiven            Metallica
   Regrets/sadness/anger over what was and what might have been.
Season of Hollow Soul      k.d.lang
   Depression surrounding abuse memories and the pain of healing.  Included is a vague hope that it would all be worth it eventually.
I'm So Afraid            Fleetwood Mac
   
I Want Your (Hands On Me)   Sinead O'Connor
   Sexual obsession; with the music, possibly violence-tinged sexuality.
Garden               Pearl Jam
   
Blood Sings            Suzanne Vega
   The re-affirmation of one's being alive by seeing one's blood during self-injury (from the blood's viewpoint).
Enter Sandman            Metallica
   Fear of going to bed/sleep for survivors who were traumatized by night-time attacks.
Aqua                  Eurythmics
   Angry withdrawal from others.  Despair: thoughts of suicide as a 'reasonable alternative' to the pain.
Sad But True            Metallica
   
Release               Pearl Jam
   
Place Your Hand         Melissa Etheridge
   Recovering healthy touch/sexuality following abuse.
Rearviewmirror            Pearl Jam


EDIT:  Something I forgot to include in this post is that each of the two mix tapes was designed to show one of the possible progressions of awareness and healing from abuse or neglect.  In other words, the first tune (on each of the two 90-minute tapes the sequences were designed for) was the closest to having just realized that abuse or neglect was in one's past and caused disruption of one's behavior, and the last tune on each was the closest to being through with processing the traumas.

Since I'm getting ready to drive to CT for Thanksgiving I guess this is a good place to post good driving song lists.

  The MP3 CD I use in my car most of the time is a pain to generate a list from, so here's a dump of the old 2GB iPod mini I keep in the car for long trips (200+ tracks):

My favorite driving song is probably Metallica's Blackened. I often listen to it on my way to work in the morning; gets the blood flowin'. It's a fun steering wheel drumming song, too.

I like the idea behind that; however, I as a survivor, I would not listen to that much Kd Lang.....


I say that, and I will probably youtube all these songs later today.


To add to your list: Inside Job, Present Tense, and Footsteps by Pearl Jam. Better Things (originally done by the Kinks, but I like the Pearl Jam version.....duh). Also, I love listening to the song "Survivor" by Destiny's Child and "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor.

I'm glad they sound like they might be helpful.  If you are going to find those tunes, please be very careful to emotionally protect yourself.  Many are quite emotionally involving and may serve as triggers for you.

Possibly listen to them one at a time with enough of a break before the next one to see how each one affects you.  I don't want you (or anyone else) to get overwhelmed by them.
