N's 12th Music Mix

This mix is heavy on vinyl. I have marked with an asterisk* songs on vinyl.


  1. *"Bad To Me" is a Lennon/McCartney song which John and Paul wrote for the fellow Liverpool band Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas. I found this 45 rpm single in my basement in a cardboard box of my landlord's belongings.
  2. *Walking on Sunshine: Katrina & The Waves
  3. *"Midnight Blue" Lou Gramm is the lead singer of Foreigner. His solo "career" is nearly nonexistent, except for this awesome song from his solo debut LP Ready or Not. I found this LP in a cutout bin at the old HMV music store in Harvard Square.
  4. *Hungry Heart: Bruce Springsteen
  5. *"No One Is To Blame" Howard Jones recorded two versions of this song. He charted a hit with the re-make, which was produced by Phil Collins (and features Phil on drums and backing vocals). For this mix, I spliced together the first verse of the original into the remainder of the remake. I would reuse this mix on Mix 87 in 2002.
  6. That's All: Genesis
  7. *Better Be Home Soon: Crowded House
  8. Finish What You Started: Van Halen
  9. Bank on Your Love: Hall & Oates
  10. Relax: Frankie Goes to Hollywood
SIDE B: The Nouns Side
  1. "Runaway Train" This mix was relentlessly old-fashioned until this Soul Asylum song showed up!
  2. I will admit, I was totally hooked on "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane in 1992 and 1993.
  3. *"Pink Cadillac" is in my Top 5 Bruce Springsteen songs.
  4. *Goody Two Shoes: Adam Ant
  5. I first discovered "Hairstyles & Attitudes" when Timbuk3 was the musical act on Saturday Night Live April 18, 1987 (host: John Larroquette).
  6. You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover: Bo Diddley
  7. Ordinary Average Guy: Joe Walsh
  8. Owner of a Lonely Heart: YES
  9. Money Changes Everything: Cyndi Lauper
  10. Panama: Van Halen
