49: Tripping, Running, Escape!

This mix marks the first mix I made which was not recorded to cassette. This mix existed only as a Winamp playlist for a few years, between when I first installed Napster and Winamp on my PC circa 1998-1999, and when I finally upgraded to a new PC with a CD burner in 2001.
  1. Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, Lucinda Williams
  2. A Higher Place, Tom Petty - I will never forget a Liz Phair concert at Avalon: "A Higher Place" was the last song played on the PA system, after the lights were dimmed, but before Liz emerged onstage.
  3. Fastball's hit single was "Out of My Head", but I always liked "Fire Escape" better.
  4. "Tripping Billies" may be my favorite Dave Matthews song.
  5. "Eileen's Song" Burlap to Cashmere was a total one-hit wonder. I have the album "Eileen's Song" is on. I listened to it once all the way through, and I remember thinking that none of the other songs sounded like this.
  6. "Holding Back the Years" I always liked this Simply Red song, but I never managed to get it onto a mix until now. It feels very dated now.
  7. "Stolen Car" Beth Orton
  8. "Ray of Light" Madonna
  9. "Alcohol" Barenaked Ladies
  10. I recently scored 100% on ROCK BAND 2 while singing "My Own Worst Enemy" by Lit.
  11. "I'm Not Running Anymore" John Mellencamp
  12. "Sunflower" Paul Weller
  13. "Circus" Eric Clapton
  14. "Sally Ann" I found this song on 10,000 Maniacs' CD single for "Candy Everybody Wants".
  15. "Last Night of the World" Bruce Cockburn
