...DORIS DAY...DEAN MARTIN...ROSEMARY CLOONEY...

This past Wednesday, I allowed you all a privileged peek into my mix-CD-making process, just so:

"On mix CDs, I always tend to want to follow a LEONARD COHEN song with MARIANNE FAITHFULL song. Or vice-versa. Don't ask me why. My brain just links them.

And so it is with CULTURE CLUB and MEN AT WORK (or vice-versa). Link City. Pavlov's-dog-automatic. Don't question it. Don't resist. Whatever will be, will be. (Speaking of which, a DORIS DAY song should always be followed by a DEAN MARTIN song which should always be followed by a ROSEMARY CLOONEY song. LOUIS PRIMA... PATTI PAGE... BOBBY DARIN... CONNIE FRANCIS... NAT KING COLE... DINAH WASHINGTON... and so on....)"


Well, the proof is in the pudding (and, if you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding; how can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?). What follows is a little 11-song mix that took me the better part of two days to wrangle into place. (The more observant amongst you will notice that I have not, in fact, followed my own template in wrangling said little mix into place. Bobby Darin, for one thing, objected to being wedged between Patti and Connie -- insisting, instead, that he be situated between Shirley and Peggy. The preening, prima-donna twat.)

Now, depending on how this goes, we may just show up again next week with another couple strings of tunes to bookmark this particular string of tunes. When all is said and done, if we have ourselves something resembling a full, 80-minute mix, we'll be quite the collective happy camper.

In the meantime, mix yourself up a Gibson, slip in a "Mad Men" DVD, recline thyself on the divan or the davenport or the chesterfield, and pretend the Kennedys aren't yet dead....
