Spring Mix: Throwbacks

Posted on: April 14, 2008

So Tiff has this thing that she’s been doing since September 2007, it’s called the Great American CD Swap. Basically a theme is picked and each participant creates a mix based on the theme. The mix is then uploaded and a link is posted on the “deejay’s” blog and shared with the masses.

The Spring 2008 Invitational had four themes to choose from:

  • There Will Be Spring — a mix to celebrate the changing of the seasons
  • Throwbacks — your favorite, cheesiest hits of the 80s and 90s
  • Memories Frozen in Time — songs that “strike a chord with you”
  • Back to the Future — what songs will be played as classics in 30 years?

I chose Throwbacks. It was a lot harder that I thought it would be. All of these songs came to mind, but I had to pick only 18 of them. However, as I started putting my mix together, I realized that all of the songs that I picked were also Memories Frozen in Time for me. These songs remind me of roller skating at Jelleff’s Boys and Girls Club, summers at St. Alban’s camp, birthdays, my favorite movies, elementary school and my carpool girls during my senior year in high school.

Anyhoo, here’s my list:

  1. Bobby Brown – Every Little Step
  2. Paula Abdul – Straight Up
  3. The B-52’s – Love Shack
  4. Dee Lite – Groove Is In The Heart
  5. M.C. Hammer – U Can’t Touch This
  6. New Kids On The Block – Step By Step
  7. Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy
  8. C&C Music Factory – Gonna Make You Sweat
  9. Wham – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
  10. Wilson Phillips – Hold On
  11. Ready For The World – Oh Sheila
  12. Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True
  13. Peter Cetera – Glory Of Love
  14. The Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian
  15. Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up
  16. The Culture Club – Karma Cameleon
  17. Pretty Poison – Catch Me I’m Falling
  18. Vanessa Williams – The Right Stuff

I was too young to understand a damn thing about production and whatever.. so . yes . I owned the CD.


rick astley! I can’t wait to get rick rolled 🙂

This mix is Ah-Maze-ING!

apollocreed — how can you not love the King of R&B?!?! LOL

Deutlich — Thanks and you’re welcome! I think a lot of us owned the CD but after the controversy, denied it simply because it was cool to go along with the crowd!

tiff — Rick Astley is so 80s, I couldn’t help but throw him into the mix!

Maxie — Why, thank you! I like to consider myself a mix connoisseur! LOL

Fun mix! Have you heard the new B52s, Hot Corner? Good stuff!

I just made a spring mix too.
