Music Mambo Week 26

Once again the time has come to Mambo! Autumn is just around the corner, so it’s time to think of some autumn roadtripping music and new releases. There’s so much music coming out in the next few months that everyone should have something new to mambo to.

So without further ado or adieux or a-do or whatever, let’s just get to the Mambo. Whatdayathink?

1. What music makes you think of autumn? (Songs, genres etc…)
Bagpipes, slow dances, flutes, Tchaikovsky

2. What new releases are you looking forward to this fall/winter?
I’m hoping that there will be a new Conjure One or Delerium out sometime this year. I’ve not followed anything that closely for a long time.

3. If you’re making a road trip over a weekend, what music do you take with you if any?
I’d make a mix to take, with all of the old faves and some new fun stuff. (As well as some of the old standbys, of course, we’re talking a while weekend) Low Rider, Dragula, Stupid Girl – Garbage, Silly stuff like: Are you Ready For This – 2Unlimited etc sing-along type music. I should really get that ‘soundtrack of my life’ CD on the go…

4. Does your musical mood shift in autumn? (Meaning do you listen to different types of music from season to season?)
Not really. That happens more with my mood.

5. If you could see one band in the fall concert season, who would it be and why? (The band has to be currently touring)
Erm… boy am I out of the loop. I have no idea who’s touring atm. Eek!


Make a perfect driving mix. Pick 15 songs that you love to hear while driving.

KMFDM – Juke Joint Jezebel
BT (Rob Doughty) – Never Gonna Come Back Down
Rob Zombie – Dragula
NIN and David Bowie – I’m afraid of Americans
Placebo – Pure Morning
The KLF – Justified and Ancient
Edwin Collins – Girl Like You
Dashboard Confessional – Vindicated
Thornley – So Far So Good
Goldfrapp – Strict Machine
Wild Strawberries – Trampoline
PM Dawn – Downtown Venus
Delerium – Decade and/or Duende
Kylie – Can’t Get You Outta My Head
Tori Amos – God

And not necessarily in that order…very mixed eh?

(You don’t have to do this part now..think about it and post it…and we’ll come back and check out your choices)
