City/Island - Feb 10, 2009

In the limbo time between leaving the city and moving to the island, I was torn between listening to tracks reminding me of city life and pumping myself with tracks to sunny-up my disposition for island life. These mixes are a purging of songs I’ve been sitting on for a while, some a great while. Have I gotten less subtle as time has gone on (The Bowie track, 2 mentions of “Beach”, 2 of “City”, 1 of “Island” ) or lazier? The fact is, I could have been worse (Whitest Boy’s “Courage” rather than “Island”, Air France’s “Collapsing…” rather than “Beach Party”, nothing by Beach Party for that matter, etc).
Put in whatever order you wish, but the specified first and last tracks are recommended.

There’s a gem amongst this whole collection: the Legend/Colbert joint “Nutmeg”.
Gets me everytime.
