Oooh, great! Nice one Splotch!

And nice to see ROYGBIV by Boards of Canada in there...I was thinking yesterday about which songs I'd have included if I was partaking, and that was the first that came to mind.

Dale said...

The badge?! I'm truly honoured and if you smell smoke, that's me thinking. Or smoking.

SamuraiFrog said...

Wow, I didn't know there would be badges involved. I'm such a badge whore!

p0nk said...

badges? we don't need no stinkin' badges.

glassmeow said...

'k! It's up there

Dale said...

Here I go on Splotchy. Love the badge, thank you very much!

Helene said...

Oh very nice! I just downloaded Ponks songs... tyvm. (although after my virus disaster with Limewire I am a bit nervous...)

Fun idea and really diverse songs!
Happy Wed!

Bull said...

Awesome...my iTunes library is growing by leaps and bounds.

I hafta' call out Dale for his excellent choices - Joan Jett's cover of Crimson and Clover especially - it's always fehkin' rocked.

Helene said...

Ok so it wasnt Crayon something or other its the Green Monkey Music Project! (Cool name btw)

I will have to have a look around for some of the others!

Splotchy said...

Glad you like the mix, Helen!

Chris the Hippie said...

Man, I really appreciate the work you put into this! I'm downloading scads of tantalizingly tasty tunes today.

If you ever do this again I'd LOVE to play! This sort of thing makes my left nipple tingle, just a little...

Moxie said...

I am such a dork...it wasn't until today that I saw I got my badge. Whoo hoo! I knew it would be coming but figured I might have to ask for it nicely. I have my theme at the ready, just give me the word when I should post it.
