  1. It started out as a quest to make a CD with old love songs spanning all genres, but when I stopped hanging out with that chick (she wasn't interested. I don't blame her) it turned into a project to make a CD with the best classic alternative rock from the nineteen-eighties.

    Now, it's a two volume collection of the best classic rock from the eighties and earlier. I'm also in the process of making a volume three. Remembering how the first CD became a struggle of "How am I going to fit all these on one disc?" spawned the second volume, it's safe to assume there will be a volume four.

    Anyway, I've listed the track order below. I'd kind of like some feedback and suggestions on the track listing (what's good and/or bad in your opinion, what you'd reccomend, et cetera), and I figure this would be a good way to start a discussion about music. It's also why it's in blogs.

      Throughout all this, I'm surprised nobody, including myself, has mentioned Iggy Pop. TV Eye or I Want To Be Your Dog comes to mind.

      Also, I thought about the fact that most of these songs are singles, and remembered why I was doing that. The crew I run with listens to rap most of (if not all) the time, and I frankly am sick of going to parties where the only music playing is rap. Behold, a CD that everyone can agree on, because despite being rap junkies they have pretty diverse tastes and most of them have wanted copies of these CDs.
