All I'm going to suggest we do today is mention in the comments if we've found any favorites from the mixes we've listened to so far. LOW PRESSURE. Here are the mixes and their tracklistings. If you've already compiled your entire list of favorites, go ahead and post that! But I suspect most everyone is like me, and this is a process. I've been listening to nothing but mixes, and I don't feel fully qualified to "pick" on some of them. More on that in my musings...
And for ease's sake, here's the list of Lester participants: nijikitten, aloria, sheena_bandy, tomnoir, jix1125, auracel, opaleyes, syntheticjesso, kandigurl, mrgazpacho, and gutterballjen.
As I've been listening to everyone's mixes, I've remembered the main reason I wanted to do this, and that was to discover what type of music makes folks tick. I feel like I know a lot more about the people that have put together mixes for this. Each mix seems to have a cohesive sound to it, whether intentional or not. The ten tracks on each all seem to share some common musical or emotional thread, and I find listening to how the chosen songs work together just as interesting as finding the one song I like best. That's why picking those favorites is taking longer than I originally thought, because I feel like I'm still getting to know all the music. I've had several songs stuck on loop in my head as I've been listening, and I'll list those. But I want to give all the mixes equal listening time, and I'll admit I've sort of lingered a little longer over some of them.
ANYWAY. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that's participated, because it's two parts meme, one part social experiment, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it!
