Mix it up: The aging mix

I’m making another themed music mix, and since you guys were so helpful last time I thought I’d throw out another challenge for you. This mix’s theme is aging, so all of the songs have to talk about being a certain age or about getting older. There seem to be an abundance of songs about teenagers, but material starts to scarcer the older you get. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Sound of Music – Sixteen Going on Seventeen

Stevie Nicks – Edge of Seventeen

Janis Ian – At Seventeen

Ace of Base – Blooming 18

Paul Hardcastle – Nineteen

The Who’s Tommy – Twenty-One

Gin Blossoms – 29

Aimee Mann – 31 Today

Dido – See You When You’re 40

The Beatles – When I’m 64

Five for Fighting – 100 Years

Joni Mitchell – The Circle Game

ETA: (Forgot this one!) Band of Horses – Older

ETA: (Thought of another one!) Rod Stewart – Ooh La La (I Wish That I Knew What I Know Now)

Have you got any other songs for me? Songs should be about aging, not just about [...]

Mix it up: Same title, different song

I used to make mixed tapes for friends, actual tapes, which is one of those signs that I’ve been on the planet longer than a steadily growing percentage of the population. I make mixed CDs now and don’t even own a tape player, which means I won’t be listening to the recordings of my 6th grade band concert any time soon.

Sometimes I get high-concept ideas for CD mixes, like a mix of songs that track the progress of my life. Or a CD where all the tracks are covers of the same song. My latest concept is “Same Name, Different Song” which consists of songs that have the same name but aren’t covers, just totally different songs. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

Forever Young – Rod Stewart

Forever Young – Alphaville (Though I personally prefer the Youth Group cover)

Breathe – Erasure

Breathe – Sixpence None the Richer

Breathe – Jane French (The theme from “Passions” oh how I miss you)

Breathe – Maria McKee

Photograph – Weezer

Photograph – REM feat. Natalie [...]
