Playlist time-!

Alright, so last time I prepared a playlist on a website for y’all… this time, I’m just going to tell you the CD’s I have in my car and it’s up to y’all if you go look for them. Bear in mind that while some will be released internationally they were purchased in the UK so titles may vary.

I am aware that there will be some overlap between compilation CD’s, however, I select them relatively carefully and try and get differently marketed sets.

I also have an old radio that takes CD’s only. Stations are usually Classic FM… and… sometimes anything else I can get, I can’t stand the dj’s talking over and between the songs most of the time. BBC Radio one just pisses me off most of the time I try and avoid it unless it’s a chart show and the people in the studio shut the fuck up and actually play music. I’d rather endure ads than listen to them prattle on for five minutes between songs because… they simply have to fill the air rather than just playing…oh I dunno, another fucking song! *cough* Sometimes the signal sucks and Radio1 is all I get between the news and other features I care fuck all about.

* Bon Jovi Greatest Hits- Mercury Records [One Disk Edition]

*Classical Voices – Sony Music [Three Disk Edition]

– Features The Prayer by Jonathan and Charlotte, Amici Forever Whisper of Angels, several renditions of Ave Maria, and a few surprises along the way.

*Eddie Stobart Trucking Songs (Sony) [Three Disk Edition]

This one’s far more an easy listening selection with ballads as well as softer rock songs… compared to below.

*[Parental Advisory] Greatest Ever Rock Anthems (Union Square Music) [Three Disk Edition]

– Beautiful People and Last Resort are at least two reasons for the Parental Advisory tag. I have a new temporary song for driving and it is Last Resort, it’s one of the heaviest things I’ll play in the car at all. [This one is the most recent bought of the rock sets and will likely be one of the last compilations as I now have three different sets that more or less cover all the bases for rock music I need]

*The Party Mix – Rock (Sony) [Three Disk Edition]

There’s not actually that much overlap between this and the Stobart set (probably deliberate), and there’s only a couple that overlap to the Rock Anthems set (Poison – Alice Cooper), this one has classics like Eye of the Tiger and other feelgood guilty pleasures.

*Keep Calm and Chill Out (Surprise Surprise it’s Sony again) [Two Disk Edition]

–Warning, when installing to computer tracks 4-17 of disk two could well fuck up. I had to rename 13 of the tracks completely. I think this is because a different version was likely released since the planning stage – one song difference is enough to throw a lot of the tracks off. Girl on fire by Alicia Keys was listed as Say Something by A Great Big World, tracks 5 and 4 respectively… And I don’t know why, just, careful folks, you might get one from the same batch I had.

I’ll admit, looking at the back cover there’s only around four songs I recognized… Listening to the whole thing and there’s plenty of earworms that were all over the radios in stores and whatnot. I love easy to listen to music, it’s a nice bridge between classical and the majority of the stuff I listen to.

*Custom CD as explained at length HERE

Sorry this one isn’t as personal, but I thought it time I mentioned that I don’t just listen to the same CD every day –  I can get away with the same one in for weeks, but I don’t always turn the radio on. My drive to work is a short one and the one to my mothers is one of the rare drives I WILL have music on. I use my ipod more frequently, when I’m walking or trying to sleep etc, and it’s on shuffle most of the time. That has more or less everything I have on it… and… frequently gets pruned down when I get sick of particular songs for sure!

So yes, add a few film scores in the mix and this is pretty much the stuff I put in my ears every so often xD

Just to give him that little more exposure I will also put up a song that Chester See wrote and sung a while ago. The live one is the one I have a copy of –

“Who Am I To Stand In Your Way”

Forgive me
I may have said things
That aren’t exactly
The way that I feel

I told you I’d be strong
I said that I moved on
But it doesn’t take long
To realize

That I’m not over you

But if there is somebody that makes you feel happy
Tends to your heart in the ways I’d been lacking
Then who am I, who am I to stand in your way
To stand in your way
To stand in your way
I won’t stand in your way

I know it sounds crazy
But I need you to trust me
If it’s how it must be
Then I’ll fade away

When it finally feels true
Then do what you have to
Cause I’d never blame you
For not choosing me

But I’m not over you

But if there is somebody that makes you feel happy
Tends to your heart in the ways I’ve been lacking
Then who am I, who am I to stand in your way
That I feel is no longer your burden
If there is someone that can make you feel perfect
Then who am I who am I to stand in your way
To stand in your way
To stand in your way
I won’t Stand in your way

Down the road someone will ask me if I know you
I’ll pause for a moment, I’ll smile and say that I used to

If there is somebody that makes you feel happy
Tends to your heart
The ways I’ve been lacking
Then who am, I who am I to stand in your way
That I feel is no longer your burden
If there is someone that make you feel perfect
Then who am I who am I to stand in your way
To stand in your way
To stand in your way
I won’t Stand in your way
I won’t Stand in your way
I won’t Stand in your way

As a Bonus, a less raw version that I didn’t know existed till today –  (but then, I’ve not really looked at his stuff since Whistle While I Work It came out… and that was a WHILE ago)
