Retrocast 3 – Valentines Special
‘You give a little love and it all comes back to you,
You’re gonna be remembered for the things that you say and do..”
Week 3 of the retrocast wherein I dig through my old mixes, and this week it’s a Valentines’ special . . Without wanting to get all prog rock / concept album, there’s a storyline woven through these tracks, on that echoes The Bard’s sentiments on the course of true love. Give yourself a gold star if you can follow it successfully.
Also, as a bonus Easter Egg, you get to hear Maggie Thatcher’s opinion of Snoop Dogg, and if you like, you can try and spot which tunes are from movie soundtracks (clue: several)
Here’s what I originally wrote:
Orangeloverloverman – February mix . . . . for the ladies
“More of a blended assortment for this month’s mix, rather than the usual bpm-related assemblage . .
As we all know, February is the time of Valentines, when young romantics get to send obscene sexual demands to each other cloaked in anonymity.
To that end, i figured i’d put together a bit of a selection exploring various amorous themes. If you’re lucky, it might make you feel all warm and snuggly inside, then a little bit bitter and resentful, before easing into a final euphoric joy. Failing that, you might just enjoy a selection of largely relaxed tunes that aren’t too cloying and twee.
anyway, i hope you like it – here’s the info. . . .
