First, I am having another giveaway on my SKJAM! Reviews blog http://www.skjam.com
so please stop by and let other people know if you think they might be interested.
And it is time, once again, for my holiday mix CD, that I send out to people on the wishlist communities. The 2013 theme is:
MUSIC WITH ROCKS IN
1. Rock Lords--Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. I have surprisingly little actual rock music on my Itunes, so decided put a hard-rocking tune right up front.
2. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds--Circulus. The diamonds have very little meaning in the song, mostly there for the acronym.
3. The Archylte Steppes--Final Fantasy XIII Soundtrack. Continuing the relatively mellow music.
4. Banks are Made of Marble--Pete Seeger. Rich people have the biggest rock collections.
5. Mineral Rights--Leslie Fish. Some rocks don't like environmentally destructive mining practices.
6. Memoro de la Stono--Nobuo Uematsu. The memory of a stone.
7. Black Diamond--KISS. I wonder how this one wound up on my computer? Ah well, it's a rock song.
8. In the Big Rock Candy Mountain--Harry McClintock. Heaven is a very good place, no matter who you are.
9. Byker Hill--Tempest. Mining isn't always the worst job.
10. Climbing Up a Mountain--Tom O'Brien. Is your mountain an obstacle or an opportunity?
11. Honey in the Rock--Bill & Gloria Gaither. Some rocks have treasure beyond measure.
12. Drill, Ye Tarriers, Drill--Trip McCool. This mix seems to have a lot of working men.
13. Gold and Silver Waltz--Carousel Music. Cold metals, but oh so beautiful.
14. Echo Cliffs--Bill Vermette. Tasty electronica.
15. Foggy Mountain Breakdown--Lester Flatt. String instrument virtuoso.
16. Emerald Green--See-Saw. In case you're tired of diamonds.
17. I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls--Anuna. Dreams of wealth are fun, but there is a better dream still.
18. Big Ty's Ride--Joe Bethancourt. Rocks in SPAAACE!
19. Miner's Song--Woody Guthrie. This land was made for you and me.
20. The Stone--Jars of Clay. Mark 12:10.
21. Sands of Gold--Don Ho. Sand is very, very tiny rocks. Happy Holidays and aloha.
