"By Request": The Weekend Mix

I want to thank Jeff Kisseloff for a stellar run. Great work. Thank you.

The following is a collection of songs put together from a list of many, at the suggestion of a long time reader and friend. I think it works. Or at least I hope it does.


"Heroes"- David Bowie
Stop & Think It Over- Mary Weiss
Maybe The Universe- Jason Falkner
Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy- Queen
Wild Horses- Rolling Stones
A Whole Lot Better- Brendan Benson
Stargazer- Rainbow
Comfortably Numb- Pink Floyd
Throw Your Arms Around Me- Neil Finn & Eddie Vedder
The End- Pearl Jam




Excellent mix Sal -- Thanks!

Ditto & a couple of good rock songs I can try headbanging to into the bargain, although last time resulted in wearing a neck brace for seven days & being shouted at for scaring small children. Oh well, here goes "Where is your star? Is it far, is it far, is it far?" They don't write 'em like that anymore. Cheers & hope you get the weekend you want.

I never gave Heroes much of a thought until an ex-girlfriend - in fact, the one that got away - told me she thought it was one of the saddest songs ever written. Now it always reminds me of her. An amazing record.

Great Sound-On-Sound article on its creation:

Rest of the mix is great per usual! Thanks Sal.

Welcome back Sal - looking forward to hearing this!

Anybody know why "Heroes" was/is specifically named with quotes around it?
