Guess what, folks? The last two Mix Tape posts were among my least popular posts of all time; I think a grand total of 28 people downloaded it. In other words, of the thirty thousand or so of you who viewed the post, roughly 0.09% were interested enough to download it. Wow!
So, why bother? Well, yours truly has wanted to be a DJ for a long time..... I have a desk job, about the farthest thing from Wolfman Jack you can think of. This is me livin' the dream. I even hand selected the album art for each song.... I'm just that retarded.
Plus, my track selection isn't exactly mainstream. But the thing is, if you're as old as me and you've been listening to music for as long as I have, you start to get tired of the well-known stuff. I mean, "More Than a Feeling" was great when I first heard it, but 10,000 times later, I'm ready to kill myself. The more obscure the better.
Thus, my science fiction mix tape doesn't have the obvious "Rocket Man" and Bowie's "Space Oddity"; instead, it's got disco versions of Star Wars songs and other bits of obscure vintage artifacts. Some aren't necessarily science fiction related ("Cosmic Cowboy" and "Universe", for instance) but the titles have a sci-fi feel.
So, without further ado, here's the mix tape. Save the file to download it, or hit "open" to stream. I hope all 28 of you enjoy it.
