 I've been compiling a 2004 only summer list after signing up for the summer burn over at FunJunkie - a mass CD burn'n'swap

 I ain't fronting, Dom, because god knows there's a lot of good stuff here ("The Way" is obviously better than that crap New Radicals song), but the Santana and Don Henley tracks should just be replaced by more Hall & Oates. You can never have too much Hall & Oates.

 I'd have to say this mix is a bit on the masochistic side. Some good stuff though. And as for the New Radicals, I've always had quite a large soft spot in my heart for that tune. One of the best karaoke jams ever.

 Yeah, "You Get What You Give" bothered me until I realized it was Todd Rundgren's first charting song since 1983.

 Wow, no fronting here either, but that's a lot of stink on one mix. Is this a joke? Shouldn't you also have "Centerfield" by John Fogerty on here, along with "Walk of Life", so that you could have the two worst songs in history on the same comp? Good call on the Hall and Oates though, especially if you use the version from the 1978 live album.

 No, because the two worst songs ever are "Cats In The Cradle" by Ugly Kid Joe and "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum, everyone knows that.

 god, I love "Runaway Train".

 Yeah. Nice 'n all. But this looks suspiciously like a list of tunes. Not a mix tape. Where are the tunes? You mean I have to do my own work? Sheesh!

 presence of 'i did what i did for maria' almost makes up for calling the new radicals song 'craptacular'

 Dom Until they make a sports video of baseball bloopers for either Ugly Kid Joe or Soul Asylum, "Walk of Life" will continue to out-crap them. And "Centerfield"? C'mon, those fake handclaps! I appreciate choice of songs to hate, though. I think "Runaway Train" needed to be more earnest...

 The New Radicals sucked, even despite the fact that Stephanie Mills from Archie Bunker's Place was in the mix. The top mix is awesome-- and thanks for the shout out.

 I thought everyone had acknowledged by now that Gregg Alexander is a pop genius. Anyone else find it funny that he produced a song for Hanson after dissing them on his only solo charting single?

 i really want to punch dom.. but then i guess thats expected. a bunch of awful picks and an insulting piece of praise (im a bitter bastard due to the 'fools garden' comparison) on a great connells song..
