down the road, not across the street

or, Put down the Norelco and step away from the sink.

Inspired by dreamshark's playlist, I present a mix diametrically opposed to the "No Sad Songs" pop mix I put together last month*. Since I despise folk music with a passion, this is almost all rock with occasional bits of country.



ACT I: LIFE SUCKS AND YOU AREN'T HELPING
Allman Brothers - Whipping Post
The Who - Substitute
I'm not good enough for you. Really.
Blondie - Hanging On The Telephone
U2 - Bad
James McMurtry - Lobo Town
Because sometimes they really are out to get you. And they should be.

ACT II: LOVE AND OTHER BAD CHOICES
Metallica - Master of Puppets
It's about drugs. It's about abusive relationships. What's the difference?
Jason & the Scorchers - Broken Whiskey Glass
L.A. Guns - Never Enough
It's not you. It's me. OK, actually, it IS you.
Peter Gabriel - Secret World
That last melancholy moment before the roof caves in.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - I Need To Know

ACT III: I'D HIT IT - WITH A CROWBAR
Jason & the Scorchers - White Lies
Blondie - Just Go Away
Bachman-Turner Overdrive - Away From Home
Ryan Adams - Burning Photographs
Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorn
James McMurtry - Outskirts

ACT IV: HOPE FOR THE HOPELESS
Kid Rock - Only God Knows Why
Jason & the Scorchers - Somewhere Within

I doubt if I'll ever actually burn this to a CD, but it's an interesting exercise in emotional theorycrafting.


*which nonetheless has "Lucretia My Reflection" on it. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
