Monthly Mix: Vote!

So, dear readers/listeners, for April's Monthly Mix would you rather have:

1) "Just Don't.", a mix in which we brusquely offer you all sorts of advice on what not to do, and then finally remember to say "Please" in the last song. Lots of 80s goodness like "Dont Forget Me (When I'm Gone)", but some great songs you probably don't know as well.

or

2) "Midnight in Istanbul", which is a mix of Turkish rap, foreboding soundtrack scoring, and French-Algerian-Arabic electronica, and is intended as the soundtrack for an awesome Anatolian/Mahgreb gangster epic - Boyz in the Hood meets The Battle of Algiers meets The Long Good Friday.

Voting closes Saturday at 7PM EST/Midnight Harrogate time. The loser will probably feature as another month's mix.

Midnight in Istambul, obviously. I need a good set of tracks to blare now that the windows are down.

I wanna hear "Don't", but I can wait...

Well... hmmmm. That's tough. I DO need a remake of Nightfall at the Arabesque, but I'm highly suspicious of Turkish rap. There's a lot of really bad Turkish music out there, and Q owns some already. I can't decide.

Maren - do you mean bad morally or bad musically?

The final tally looks like 3 to 1.5 (2.5 if you count M voting in person). It would seem I owe you men a Turkish Hip-Hop Soundtrack...

Maren said...

Both, actually.
