Welcome back to Mixed-Up Memories for 2020! I’m doing things a bit differently this year. Instead of slowly adding to a playlist, one song at a time, I’m releasing an entire playlist of retro-tunes at the beginning of each month. The songs could be from albums that came-out in that month, or from artists with birthdays that month, or music that fits a particular holiday or event in history. Like this lovely Valentines Day selection from The Bloodhound Gang...
Among the albums we have 40th anniversary records from The Ramones and Squeeze. An album from Midnight Oil turns 30 and the third album from P.J. Harvey celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Birthdays this month include Black Flag’s Henry Rollins, who turns 59. Guitarist Wes Borland celebrates his 45th and while I’m not putting Limp Bizkit on this playlist, I will add a tune he played guitar on for The Crystal Method: “Born Too Slow.” Peter Gabriel turns 70… That’s good for TWO songs!
On February 6th, reggae icon Bob Marley would have been 75… Let’s do three songs from him. We kick-off this 90-minute (22-song) playlist with “Roots, Rock, Reggae.” Happy listening! -Kristen
