One Sunday Morning: A Playlist

“The making of a good compilation tape is a very subtle art.  Many do’s and don’ts.  First of all, you’re using someone else’s poetry to express how you feel.  This is a delicate thing.” (High Fidelity)

Over the past few weeks, one of my work projects has me thinking about playlists a lot: about how they can capture a mood perfectly, about how they can change your mood more effectively than almost anything else, and how they indeed are a very subtle art.

As the first of what might become a regular feature of this blog, I’m going to share a playlist.  This one seeks to capture the feeling of the song title that wraps it up: one Sunday morning.

Here’s the screen shot of the songs and artists; below is a link that will take you to the music itself (technology willing).  Enjoy.

One Sunday Morning

The Sounds of Los Angeles

Most driving songs are peppy affairs.  A rolling drum beat, a happy strum, a sing-a-long.  Songs meant for the sunshine and the open road.

But a few others lurk in the shadows.  Songs suited for slithering around skyscrapers.  Tracks that drip with atmosphere, even menace.

These two are the best of the bunch, both evoking the streets of Los Angeles.
