#2 Its A Beautiful Thing

If I were putting together a mix-tape of favorite songs for my sweetheart with eartaste in mind, this would not be far from my personal choices. It includes fantastic hits from the 90’s, but few of the overworked ones. 19 songs by The Jam, The LA’s, James, Shed Seven, Pulp, Gene, The Housemartins, The Cranberries, Weezer, The Cure . . . very tasty. As usual with mix-tapes you have to include the weird and mysterious, so the final hit is designed to be played after the romance is consummated and you’re lying together contemplating the weirdness of everything that just happened, if you know what I mean – Serge Gainsbourg & Bridgett Bardot. Its A Beautiful Thing
