Brian’s mixtape #24: Because We Want To

Brian at homeReaders, we’re a little worried. After his absence a couple of weeks ago, Brian’s been acting a bit strangely. He used to be such a lovely tidy, polite owl but now Brian’s stomping about like a petulant teenager, his roost is an absolute shambles and he’s taken to shouting “boring” whenever he loses interest in a conversation. Frankly, it’s alarming.

We think you’ll be able to see the change in Brian in this week’s mix. It’s thematically rather messy, and he’s chosen to call it “Because We Want To”. He’s stopped short of including Billie Piper’s 1998 atrocity of the same name though, thank goodness.

Despite Brian’s waywardness, he’s certainly not lost his wonderful taste in music. Every tune is a gem. FFS is going to be listening to this for a long time to come.

  1. Stars – Your Ex-Lover Is Dead
  2. Eels – Hey Man (Now You’re Really Living)
  3. Regina Spektor – Fidelity
  4. Amadou & Mariam – Mouna
  5. Joni Mitchell – Night In The City
  6. Field Music – Them That Do Nothing
  7. Belle and Sebastian – Roy Walker
  8. Alela Diane – The Pirate’s Gospel
  9. Band – Up On Cripple Creek
  10. Jackson C. Frank – Blues Run The Game

And here it is in all its rebellious glory on Spotify (which Brian says should be renamed Spotif-awesome – he’s not good with puns…) Brian’s Mixtape #24: Because We Want To
