Hilltop Radio No.56

Forecast: I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today.

When I start a mix, I don’t always have a plan. In fact, I usually don’t. Once I start sequencing a mix tho’, a pattern may show up. A few tweaks – remove these tunes, add this song and it may create a theme. At least to my ears. So No.56 ends up being another covers mix.

Bob Forrest – Born To Run
Bryan Ferry – Whatever Gets You Through The Night
Susan Boyle – Enjoy The Silence
Hazel O’Connor – Do What You Gotta Do
The Primitives – I’m Not Sayin’
Belle & Sebastian – Crash
This Mortal Coil – You And Your Sister
Fine Young Cannibals – Suspicious Minds
Sammy Davis Jr. John Shaft
Mel Torme – Games People Play
King Curtis – To Sir With Love
The Langley Schools Music Project – Rhiannon
Fran├žoise Hardy – I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today
Sinead O’Connor – Rivers Of Babylon
J Mascis – Fade Into You

Mean Red Spiders – Trains And Boats And Planes
Willie Nelson – The Maker
Departure Lounge – They Don’t Know
Rasputina – Wish You Were Here

Remember: whether it is the original or a cover, always be buying music.
