I’m not breaking up with anybody. I’m just breaking up with my job, so I made you this mix. We’ll always have the music!

Songs About the Heavens
By Jessica Cassyle Carr
I embarked upon this playlist just like others I’ve made—e.g., scary songs, songs about glitter, birds of prey songs—under the assumption that putting it together would be easy. Not so. As it turns out, the majority of music that deals with the zodiac is of the jazz or hip-hop persuasion. I wanted to make a rock and roll astrology mix in honor of this week’s feature (“Sign Language,” read here). As a result, some of the songs are only vaguely star-based, but, to quote Paul Stanley, “Do I care?” Listen to this mix at 8tracks.com.

Songs about love, loss and lust
By Samantha Anne Scott
Love is a many-splendored thing, and music reflects this complexity. Songs are written about first love, obsessive love, unrequited love, heartbreak and so on. Whether you consider Valentine’s Day a silly Hallmark holiday or a nice annual summit on the true meaning of the L word, here's an eclectic soundtrack that ranges from torch songs to tortured ballads. Raunch, romance and resentment are represented in this sonic valentine.

Welcome to the square state.

8tracks user beastings made an excellent, New Mexico-themed mix (although, I’m not sure what the songs have to do with our state—it’s personal, presumably). The playlist contains the works of Micachu, Television, Nico and more. Listen to it here.

Access others’ music libraries with 8tracks
By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Thu Jul 22 2010 2:02 PM ]
8tracks, an internet radio site wherein users upload songs from their libraries making playlists that contain at least eight tracks, isn’t new. It’s just that I rediscovered it this weekend, created an account and made some mixes. Here’s my latest: Songs I listen to at the office. This website is particularly excellent when bored of your own music library, and in the mood to expose yourself to something new.
