Swanton Sucks

Increased blog posting throughout the week in an effort to maintain my sanity while exiled in Northwest Ohio. It’s grim up north.

Behind The Wheel/Route 66 (Beatmasters Mix)
I had this for well over a year but never recorded it. I have no idea why. Ever seen Cars? It had a really shitty version of Route 66 by John Mayer. They should have used this one, totally would have been an entirely different movie. I just watched Wall-E with the commentary and the director said how he combined post-apocalyptic sci-fi imagery with music from Hello Dolly because they are polar opposites and the combination created something unique. I wish he would have been working on Cars, New Wave synthpop plus Americana/Western images would have been an awesome mix-up. These are all from a 12” promo single.

Why Go (Faithless Mix 1)
Why Go (Lange Remix)
Why Go (Fused Why Stay Remix)
I have more Faithless at home. But I am not home. So that Faithless will have to wait. Why Go is one of their lesser songs in my opinion, probably because I’m not a huge fan of Boy George’s voice (although his fashion sense is fabulous…ly stupid). Grunge fans take note, this song is of no relation to the Pearl Jam tune of the same name. That would be weird. Still, these are some pretty good remixes that I grabbed off of a 12” single.

    Cars is easily Pizar’s worst movie. My kids have it and the movie just slays me with it’s… Crapness.

    Couldn’t be hooked on “The Incredibles” could they?
