Roadtrip: the Mix

While preparing to move, I'm writing down the songs on various mix tapes I have or made. I recently wrote down the mix tape I made after my sister and I went on a road trip in 1996.

I posted it here, and am also posting it here (links are all to youtube though many of the videos are just stills):

Two Kool-Aid Lovers On the Road, 1996 (dubbed 01/16/1997)
A: Going West
B: The Road Back Home

You Gotta Be - Des'ree
Ladder - Joan Osbourne
Silent All These years - Tori Amos
Vivaldi - Four Seasons (segment)
Ironic - Alanis Morissette
Mercedez Benz - Janis Joplin
Pressure - Billy Joel
Movin' Right Along - Muppets
Running to Stand Still - U2
The Girl with the Weight of the World in her Hands - Indigo Girls
Anne & Sarah - Crater Lake
California Sun - The Rivieras
Wouldn't it be nice? - Beach Boys
I Got You (I Feel Good) - James Brown
I got a Gal (In Kalamazoo) - Glenn Miller

Ramble On - Led Zepplin
Bullwinkle, Part II - Pulp Fiction; The Centurians
Cornflake Girl - Tori Amos
In Liverpool - Susan Vega
Good Mother - Jann Arden
Welcome Me - Indigo Girls
Wolf Eyes - Paul Winter
Naked Man - Randy Newman
Bill Cosby, Man of Many Languages
Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel (and Kate Bush)

This was all composed of music we had with us on the trip. Songs correlated to memorable moments or feelings along the way. For instance:
Pressure - Seattle Ramble On - Driving to Zion late at night, Sarah asleep beside me.
Good Mother - stopping at a lookout in Utah, brought to tears by the swelling music, our shadows on the ground.
Wolf Eyes - leaning against the car in Coral Reef, looking at the stars.

"Anne & Sarah - Crater Lake" is from a collection of recordings dad made of our calls back home. He had a toll-free number that went to voice mail for work, so we would call it and leave messages. This was one about the beautiful campsite we stayed at near Diamond Lake, in Oregon, just North of Crater Lake.
