DJ Shakes_2006-06-04 (rainy day)
theme: Rainy Day

We're back for another week! Okay I was going to play something a bit more upbeat but the fact that it's been raining all weekend made me do this rainy day mix. I dedicate this mix to all the poor Indian kids who are going to be forced by their parents to compete in next year's spelling bee and spend like 10+ hours a day learning irrelevant words.

(approx time 67:44)
[0:00] Intro - Shakes
[1:17] Intropol - Untitled
[5:06] U2 - Acrobat
[9:08] Keren Ann - Greatest You Can Find
[13:13] Nick Drake - Pink Moon
[15:04] DJ Shadow - Midnight In A Perfect World
[19:40] Moby - In My Heart
[23:38] Talvin Singh - It's Not Over
[28:40] Bloc Party - So Here We Are
[32:19] Vast - Don't Take Your Love Away
[37:08] The Shins - Weird Divide
[38:58] Wilco - I Am Trying To Break Your Heart
[42:55] Amon Tobin - Deo
[48:11] (Indian) Pakeezah - Chalte
[52:07] (Indian) 1942 A Love Story - Ek Ladki Ko Dekha
[56:15] Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out)
[60:25] Talvin Singh - Soni
[64:05] Outro - Me & the spelling bee.
[64:45] (happy happy joy joy song) Gnarls Barkley - Crazy

Hopefully this wasn't too depressing. On a sidenote I think the award for the most random lyrics in this mix goes to Wilco, who open up their song with the line "I am an American aquarium drinker."
