Rock The Alternative Way - A Mix Of Mushy Beats

Because of the weird and wet weather we have been experiencing over the past few days here in Manila, it brought out the mushy feeling inside me and thus placed me in the mood of creating this mix. After finishing my set and listening to it afterwards, I began to realize that even though the weather was bad and not cooperating, listening to some chillout grunge, 90s alternative rock and new wave beats was a good idea as it relaxed me in a way and gave me a better perspective for the rest of the day.

So for today's set, chill out to some of the best tripped out new wave tunes with the likes of Tears for Fears, Human League, Johhny Hates Jazz, Blue Zoo, Crowded House, Midge Ure, etc., mixed with some cool, but edgy 90s alternative rock and grunge tunes from Radiohead, Pearl Jam, The Verve, Beck, Joan Osborne, Jesus Jones, and a tinge of classic rock from Billy Squier and Squeeze.

Now for today's tracklisting:
1) Stay - Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories - from my Reality Bites Soundtrack CD; i think Ethan Hawke directed the video

2) Light & Shade - Fra Lippo Lippi (Big Beat Mix)
3) Somebody - Depeche Mode (Spiral Tribe Remix) - mushy DM tune
4) Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House (Freedom Mix) - another great Aussie act!
5) Upside Down - Two Minds Crack - another one of my wifey's fave!
6) Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve (Extended Bass Mix) - Cruel Intentions theme
7) Creep - Radiohead - another early grunge tune!

9) Stoke - Billy Squier (DJ Shooter's Remix) - thanks to DJ Shooter for this classic rock track!
10) One Of Us - Joan Osborne
11) Tempted - Squeeze (Hot Tracks Remix) - another one from the Reality Bites soundtrack!
12) Love Moves In Strange Ways - Blue Zoo - mushy new wave tune!
13) Dear God - Midge Ure - still rocks even without Ultravox!
14) Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2 (The Beatmeister's Remix)

15) Turn Back The Clock - Johnny Hates Jazz (Original 12" Extended Version) - one of my fave new wave tunes; the best version; brings back great memories
16) Repetition - Information Society (Spiral Tribe Remix)

17) Human - Human League (Original 12" Extended Version) - my fave Human League tune!
