On One Hand

My boyfriend and I have different tastes in music, and I am trying to burn him a CD that would reflect what we can share. He likes a lot of 80’s music, and basically anything with a very upbeat, excited rhythm that you can dance to. I like music that is mellow and lyrical, though I can enjoy high-energy stuff if it’s original and has something unique or subversive to say. I just realized that most of the pop rock songs I have are still not the right type: Third Eye Blind and Stroke 9 are good bands but they aren’t danceable.

Stuff we can share are songs like “Bohemian Like You” by the Dandy Warhols and “Jonathon Fisk” by Spoon. I suppose I have to go for some more.



  1. You should check out the band Beborn Beton, it’s quasi-dancey and with good lyrics.

  2. When did you obtain a boyfriend, it wasn’t in your journal. Congratulations.

  3. You and I have the same taste and music. Lyrical and mellow is best … but faster stuff is good when the lyrics are meaningful. But it’s often tough to find that.

  4. I would have to agree with him. I am into the 80’s stuff, as well as upbeat stuff. I especially like ABBA, and I recently downloaded California Dreamin’ by The Mammas and the Papas and The Boys in the Bright White Sports Car by Trooper. I alos listen to ATeens (techno remixes of ABBA songs) when in certain moods, and recently downloaded all the club songs that I heard in the (gay) clubs on a recent trip to Montreal. Go him!
