Fear and Loathing in Nacogdoches

This is the last CD in Volume 1 of the Best of Billy Collection. It is not one of my favorite play list … it just didn’t have a good flow to it. Never the less, it does have some great songs on it. Those two OTHER songs that Blur is known for? Harvey Danger? Sheryl Crow? And an awesome cover of Ordinary World by Fenix TX? Yes Please!

I think this was about the time that I dropped out of SFA. 3 sad semesters, but it wasn’t quite fifteen grand …

  1. If It Makes You Happy – Sheryl Crow
  2. Pieces Of The Night – Gin Blossoms
  3. How do You – Radiohead
  4. Coffee and TV – Blur
  5. This will be my Year – Semisonic
  6. Oh my beloved ice cream bar – Ren from Ren and Stimpy
  7. Basket Case – Green Day
  8. Flag Pole Sitter – Harvey Danger
  9. Girls & Boys – Blur
  10. Army – Ben Fold’s Five
  11. Sad Sweetheart of the Rodeo – Harvey Danger
  12. Ordinary World – cover by Fenix TX
  13. Leaving Las Vegas – Sheryl Crow
  14. Bright Lights – Matchbox 20
  15. You just don’t get it, do you? – Dr. Evil from Austin Powers

Blue Heaven is the 3rd CD in the Best of Billy collection. I think a lot of the songs were either ones from a Warp Tour demo disc or that came with iTunes.

  4. Fade into you – Mazzy Star

  13. All the Things You Said – TATU
  14. Blue Skies – BT
  15. Halcyon On and on – Orbital
  16. Waist My Days(Keep Fishin’) – Weezer
  17. These Days – Luxury
  18. Feed It – The Candyskins

**Red Red Wine may be on some early copies but not later ones

Listing to this now … wow … maybe I was a little sad? I don’t think I’ve burned a copy of this one in a really long time.

Houston Aloha!

The title for this CD was inspired by the doomed Apple online service eWorld. When they shut it down, the refuges that found themself back on AOL made a forum called “Apple Aloha!”

This was the first mixed CD I made on my little Graphite iMac. Man … what was my deal with the Clueless Soundtrack? I think I created this right when I got back from Army Reserve Training and during my 2nd run at UHD. Part of Best of Billy Volume I.
