19 - On A Slow Boat To China - Sonny Rollins
20 - Wishyouawish - The Hollies
21 - Who by Fire - Leonard Cohen
22 - Whippings And Apologies (edit) - Sparks
23 - Mr. Songbird [Stereo Version] - The Kinks

Note: I don't care for this one much insofar as that it was always pretty much an odd and sods collection. I like all the songs individually, but don't really think it makes for much of a coherent mix so if you feel the same, well, that's why.

    I'd love a Woody Allen version of this.

    I'm so happy you did this! This beginning concept is what got me into the playlist site in the first place. You've evolved quite well.

    These playlists were what made me subscribe to the website years ago. I still have them on my iPod. I miss them.

    Be honest...I gave you that Procol Harum track, right? Congrats on 6 years! I think I still have "If I Were Sofia Coppola" on a drive somewhere.

    Oh snap. I think you did. SH comin out of the woodwork...

    Now if we could just get your running thoughts on Anderson's director's commentary on the rest of his films and not just Bottle Rocket. That is what you did back in the day right?

  • The Playlist | May 25, 2012 3:21 PM

    Hmmm, not sure what you mean, you mean this piece?

    Sorry the images are all broken. Photobucket is a scam and I kinda refuse to keep paying them my money after years of doing so (no one goes to that site, but my bandwidth is over its limit? BS).

    BTW, random: realize this whole series is a totally pretentious idea, but ppl seem to dig it so, sure.
