cartwheels into your heart

The long-awaited 1992 mixtape is now up. As I hinted, I did a lot of paring down for this one, and it does sort of hurt me that there's no room for CeCe Peniston's "Keep On Walkin'" or the Black Crowes' "Remedy" or, since I'd begun listening to WGCI that year, sensuous slow jams like R. Kelly's "Honey Love" or Jodeci's "Come and Talk to Me" (complete with lascivious moaning to rival Donna Summer). I even thought about tossing in "Achy Breaky Heart," too, just to mix it up. But I'm mostly pleased with how it turned out, and, as always, copies are available upon request.

It was the agony and the ecstasy last week on the Singles Jukebox, as I gave my first 0/10 ever (Sandi Thom) and only my fourth or fifth 9/10 (Nelly Furtado). (In retrospect, I've decided that my only perfect 10/10s from last year were "Since U Been Gone" and "Be Mine!" -- but I didn't have the chance to score either of them at the time.)

And there's a new article from me today as well, as I give a chance to Booker T. and the MGs. It's summer: stay cool.
