This is a question Mix Tapes

Everyone's made a mix tape (or CD, USB stick, or whatever kids do these days). Mostly to get in someone else's pants, but we're sure there are other, lesser, reasons too.

So, who did you make it for and why?
And... what was on it?

Put your hands in the air for the church organ massive
I've only made one in the last ten years. It lives in the car and it's actually a CD (natch). It is played very rarely.

Its sole purpose is so that, when I'm sitting in a traffic jam and a chav in a Corsa draws up alongside with doof-doof-doof-doof coming out of the speakers, I can ram it in the CD player, roll down the windows and roof on my slightly effeminate Citroen convertible (a C3 Pluriel, essentially a 2CV for the 21st century), and put the volume up to maximum.

- Transports de Joie - Messiaen (iTunes linky). Very very heavy music indeed. Very very heavy church organ music, that is.
- Myddyfycys yn Bob Man - MC Mabon (iTunes linky). Happy bouncy Welsh-language rap randomly interpersed with the words "myddyfycys" (not quite pronounced as it looks) and "you son of a bitch".
- Martyn Bennett (mp3 clip). Banging techno. On bagpipes.

There's a bit of the really obscene pre-signing Goldie Lookin Chain on there too, "It's Grim Up North" by the KLF, a lot more organ music, and so on.

What usually happens that the chav puts their windows up - mission accomplished - and mouths the word "weirdo". I can cope with that.

Acknowledgement - I got the idea from a friend who, fed up of seeing chavs drive round and round Cambridge Market Place circa 1992 with doof-doof-doof blaring out, got a tape of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, loaded it into his rather battered old Metro and started doing the same. Very slowly.

If I had a car I'd do that! Awesomeness!

If you like Martyn Bennett...
you might also like the Red Hot Chilli Pipers http://www.redhotchillipipers.co.uk/ or (iTunes linky)

I do something similar
Except it involves Beethoven symphones, or anything by Rachmaninov/Shostakovich/Prokofiev etc.
