Funny old world, Alistair...up an a totally godly hour;beautiful sunrise; tinkering the iTunes for a 'Summer comp. (see below) and look at 'unpopular' - meh! Look what you've been up to - too! Which German art movie is the still from? Great pic and judging by the tracklist the sun is going down! Can't wait to download.
meanwhile my seasonal tinkering began with a determined navigation close to the rocks of Tongueincheek (just off the coast of neverland) - ended up ditching swathes of dreck ending up with the following mix. Ok , so the beach Boys pop up yet again but I don't care - and itis both tongue in cheek and affectionately reverential.

In the meantime I'll take sunset as a replacement for July? August?....

thanks Rob, that looks like a sweet playlist you've got there :) As for the Sunset mix being a 'July/August' substitute, well, the good news is... well, just wait until July 1st ;) Also, i really ought to do a companion 'sunrise' mix, oughtn't I? To the mix-mobile...

This question is probably answered somewhere but I'll put it the mixmaster: How do you import tracks (from this file for instance) in to iTunes and preserve the playlist order? Sounds simple enough but I can't for the life of me figure it out.

By the way, I appreciate the care taken in these mixes--the subtle connections between songs when listened in the correct order, like a word repeated or a similar sounding instrument or rhythm. Not to forget the intentional shifts in tone.
