Creator of the Mix: Rev. Syung Myung Me

Initial Notes About The Mix: It's been a long time since I've done another official mix, mainly because I've been working on this one for a really long time. This one, the theme/gimmick is songs with really long titles. I had the idea because of two of my favorite Pet Shop Boys songs from Nightlife (and two of the three singles from that record) have really, really long titles -- actually, before that, I got the idea from conflating the theme of The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites with Long Title by The Monkees. Anyway, I had trouble figuring which Pet Shop Boys song to go with, so I decided to use both. There wasn't any mathematical limit to this one -- I just set my iTunes title field divider at a place that looked good and only used titles that were reduced to needing an ellipsis. I also tried my best to not do anything with a parenthetical title, but there's a couple who sneaked by, just basically on whim and/or being an awesome song. So, there you go. The thing is, a lot of long-title songs seem to be shoved in the middle of a record, so it was really hard to find ones for disc starters. I think I did OK, but after frustration of having these folders sitting in my Playlist Windows for so long, I figured I'd just get it done and not worry too awfully much about the order -- but I still think the order's pretty good anyway, so I think it sorta lucked out. So here it is!
