MetaCheeze Here's the 1970s swap mix you've all been waiting for (YouSendIt link). I will post the cover art and tracklist in a subsequent comment.
P.S. I apologize for removing "Montana", although otherwise I was true to the orignally proposed track pool. It just didn't fit musically, and at over 6 minutes long, it made the mix go over the 74-minute limit.

P.P.S. Full size tracklist on flickr.

Nice one, matildaben. I'll give it a listen when I can. As soon as I read your track list, the chorus to Dave Mason's "We Just Disagree" ran through my head.

Because of the cheese, not because we disagree.

THis will make great office party psych-up music for my company's open bar shindig tonite. It's amazing how much some of the chicks in the office deck themselves out for this. Lotta cleavage and tight jeans for a cold day.

It's got Brandy! And a unicorn! Today's turning out to be a great day.

Jon, that totally makes my day.

Finally DL'd and extracted it. I just fired up "Jailbreak." That song brings out my inner delinquent. Makes me wanna bust windows and loiter and shit.

God Bless Phil Lynott, wherever he is.

This is great. It's shitty out today, so this is a nice surprise.

I love "Bloody Well Right". Thank you.

LT can't post from work, but he says he thinks the compilers were togdon, yodelingisfun, miles, and himself. Props to them.

That? Is seriously cool, matildaben. I will download it tonight.

Oh, hell yeah. Thanks, matildaben!

I actually found the original list when I was cleaning my house the other day (no idea how it came home with me, other than it appears to be in my writing). We re-purposed the Table Tots sign, and started compiling the list as a suggestion of 'awful' songs we'd rather hear than the ones that were playing at the bar...

Thanks for compiling it, shame that Montana couldn't fit.

No John Denver. Sob.

There was music at the bar?

For the first time I was able to download a large file from YSI! Though I had to do it twice... maybe that's the trick?

And... you really, really cheered up my morning, matildaben. For Midnight at the Oasis alone, I kiss you a thousand times.

This is excellent, matildaben (& contributors). I'm all over jukebox hero (my mom had that f'ner album). Thank you!

So wonderful! I never thought this would see the light of day. Sounds great and bring on feelings of fromage I never knew I had. Thanks for warming my winter heart!

I'm up to "Goodbye Stranger" and having so much fun blasting this through the lab. So awesome. Thanks again, matildaben.

Kids, kids! This was a blast to make with Matilda. The Unicorn brought the entire fromagilicioius event to a apex, no question. Please note the amazing Fruit Stripe Gum Unicorn hide for extra 70's kickassedness.

Even though I didn't pony up the 5 bucks, Portland mefis are awesome and deserve a shrine.

Oh, and for present-day Cheeze, may I present the current Video Awards on VH1, Big-Ole-Something or Other 2005.
Hold me...
