The Memory Palace: Palpatine Soundtrack.

Fandom: Star Wars
Character: Palpatine/Darth Sidious
Genre: Orchestrated music.
Theme/Concept: Music had always been a secret passion of the elder Sith Master. If only there were more time on his hands to enjoy it...
Compilation notes: I wanted to create a soundtrack that both reflected the sort of music Palpatine would have enjoyed, and the music that represented him and the empire he created.
Disclaimer: Of course I own none of this the characters, the music and the images (even the title itself!) belong to their respectful owners. I'm just borrowing them for a little innocent fun. So feel free to download and enjoy a tune or two of if you like the soundtrack entire =D

mix: great southern land

so, i come from australia. it's not a bad place. i like living here. but i've never been anywhere else. hopefully this is soon to change :)
today i filled out and sent away forms for rotary youth exchange. first on my list of preferences is canada, but really i'm not phased as to where they jet me off to if in fact i am chosen. it took me all day to fill out this four-page intensive questionnaire which asked such probing questions as;  "describe the occupations of both of your parents" (in all honesty my mother is unemployed and my father is deceased).
so, here is my little homage to australia. it is a mix of songs which feature references to australia in the title. i didn't think i'd find this many.
i started out doing a mix of songs with US place names in the title (eg. boston - augustana, hello i'm in delaware - city and colour, raining in baltimore - counting crows, etc), but thought i'd see if i could round up a couple of australian themed songs. perhaps a US city mix will follow at a later date.
adelaide by ben folds would have to be my favourite out of everything.
and, i'm sorry, but... i had to put in one bogan aussie song, "khe sahn" by cold chisel. hahaha.
the jason mraz and pennywise covers of men at work's "land down under" amused me.
admittedly, i think puddle of mud's "sydney" is about a girl called sydney and third eye blind's "darwin" doesn't seem to mention anything about the city, but i hope you'll let them slide ;)
i hope you enjoy, there's quite a mix of genres.

can anyone think of any more songs which reference australia in their title or lyrics?

fingers crossed they like my application and they decide to send me overseas next year :)
also, i hate that "where the bloody hell are you?" ad. it makes all australians seem like cussing, uncultured creatures, but i had to use it :D

so, in the words of track number 8, "come to australia, you might accidentally get killed".

Rules post

Welcome to mixshare! mixshare encourages its members to post complete mixes and playlists, along with cover art, that are available for download. They don't need to be themed or applicable to any particular fandom or event - simply sharing and recommending music in mix form is the modus operandi.

The Rules

1. This is NOT a request community, nor should it be used for question or discussion. Posts with entries like 'I'm looking for songs about graduation' or 'Does anybody have some good punk songs?' with be deleted by the mods.

2. Similarly, any promotions WILL BE DELETED. Every post should be a mix and nothing more.

3. Post each mix in a separate post. If you've made two mixes, great! Please make two different posts for them.

4. Your subject line should be either a title for the mix or a summary of genres and styles.

5. Please put your list of songs beneath an LJ cut. In the text for the LJ cut, please describe some genres of music covered by your mix. For instance: <*lj-cut text="Alternative, power pop, 60's rock"><*/lj-cut> [without the asterisks]

6. Mix posts are NOT just a list of songs. This is a sharing community. Please either upload each song separately or zip the files and upload the zip, and then post your link(s) in the post along with your mix. YouSendIt, MegaUpload and SendSpace are popular options with which to upload your music.

7. Cover art is not required, but it is encouraged. Get creative with your mixes! For photos, use Google Image Search or stock photos sites like Getty Images and Veer Images to get started. Quality is not a requirement - use anything from MS Paint to Photoshop!

8. If you do post a cover, please put all large images (larger than 200x200 pixels) beneath an LJ cut along with your mix. If you wish to preview the artwork, feel free to create a thumbnail image (200x200 for just the front cover, 400x200 for front and back).

9. Keep your posts friends-locked! They will be automatically locked - don't alter that, please!

10. Tag your entry with your username. This is in the interest of organization. Don't forget!

11. If you download a mix or song, be courteous and comment on that post.

12. Be polite! Don't mock or trash others' tastes in music. If you don't like the music, don't comment and don't download. Anyone who displays any severe disrespect will be banned.

13. Have fun!
