Robert Smiths Slightly Mad Pop Pop Canon Cannon Bang Bang Wake (Interstitial Mix #1)

I have received numerous messages from listeners wondering when I will return. There are indeed new projects in development, but this is all taking quite a good deal of my time. A surprising number of you have expressed to me how much you’ve missed my music cues. So I have decided to offer a number of thematic interstitial mixes to give loyal listeners something to bite on in the meantime.

What follows is a descent into the contradictions of pop music, initiated by one Robert Smith trapped in the framework of a famous Lionel Richie composition. While the mix is enjoyable on its own terms, there are many hidden associations for those wishing to play along. Interpretations of this madness are, of course, quite welcome in the comments. I have provided the playlist below. Enjoy!

    Thank you! The Jackson/Brown mashup was pure heaven. Just how the guitar-riff replaces the ‘Yeah yeah’ after every ‘Get up, get over’, wow and wow again!
