This a repost of a Twisted Mixtape from last year. It features some great A Capella music along with some wonderful mixtapes from some old friends!
Later on we’ll transpire, as we dream by the fire……
Psych! this week’s theme is Dealer’s Choice, but apparently not everyone is a gambler, what?! It’s not just that, I’m confused, isn’t that a saying? Doesn’t everyone say it? “It’s dealer’s choice folks!” – No? Hmmm…….
Well what I meant to say is – You Choose The Theme! – yes folks you’re the dealer and it’s your choice! So have at it, do what you will, we reserve the right to ….. like it anyway? Yup. Like it anyway!
Unfortunately for you (maybe) I listen to Christmas music from the middle of November to roughly Valentine’s Day. Sue me, I have seasonal affective disorder, and if you don’t want me to go postal, I need me my Christmas music. So you’re getting another Christmas playlist! How happy are you!!! I know, I know, you can thank me later.
Believe it or not, I only have 552 holiday genre songs on my iTunes, which is definitely not enough to get me through 3 months. Enter Pandora, lately I find myself relying heavily on them for music. I’ve just gotten sooooo tired of organizing my iTunes into new playlists when the mix gets boring. Now Pandora does it for me, and then I just abandon stations when I get bored. So I have 7 Pandora Christmas Playlists, I have always loved The Swingle Singers, but thanks to the show The Sing Off, A Capella music is getting a serious booster shot! One of my new favorite new Pandora lists is the one I built on the vocal group, Straight No Chaser…

As I mentioned last week, each week through January, I am going to showcase a blogger who is a friend to Twisted MixTape by doing their best to stop by all the mixes and say hello.
Thank you for listening! Now share your MixTape with all of us. The best part of this party is we get to hear so much music that may be new, may be forgotten or may be just what you wanted to hear right now.
These are the rules. Five songs (do your best to stick to it, I listen to every mix). Stick to the theme (as best you can). Check out the other players (everyone wants to share their tunes with you). Create a mix, not a “hey look at all the cool songs I know” we’re not snobs, if you were our best bud and you were gonna make us a tape, what would it be? And share this party so more people will play next week!
Do me a favor, if you’re a veteran, try and visit at least one person you’ve never visited before.
If you’re still here, thanks! I would love it if you checked out my site, Raised on the Radio.
