I Should Not Be Allowed To Touch Anything: The Best Of The Mountain Goats
Creator of the Mix: Rev. Syung Myung Me
Initial Notes About The Mix: Yesterday, a friend of mine mentioned wanting to give The Mountain Goats another try, so I just made this compilation for him. I didn't put too much effort into trackorder, since The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy was on, and we were watchin' that, because that show is awesome. In fact, I kinda half-assed this compilation; I basically took all the Mountain Goats songs I'd rated 5 stars in iTunes (which was a lot of them), and then pared them down to stuff that I knew I wanted, and then stuff that I remembered liking, but couldn't remember what they were (the one thing with The Mountain Goats is the songtitles aren't often terribly descriptive -- or rather, they ARE, just of things other than the song). But anyway, though, really, these songs are all very good, and the albums they come from are awesome. There's a pretty good mix of the Studio Stuff and the Boom Box stuff, too, which is always good. I would have included "The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton", but I knew he'd had that one already since he has a copy of Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!, so that'd be a waste of 2 and a half minutes or however long it is. Quality-wise, though, that song is awesome and would totally belong, though. Anyway, though, here it is, half-assed though it may be.
