Easy as 1-2-3
There’s another great Green Monkey Music Project over at Splotchy’s place. I got to play this time — and I earned my GMMP Master Badge badge in the process. If only I could get that Making a Fire badge, too …
This mix is a fun, elementary one: alphabetical tracks. Herr Splotch asked the contestants to pick a geometric to get our ABCs.
I wound up with Z — last, but certainly not least. I whined at first (how many songs beginning with Z can you think of?), but in minutes I had thirteen tracks. I decided not to take the easy “Ziggy Stardust” route (although my Wilco and Bauhaus covers are pretty cool, and one can never go wrong with Bowie).
I narrowed it down to what I think are five cool Z tunes:
- R.E.M.: Zither
- Brooklyn Funk Essentials: Zurna Preserve
- Guided by Voices: Zap
- Stan Getz feat. Astrud Gilberto: Zazueira
- Young Marble Giants: Zebra Trucks
Show of hands for those surprised to find an R.E.M. track among my Zs? Anyone?
Here’s a bonus that didn’t make the cut:
If I had read Splotchy’s e-mail more closely, I would have known I was on the hook for just one track — but who could cut any of these beautz?

Show of hands for those who love Splotchy and GMMP!
