Everyday is Like Sunday, Except for Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday, and...Well, Friday I'm in Love: Weekly Mixes #52 and #53


Because I missed last week's mix, I'm giving you two today. The first, a Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's Day compilation, would have been more effective last week, but as I generally forget about the day in question (see last year's post), it doesn't really matter. The first half of it takes a positive look at love while the second half does the opposite, although some of the songs lie somewhere in between. The second mix's theme is underdogs/outsiders/rebels in honour of the brand new provincial holiday here in Manitoba: Louis Riel Day. For those who don't know who Riel was, he was a Métis leader who led two major rebellions on the Canadian prairies in the late 19th century - these events bookended his exile in the States - and who negotiated the terms for Manitoba becoming its own province. From what I remember from my Grade 11 Canadian History class, Riel was a controversial figure who was initially seen as a crazy traitor, but who is now regarded somewhat as a hero (I also clearly remember that rather disturbing Heritage Minute video of his hanging). So, in honour of Monsieur Riel, most get a long weekend this weekend. And I've created a compilation of music for those outsider figures, who may rebel, who may be underdogs, who may be considered misfits by regular society. For anyone who said to him/herself, "I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo, I don't belong here." For anyone who feels that he/she is on the outside of society looking in. For anyone who gets the same weird looks he/she did in high school.
