...of the entire Long Winters catalogue! Yippee!!

I don't actually posess TWYCDIH yet, but I should take posession in about 2-3 days.

Wow, it was about 7 months ago I got WIPTF, and it'll be about 7 months before the next one comes out...I'm liable to get spoilt.

THAT ALBUM IS BETTER THAN MAKE OUT.

Maybe it depends on how recently one has
made out? If, say, I make out all the time
then it is old hat and TLW records are WAY
better than make out. But, if I have never
made out before, and I listen to TLW all of
the time, I'd probably be on the side of the
make out.

Let's think for a minute about both at once.

does making out ever get old? Do the LW ever get old? Now I´m confused :(

I've never thought of the long winters as makeout music... maybe a song or two, but overall? weird.

They're really not, it was just coincidental, but still fully appropriate.

Hahaha, I totally didn't mean it that way. I was just saying the album is pretty great.

But I also don't see why you gals find the direction this took so weird. Then again, I like to put on Portishead, so maybe i'm not an accurate judge of whats weird.

I used to have that mix lying around of cool songs which always included Massive Attack's Angel and Sneaker Pimp's Six Underground.
A friend of mine used Elliott Smith's XO on several occasions, while an ex girlfriend of mine liked Tori Amos.

Moral of the story: Portishead is great to make out to (and a lot less lame, or even weird) than above!

all i know is that "sun through the curtains" + it'll be a breeze + making out = a very good thing.

It'll be a breeze used to be the best song to make out to, until my friend Dave (the same one with the Elliott Smith Action Plan™ above) told me that he got a little teary-eyed, a week or so after he and my closest friend broke up, after listening to it and it suddenly making complete sense. Now I can't think of anything else but that image of him getting teary eyed in the car.

first of all-- I don't usually put on music. so my opinion may be disqualified. there's music on pretty much all the time, but I'm not a mood setter. it just seems so contrived. makes me feel weird. I like to "set the scene" and "create a mood" while on stage, not in personal relationships. I know that's weird, but perhaps I'm just a little overly crazy about keeping the acting and drama on the stage and not in your life. I think I hang out with too many theatre types, so I'm super paranoid about all things that do not seem honest.

all that aside. when I hear portishead, bjork, and radiohead I think of makeout time.

perhaps I need happier associations with makeout time?

That makes sense.

But I encourage you try it! Don't think of adding music as "creating a mood", just think of it as enhacing the experience. It's nice to have another one of your senses stimulated.

sometimes it seems too distracting though. funny. I just realized how funny that is. the distracting part is supposed to be the making out.

I often have music on, so whatever's playing is it. I guess I don't listen to much make out music.

I won't deny that there have been a few times when music definately enhanced, but I don't know...

give me a makeout soundtrack list.
