The HimPlus Mix-Tape

Vote for your fave. And tell us which songs you would add.

1. The HimPlus Mix-Tape starts, naturally, with "Mrs. Robinson" by the Lemonheads. What? Who were you expecting?

2. "Baby Man," from the great bluesy-jazz piano player Gene Harris. It's an instrumental, so no lyrics. Probably that's a good thing. You can make up your own.

3. She'll be your pacifier. Ann Peebles says, "Come to Mama."

4. Ella Fitzgerald's first song on this list: "You Make Me Feel So Young."

5. Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About" was on the radio when we started dating. We took inspiration from Bonnie's sassy ways.

6. Ella2: "They All Laughed." Ha.

7. I love Sarah Vaughn's version of "Experience Unnecessary." But this video featuring Donna Theodore is the grooviest.

8. Grand finale: Coo-coo-ca-choo.


  1. Great list! "Experience Unnecessary" was the best!!!


  2. That was great fun!
    Top 3
    "Come to Mama"
    "Experience Unnecessary"
    "They all laughed"

    Love Mrs. Robinson but overdone.
