This evening I compiled my first ever iMix: The Original Songs From The Mirror (link requires iTunes to be installed).
What is an iMix?
With iTunes and the iTunes Music Store, you can publish your music recommendations for friends and family anytime.
When you publish a playlist at the iTunes Music Store, itâ€™s called an “iMix.” iMixes allow others to preview your favorite songs and purchase the ones they want. Creating your own iMix on the iTunes Music Store is as easy as clicking a button.
Creating an iMix
Creating my compilation was pretty straight-forward:
- Create a new playlist of tracks
- Go to File > Create an iMix …
- Add a few details
- Click Done
- Er …
- That’s it!
The Original Songs From The Mirror
Yesterday I was listening to Fish’s 1993 album Songs From The Mirror, a recording of some of the songs that inspired Mr Derek W. Dick as he was growing up and getting into this thing we call music. These were his songs from the mirror — we’ve all sung along to our favourite bands while miming into the mirror … haven’t we?
Well, my iMix compilation pulls together the original songs:
- Question by The Moody Blues
- Boston Tea Party by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band
- Fearless by Pink Floyd
- Apeman by The Kinks
- Hold Your Heady Up by Argent
- I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) by Genesis
- Solo by Sandy Denny
- Time and a Word by Yes
- The Seeker by The Who
- Jeepster by T. Rex
- Five Years by David Bowie
Update: I’ve now included Jeepster by T. Rex.
