Nyah!

Perhaps just to prove my capacity for strenuous research (and procrastination), I compiled a tracklisting by ear of the absolute all-time classic mix CD, Nyah, which I located today when searching for a power brick completely by accident.

  1. Ameno – Era
  2. The Energy – Audiovent
  3. The World I Know – Collective Soul
  4. Outside of Me – Killing Heidi
  5. One Last Breath – Creed
  6. No Such Thing – John Mayer
  7. Wonderful – Everclear
  8. All Star – Smashmouth
  9. Everything – M2M
  10. I’m Too Sexy – MC Hammer
  11. Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Mix) – Rob D
  12. Outside – Staind
  13. Stop Crying Your Heart Out – Oasis
  14. Disease – Matchbox 20
  15. Underneath It All – No Doubt
  16. 2′s Company – Charlton Hill
  17. Sk8er Boi – Avril. (Of course!)
  18. I Can’t Wait – Hilary Duff
  19. Like a Prayer – Rufio

Ameno, the Like a Prayer cover, and Charlton Hill posed the most difficulties. But discovering the CD in a declining state, the power of such preservation efforts in the interest of nostalgia are well worth it.

Good. Times.

Digital restoration and redistribution required, methinks ;-) It’s funny because a lot of the tracks I heard and thought I’d done something bad to my headphones, then realised that’s just what highly compressed tracks off Napster sounded like back in the day. It’s been a while…
