Some people might rightfully accuse me of posting too many mixes lately, but I couldn´t help myself with this one. And that´s because it combines my two favorite things in the world, music and cinema.

It´s the fourth addition in the We Make It Good mix series, and after a shitty and noisy try from Sinden and a better one from Chris Devlin, Xxxchange steps up and delivers a masterpiece. All the songs from Rolling Stones too Harry Bellafonte have been featured in movies, which is a pretty cool gimmick as far as gimmicks go.

22. The Greenehornes ft. Holly Golightly – There is an End
