Editors’ Notes

It's hard to date exactly when the radio stopped being much of a vital force in young people's lives in terms of their discovery and enjoyment of new sounds; surely it predates the mp3 player, and television programs such as the OC? It's almost as it's hard to pinpoint when the OC itself stopped being a vital force in turning kids onto hip music. And while viewers' attention may have begun to drift by the time of the insanely successful show's final season, Music from the OC: Mix 5 just might be the best of all the O.C. mixes. This particular collection shies away from the trademark singer-songwriter fare towards a more danceable electronic and four-on-the-floor rock type sound. From the throwaway brilliance of LCD Soundsystem's "Daft Punk is Playing at My House" to Youth Group's campy take on "Forever Young," this is the ideal soundtrack to youthful exuberance and likely as strong a time capsule of hipster listening habits circa '05 as one is likely to find.

Customer Reviews

The OC mix 5

The OC mix is amazing. it has all these great songs and bands that bring better music to people! I love itt!!!

i don't like the OC but i LOVE this album

hey, ok for starters i am not here to bash the OC. i've seen it once and i just wasn't into it. i don't have a passionate hate for it or anything but i don't like it. but thing is, they have amazing music choice. i like almost all of the songs on here. i think that this is a fabulous outlet for great unknow indie bands such as ROGUE WAVE. by being on such a populare show it gives them a chance to appeal to a whole new crowd of people opposed to the normal indie kids such as myself. i own tracks 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 12. all of which i adore. i've heard of the other bands and i just previewed those that i do not have and i like them already hahaha. even PHANTOM PLANET's california (regular and 2005) isn't too bad. i'd just like to say thank you to those people who chose these songs to put onto the OC and reaffirm that not all people are jerks about not liking the OC (esspecially us indie rockers lol)

the oc is the best!

The Oc is the greatest show ever!!! the music is awesome, the show is great! whats not to love about it?this album is great! get it!!!!
