Comment:

66 min. for me:) title from #13 I am very proud of this mix because i love the theme here of uncertain love. its been pretty repetitive in my life.... Every insecurity, every "do you really think so?", every "there's no way he's into me" or "i don't know what to do" is wrapped up in this mix. When you KNOW for sure you have that connection with someone but you're just right there on the edge of love. this is the mix that describes the emotions of one of life's more torturous phases. this is PRE-LoVe. the mind games, the physical games, the furtive glances....the strange feeling that you actually prefer this to a real relationship...that with this, you have more control





1. this zombie track was absolutely perfect, if you feel what i feel then we are all good,,,
2. the classic "do you treat with everyone like this?"? am i special???
3/4. i love these tracks, when they belt it, you FEEEEEL it. i like these two next to each other too.
9/10 also perfectly sums up the theme here, and i like how it flows into coxon's glorious little tune
11/13 these two songs were the inspiration for the mix
16. mason jennings advice on the subject "jump right in!!"
sometimes this can have good results or bad consequences
17. this is the "Okay im going to jump......but i got a parachute" -if you know how to love yourself you will always land on your feet, self love=the parachute plus this song is beautiful
18. calm thyself everything will be okay
19. i wrestled between putting this as the closer and putting "true love will find you in the end" as the closer. I chose this one because its more closely connected with the theme, and i especially love the lyrics,
When you make someone into a superhero
know that they will fly
and they will see right through you
they will burn so bright
that they will make you blind
love can screw you up and make you blind but eventually it will find you...i also like the "fly" reference here tying it back to the fear of "falling", jumping right in, and the parachute. the process of love is so tremendously consuming, but so worth it.

you add "br" between two carets "", if you google "HTML tips" you can get lots of formatting tips.
