We've all got one. There's always that one boy or girl who has the somewhat dubious distinction of being the first person to break your heart. Chances are it happened when you were in your late teens or (as in my case) your early twenties. We survive and can often (as in my case) look back kindly on that person.I creat_ed my first mix tapes for this particular woman and most all of them had one thing in common: they were kinda sad. This is slightly embarrassing in retrospect, but at the time I thought it was romantic. A kind of "doomed love"-type thing. Gives me a wry smile just thinking about it.Years have passed, my musical tastes (and collection) have expanded in every which way, and now I crank out mixes of all shapes and sizes (musically speaking). However, that taste for the melancholy still exists. After all, I threw together Grayside Tales and Games, Blame, And Hard Luck Dames, so it's not like I don't still stroll down that road occasionally.This is one of those occasions. Soft And Broken is yet another of those odd mixes that began as one thing and slowly morphed into another. The feel of all the tunes is very similar, but the styles of music aren't exactly kissing cousins. Well, they are to my ears, but I'm just like that. So enjoy.

After listening to this i find the first 5 tracks to be completely awesome and the rest of the mix was well done too.

The whole playlist is too fine to be denied. Sometimes a touch of melancholy is a good thing.

FAN-DAMN-TASTIC! I listened to this all morning, and I absolutely *love* it. Thanks for providing a mix that's gonna play for months to come.

I'm with Tex on the first 5. This is just my kind of mix, all the way through. MOTW if someone wants to attempt it.
