yeah...camel lights would go real well with this mix. throw in a dos equis and i'm there. it makes me think of the boy from school i probably can't have. 'oh, comely' is his(by virtue of playing it so beautifully) and 'nothing came out' is mine(by virtue of being how i feel about him). lovely.

This is pretty damned good. It's a shame that you had to feel so bad first to make it.

the cliche is really the whole notion of compiling some of your favorite somber songs simply to perpetuate feelings of sadness. these kinds of mixes rarely work to better one's situation, but yet i feel strangely compelled to torture myself in this way. if you're gonna sulk, you might as well have something good to sing along to. this i have learned. bloody hell.

This is beautiful. Even though, as you say, the mix perpetuates your feelings of sadness, it's still nice to listen to music you dig in times like these.

Nice inclusion of the Wilco/Billy Bragg tune, and the Morphine tune - great songs, even in times opposite of the cliche sadness.
