I made this tape in the beginning of the year, before everyone and their mom was sick of the Jimmy Eat World and No Doubt songs. My only real purpose in making it was to show my friends at home how much better the radio stations in Chicago (where I go to school) are than in Minnesota, where I live. I'd say I succeeded halfway. And if anyone knows who sings the "Lose It" song, let me know! It's the one that goes "I walked in on my girl at a bad time."

wish I could help you out with the song.. but the Ben Kweller song - oh oh soo soo soo good
even better in concert, I love that man!
(I can blame him for my new nickname, spaghetti, he pointed at me and said, "you know what I'm talkin' about" right after the "having sex reminds her of eating spaghetti" lyric)

Used to live in Chicago, and you are right. Not only do they have the best Commercial radio stations in the country, they have the best food as well. I miss it.
Cool mix. Love the Avalanches.

Hey, this is really good. :)

The fact that there is a place where commercial stations play good music makes me feel good.. the fact that I'm not in listening range of these stations makes me pretty damn sad. Guess my bank account will just have to keep depleting in order to feed my CD habit AKA search-for-good-music until I move.

Oh, oh! This all sounds quite good. And I'm starting school in Chicago in less than a month... any recommendations for radio stations there that play this sort of music?

Ooh. This sounds right up my alley. ^^

Yeah, Jimmy Eat World and that No Doubt song sure are annoying now. I liked them too before they were overplayed. This is a good mix!

here's my ben kweller story: i met him in bufallo after a show. i asked him for a high five. he gave me a high five and told me i was fantastic. his bassist was macking on 12-year-olds. the end.

I'm a Chicago man myself.

94.7 changed from classic rock to alternative (competing with 101.1), which was rather sad. But yes, I definately took the radio stations @ home for granted. DC radio is a bit shoddy.

I went to law school in South Bend, so I pined for the days when I could jump on the Toll Road and get to Chi-town!
