Making a mix for someone else is sort of tricky, I find. You have to make sure the songs are pleasing to the other person, but at the same time you want it to remain wholly you. I'm not sure if I've mastered that or not, but I like this mix nonetheless.

I'm currently involved in a long distance relationship, and I made this mix for my lover's journey on her way back home (I'm giving it to her next time she comes to see me). About half of the songs represent how much I miss her when she's gone and how desparately I don't ever want her to go, but the other half are just fun driving tunes. I dig it, and I hope it's diggable to the rest of you, world.

I am surprised by the lack of comments here. This is well-rounded entertainment!

This looks great! I find that "Bowl of Oranges" tends to add pep to any mix too. If you ever want to trade, let me know.
