One of my best friends isn't so well versed in classic rock and has a crush on a girl who loves classic rock. I offered to make him a mix, and since his record player and CD player are out of commission, he can only listen to tapes.

I hope he likes it. He's an obscure metalhead with a taste for the 80s, so hopefully he'll find a few songs that he likes on here. Since our music taste rarely overlaps, I'm hoping that I gave enough variety for him to find a few songs he likes. I tried to balance album cuts with singles that he'd recognize.

Also, this is a working title. I'm not sure what I'll call it when it's done.

And now, the notes about the notable songs:

Side 1:

1. He has dreads. He's about to cut them off so he can maximize his job options. 'nuff said.

6. We are about to begin our junior year of college. We met as freshmen in the dorm. He wore his Doors shirt sometimes, and our friend Ariel and I would sing Doors songs to him. This is my favorite Doors song lately.

10. I was actually hoping to use the Joe Cocker version of this, but it was too much work. I'm lazy. The Beatles will have to do, and that's okay. This is still great.

11. Seriously? Do you really need to ask?

Side 2:

1. This is stretching it, but since my friend does love beer, I thought he'd appreciate it.

4. I'm 20 years old. When I was six or seven, my mother almost cried when she heard me singing a lullaby to my sister. The lullaby? "Splendid Isolation". When I was seven, I was furious that Warren Zevon only played 21+ shows, and was going to write him a letter telling him how mad I was. I don't think I ever mailed it.

All of these songs I am totally jamming right now. I hate repeating songs on mixes so much, but those songs just seem to be so perfect.

Good stuff. Love the Beatles (but then again, I love anything by them, so I'm insanley bias. Kinks are awesome, nice CCR pick, I haven't listend to that in a while.
And, I thought that Jo Cocker just did a version of 'With a Little Help From My Friends', and not 'She Came In Through The Bathroom Window'
And thanks for the comment on my mix. I'm looking forward to more of your stuff. It's good to see that another 20 year old has the same appreication for the old stuff. : )

the e-mail isn't working for some reason. soooo: thanks for the comment on my mix. I promise you I'll say the same things about a depression mix of yours should you ever make one. Peace.

cool, seems lots of thought went into this one, hope it's appreciated. I'm sure it will be, since these are some great tunes.
