Long live college. Soon we'll be too old to do this and we'll fall asleep immediately after reruns of headbanger's ball and we'll snore too loudly and be told that we have sleep apnea and that we need to watch our cholesteral and then it will ALL be over.

...This is a testament to word association. Notice how the first few tracks relate to staying up, and from then on it's just a toss up? Yeah. That's called ADD. It's also called "This song totally just reminded me of..." and in the end, that is how a mix is born that truly captures the emotion in its title. Enjoy. And don't sleep.

This is such a great mix, very diverse. I love the transition from new wave to classic rock to soul and then on to rock, punk, etc. And Ted Leo? Holy crap. LOVE LOVE LOVE Ted Leo. Well done.
