I'm revisiting my first and only mix on Art of the Mix 12 years later. I posted "I Just Can't Win" during a particularly difficult time in my life. Now I'm 12 years older, wiser, and have had to accept the sad and bitter truth that life doesn't get any easier as you go on.

"I Just Can't Win vol. 2" takes a turn into more urban and soulful territory than the original, but carries on with the same theme: All of you poor, downtrodden, overworked and underpaid folk are not alone. This is music for the unlucky. Plain and simple.
