Comment:

Each side is also titled but I didn't have room at the top. Side A: Must I dream and always see your face, Side B: Smile in slow motion. I made this for Adrienne (my friend). We first began talking online through a common interest in music, learned we lived within one hour of each other, and discovered upon meeting that neither of us were pedophiles. We both love 80s music so I weaved it into the mix. She isn't as fond of female voices but I forced them in. Funny how this turned into a love mix. I meant for the songs to each tell a story from a different perspective, which ended up with a common theme of love (unintentional). Going down, the songs start with isolation and a fear of insanity which turns into an obsession that other songs seemingly care less for. Jeff Buckley on-down shows the beauty of love through pain, thought and desire. I wanted Side 2 to contrast it's reflecting song on Side 1 to provide an answer or opinion, as well as to make the songs flow from left to right, and up to down. I wanted to create a story, bringing songs into the same relationship. It would be like sitting at a circular table listening to each person tell their story and experiencing each reaction. I'm not sure this made any sense. The songs are also some of my favorites. I tried not to repeat artists but I liked the idea of Radiohead beginning and ending the mix. I also wanted the mix to end on a hopeful-summery note, hence the second B & S song.

Nicely done. Jeff Buckley, The Smiths, Radiohead, The Ramones...some of the best shit available. However, I'm a little weary of the Natalie Imbruglia track. I suppose it has a personal meaning though. Anyway, it's a sweet ass mix.

This looks pretty great. Lots of great tunes on it and it seems like you put a lot of thought into the whole thing, which is cool. Nice work.

By the way, Just Like Heaven is, like, my favorite song ever. In fact, there's that and at least one other song on this that is my favorite ever. Hmmm...

The last Radiohead track doesn't exactly fit. It cuts after "...true loves lives on lollipops and crisps". I'd cut out a bit of "Hold Me Now" since it's over 6 minutes long! Oh and the Natalie Imbruglia song...it's fun to belt out. It basically fit the mood. No hidden meaning. Haha! Thanks everyone!
