things learned during the creation of this mix: my music taste has changed a great deal since i was 13, but my in ability to throw any of it away comes in any when making a 2 hour themed mix.

Any significance to the order of the colours, or is it just what sounds good? It seems you have a bit of a summer/winter thing going on, but maybe there's something more. I really dig the idea of book-ending both sides with songs that are slightly set apart from the theme (ie. no colour reference in the title.) It's a neat spin on an old trick; plus I'm a sucker for the Counting Crows. Nie work. Out.

i made this mix last year, so it's not entirely fresh in my mind, but i'm pretty sure that i started organizing the colours based on some song i played on the piano when i was 8: "red and yellow and pink [sadly absent] and green. purple and orange and blue." then i have no idea why i picked the particular order of the remaining colours. i really like your idea of the summer/winter theme though.
