Well, this is not actually a break-up mix per se. It's a mix in response to torgar's mix, "have we come untied?", which he classified as breakup. So. The Whigs track is listed as "Reprise" because it appeared on another mix I gave this boy, a long while back, before all our troubles. The beginning tracks set up the how and the why for the relationship hiatus that I instigated; the latter part of the mixes changes mood, gets a little lighter, a little more willing to reconsider- "I keep coming back for a little more of your love". Yep, I do. There's a reason for that, but let's tread carefully, shall we? There's a whole 9 tracks preceding that one documenting my pain and sense of abandonment, so.. caution, boy. Caution.
