This is a themed mix I made for a friend at the end of my freshman year of college. I was on the verge of transferring and deciding whether to take time off; she was on the verge of graduating and deciding what the fuck to do with her life. We were both a little confused. Songs like "These Days", "My Horoscope..", "Thought I Was", et al sort of encapsulate our mutual mood at the time. Standard choices on my part but new to her. I was reminded of this mix because, lo and behold, 2 years later we are in the same city- though not the same borough, ack- and she wanted a new copy.
The Bruce track is a nod to my Jersey roots for her amusement and good cheer. The Andy Milonakis tune was an unlisted track in completely bad taste, but I thought once she got over the shock she'd have a good laugh, and she did. We recently stood outside Tower Records in NYC and recited some of the more poignant lyrics to each other.
