Don't you hate rejection? And don't you hate it when all your best friends are out of town and there's no-one to talk to? What better way to get it all out than to make a tape of music that expressed exactly how I was feeling. That was basically my only criterion for choosing songs.

Side A is mainly songs I find dark, passionate and beautiful (with a much-needed needed hint of joy at "Angel of Harlem"). By "Unfinished Sympathy" I was starting to feel less depressed - and then I just started feeling angry at myself. So Side B is a bit more torturous (although its starts off fairly fun).

I played this in the car with some friends recently. By "Tomorrow Wendy" they were saying they wanted to kill themselves. I felt proud.

(Sorry for all the detail - I just have really distinctive memories of choosing each and every song on the tape. It was intense 90 minutes.)

wow - this mix really speaks to me right now. (I am currently making one too). Love the Ben Lee, COldplay, MAssive attack - but especially love the title...

Um, "Burn To Shine" is by Ben Harper, not Ben Lee, isn't it? The Whitlams tune is a good one, and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is a really inspired choice.
