Anyone out there remember the art of the mixtape? My friends and I would spend hours coming up with the perfect A and B sides, creating thematically appropriate cover art and both giving and receiving them like the special gems they were. The best ones told a story. I’ve kept many of those tapes and still listen to them. Like one that my best friend made for my Europe jaunt called Please Don’t Go that I can’t listen to without feeling the lulling motion of trains or seeing sunsets on a ferry bound for Greece.
There were breakup stories, crush stories, we’re great friend stories. I’ve tried to recreate that feeling with playlists I’ve made, but it’s never quite reached those same levels of emotion connection for me. That said, I’m going to give it a shot and tell you a love story in 10 songs.
There will be no explaining. Just songs. For those of you who’ve read the series, well, see if it resonates with your experience. And with those of you who haven’t?
Sit back, relax, and listen as I tell you a story …
1) History Repeating – Shirley Bassey & Propellerheads
2) Madness – Muse
3) Let Go – Frou Frou
4) Amazing – George Michael
5) Beautiful – Christina Aquilera
6) Joy – Staxx

9) How You Like Me Now – The Heavy
