This is the first mix that I've made since I was about ten and wrecked my parent's turntable trying to make a tape. I made this using iTunes, which was much easier! I made this for my younger sister, who asked to hear some of the music that I like. I tried to choose songs that I thought she might like as well, so it's not entirely representative of my tastes, but in a Venn Diagram this is where she and I might cross over. (If she likes it ...)
