So I just joined and saw this contest about what we used to listen to and I racked my brain and then decided upon searching out one of my old mixtapes. I, like I still do, started my meager CD collection a mere 9-10 years ago with the goal of keeping my collection not in alphabetical order but in chronological order and keeping a mixtape was helpful in putting a song from each album - in order, mind you - on the tape. So here it is. Enjoy!
