description:
This mix is inspired by my favorite movie — "The Third Man" — which I think is a great travel movie. I guess my ideal vacation involves crumbling grandeur, dark alleys and a sense of unease. Seriously! But I need more than just zither music playing in the background.

I liked the same stretch as turtle but in my case include CYHSY with the good stuff! Don't know the movie but can get the atmosphere from the mix. Nicely done.

Mixtape Contest XVII -- Third Place badge
Mixtape Contest XVII -- Third Place
The age-old tradition of Three Kings Day is to fill the shoes of good children with candy, while they sleep. Bad children get shoes filled with scorpions and other venomous creatures. Congrats on third place!
