This is a tape I made for my family's trip up to Yreka. I lived there from age 6 to age 13 before we moved to Sacramento. Since we've moved here we don't really leave the city that often, unless it's to go to... you know... another city (San Francisco). It's gonna be kind of trippy to be back "home."

I also had to make it relatively clean so my little brother wouldn't flip out.

Well, this tape is kind of a compare/contrast sort of thing. And also we're going to the country. This song is one of the mellow, "country" songs on the list which remind me of my destination.

Since we were actually supposed to get to our small-town destination that Saturday night (we had to turn back and leave again the next day because my mom forgot her medication), I thought this one had a little bit of fun irony with it. Also, my dad likes Kaiser Chiefs.

Year: 1987
Track Description:
Slowing things down for a minute, I'd rather NOT go back to the old house, and it's actually kind of impossible as the house we used to live in got demolished. My dad intentionally had it demolished. I kind of had a breakdown the night before we left, also, because there were some very bad circumstances which caused us to have to move. You can hate the Smiths all you want but this song kind of needed to be on this mix.

Track 6 from Jailbreak
Length: 00:04:28
Year: 1976
Track Description:
Yet another pacifier for my dad, and also this mix was built on a very flawed scale of time - this was meant to have us pulling under the Weed arch triumphantly proclaiming that we are back in the town in which we all grew up. However, the drive is about three and a half hours longer than this mix. So... it proved an encouraging song to have on as we drove through the 118 degree weather in Redding.

I agree with Sledge on the Modest Mouse song. But truthfully, if you had put any of their songs on here I would have cringed--I just don't like them (Thanks to Booty!). But I'm not going to let that one song influence the entire rating. It seems like a poppy and light radio mix, which kinda fits the theme. +

No offense to anyone in particular but if FLOAT ON gets put on another mix after this one, the mix is getting an automatic -5 from me. Sorry, but come on...its been used 6 times on mixes. I would say that song and johnny cash - hurt are used too much. Both Modest mouse and Johnny cash have many many songs, besides those two. Im not going to mark this one down however. + for some good stuff on here, -1 for the stuff that im sure whackedtollie can guess. I think this my favorite of your mixes thus far. Good job.
