If you've ever had occasion to listen to the soft rock, whether it was during a road-trip hostage crisis, or while hunting and gathering at the grocer's, or while waiting to have a tooth pulled, then you know how depressing it can be and how appropriate many of genre's songs would be for inclusion on a suicide mixtape. Drifting away to the sounds of that ever-so-lilting AM flotsam and jetsam might just be the ticket for softly going into the night. And if that's a dreadful thought for you to think, then think of this tape as a sad bastard mix tucked away for a rainy day*.


Post Script- (I'd rather listen to this tape than R.E.M.'s "Automatic For the People" like a certain famous someone did before finishing himself off with a bang. But whatevers.)

*Disclaimer: This is a hypothetical suicide mixtape. It's not the first or the last to be made in the wide world of mixtapes. Life is great, more or less. This isn't meant to be all scary. Thanks.

Track Description:
This is an upbeat song, which is not really depressing, but it makes me sad for some reason. Maybe it's because it's such a sweet way of saying, "Hey, I ain't gonna tie you down, let's just get together tonight, sweet stuff." This song also sort of works on a "Ain't No Permanent Thing" mix.

I find most of these songs hypnotizing in their mellow melodious sways.

I was sitting alone at a bar in a foreign land and this song came on. Along with the self service beer taps, playing songs like that one had to increase the night's take for the bar.

Track 24 from Offbeat: A Red Hot Sound Trip
Length: 00:05:36
Year: 1996
Track Description:
This is an instrumental ambient track MBV made with Skylab for a charity album. It's rather vague like a fugue state so I mixed the the following track inside the song's gently rumbling haze for a final send off. This kind of breaks the soft rock theme, but the song entwined within hopefully keeps the theme alive to the bitter end.
