This is a mix meant to be given to a girl (or guy) that holds your interest.

The purpose of a mix like this is not to send 'hidden messages' to a person. That can be generally annoying.. it is not meant to say 'hey, look at me, I want you and I'm trying desperately to tell you that without having to actually tell you that'.. it doesn't work that way. Thats too overt, obvious, strong, and desperate. It is meant to slip youself effortlessly (well, it took ME effort to make this) into someone's mind.. to establish a cornerstone, build a base to work from.

Unless, of course you already have the girl, then all this thought and planning is pointless and you may as well throw whatever you want on there. Or if they're a pretentious bitch. Then they'll probably hate this, and you for making it. In which case she's no good for you anyways. Or too good for you depending on how you look at it.

Track 1 from Parachutes

Year: 2000
Track Description:
Ok, now this is the last of the bands that I actually hate but still have to put on here. I despise Coldplay, yet I just can't help but love this song. Girls generally ("generally" means i just made a gneralization, so don't get all pissy at me if you're a girl and don't like Coldplay.. besides I commend you for that) go apeshit for Coldplay, unless they're pretentious bitches, in which case you shouldn't be putting half this music on here anyways.

Besides you can't just give someone a mixtape full of great music that they've never heard of and expect them to love it. You have to give them something familiar that you know they'll come back for, and before you know it the rest of the music will grow on them and they'll be begging you for more!

Year: 1998
Track Description:
A great song to follow Beulah.. You don't want to be overt with the mix you make for a girl.. obvious "hidden messages" generally annoy.. the object is not to come on too strong, rather to slip yourself into her mind stealthily. This song will help mask the obviousness of some of the other songs on this album.

Track 7 from Heart
Length: 00:04:20
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I haven't really heard much of Stars. In fact, this is the only song I've actually heard. It was put on a mix for me by a really great friend.. actually several of the songs on this mix were put on mixes for me by her. In fact, I would have to credit her with me getting into Snow Patrol. Anyhow, if all their music sounds like this, I think I would like them.. but I've never had the chance to hear anything else yet.

Anyways, this is a great song, the male/female combo vocals do great.

Track 2 from Mermaid Avenue
Length: 00:04:58
Year: 1998
Track Description:
I was never a big fan of Wilco, mainly because I had only heard their latest albums, didnt like them that much, and was quite annoyed by all the people that where orgasming all over them.

Then I heard this great alt-country band (what?? weird.. country) that did a couple albums with the fantastic Billy Bragg, only to find out later that it was the same Wilco that all the indie kids were gushing over.

Anyways, I still prefer the Billy Bragg/Wilco albums far more than their own stuff. This is one of my favorite songs from those albums. Its really pretty (god im using that word a lot on this mix), and I really enjoy the guitar in this song.

Track 2 from Sumday

Track Description:
So many of the bands on this mix I disliked before ever really giving them a chance. Grandaddy is another one of them.. I finally realized how much I like Grandaddy one day when one of their songs was in a recent snowboarding video that I fell in love with.

I generally don't like computer music.. the main reason I hate the Postal Service. But every once in a while someone comes along that does it quite well.. for example The One AM Radio.. and Grandaddy as well.

I use this song as an "intermission" of sorts. This is a long mix, and its good to take a little break with something chill and funny. The monkey sounds from the "Polynesian Village" Optigan disc make you smile and add to the intermission effect, breakin the CD up a bit.

As long as we're back in the 80s for a moment, why not use some Tears for Fears? Another great song. You may notice this and the last song were also both ganked from the Donnie Darko soundtrack. Thats because its simply an amazing soundtrack. I almost put Duran Duran's Notorious on here, but I didn't think it fit right.

Ok, for the last time on this mix, I promise, here is another band that I never really liked, out of principal alone. Actually, I'm not really sure what that principal was in the first place. But it doesn't matter, because when I finally did listen to the shins (thanks, again, to the aforementioned person and her mixes) I absolutely fell in love. I can never get their songs out of my head, but that is really a great thing.

Yes, I am using this song again, just like I said I would. I can't help it.. its just such a great song and fits so well right here near the end of this mix. Its a really beautiful sounding song by an absolutely amazing band. Any good girl (or guy) should love this song.

I like the feel of this song at the end of a mix.. its contemplative and reflective.

When I hear this song I get a picture in my head.. the thought of riding in a car on a winter afternoon watching the scenery, tall snowy mountains, pass by in the distance. Its a good feeling, and a place I'd really like to be. I've been there, and I hope I can be there again.

This is absolutely one of my favorite Iron and Wine songs. Its a great song to end an awesome mix with. Its super long and every time you think its about to end it just keeps going. Like the last song, this is another contemplative and reflective song. Meant for spacing out, watching scenery while moving, watching scenery while staying still. The perfect time, the perfect mood, the perfect song for me to float into your head. It serves its purpose, it ends the CD, and it leaves you feeling good, relaxed, and happy.

You are the first I know of that also aren't very big on Arcade Fire, Bloc Party and Coldplay like myself. That's seriously strange, and I like you for that. I still haven't given Snow Patrol a real chance to get into my system though. Anyhow: +++++++++++ for you and this mix.
