Three things:

1) I sort of made this a story tape, taking us from unrequieted love, to losing your lover, to sadness in retrospect.
2) I'm not so good with sad-sad songs, so these are ones you can mostly listen to no matter what mood you're in - they just sort of have a melancholy air about them.
3) This is a blind tape, as I don't have headphones or speakers. I imagine it sounds pretty good, though.

Track 7 from The Smiths
Length: 00:03:20
Year: 1984
Track Description:
"Somewhere Only We Know" was the first of a few "Can't we work it out?" songs, or, depending on how you look at them, "I wish you were still around so we could work it out" songs. "Still Ill" is a "I don't know if we can keep doing this because it feels so wrong to me" song. So you know... they're all mixed together.

Track 4 from A Rush Of Blood To The Head
Length: 00:05:09
Year: 2002
Track Description:
I could almost put "Solitude" by Billie Holiday in this song's place, but I opted to go for putting the other song I wanted by her on here. I used to love this song so much, but it'd freak me out if I listened to it at night because of the lyric "Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me, I want to rush to the start." I was like 13 at the time... but still.

The namesake for this mix... "Lady sing the songs so blue... little wet tears on my baby's shoulder... I've walked the streets for so long, ain't nothin' right, ain't nothin' wrong." Also, a good introductory song, so to speak, for Lady Day herself who is next on the mix.

TEAM 97 -- Third Place
Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!
