Dearest College-freshman Eric,
What lies ahead for you on this mix is a gift from 5 years in the future. It represents a few highlights of your personal soundtrack from particular moments in time during your 5-year-stint in college. If that makes any sense.

For you all: a peek into the audiobiography of Eric. In pseudo no-related-order.

Track 1 from Promise of Love
Length: 00:04:27
Year: 2003
Track Description:
On your personal soundtrack, you will find this at the front end of a great many of your mixes. This is your under-the-weather song for overcast-sky days with slight showers. Remember to follow this one up with something funky, because you don't always have to talk to clouds on cloudy days.

Track 3 from Float
Length: 00:05:01
Year: 2000
Track Description:
4th floor of the dorms, south wing, Steve's room. After drinking all night you will barely escape legal incident by feigning a makeout session with two girls to avoid a door-call from the dorm narcs and a police officer escort.

Note: Avoid losing touch with Steve. He' a good guy.

Track 5 from Moon Safari
Length: 00:04:18
Year: 1998
Track Description:
This will only take you a month or two to uncover, but I don't want you to waste any time. I don't want to spoil the fun / suprise, but this song quickly becomes track one on the ultimate makeout mixtape that you will be compiling over the next five years.

PLAYA' PLAYA'.

Length: 00:05:12
Year: 2004
Track Description:
On the flipside, some of those makeout sessions will lead to an amazing amount of heartbreak and personal anguish on your end of the bargain. It's going to be shitty, but trust your gut, the scales will eventually tip in the right direction.

Okay, I kind of understated it, it's going to be really shitty. For a long time. You'll stumble over this track while digging through your old collection and find it amazingly magnetic, albeit depressing as fuck.

Track 12 from Elf-Titled
Length: 00:03:55
Year: 2006
Track Description:
But on the upside, when you are a junior, some nerdy-ass guys will band together. Armed with software specifically written to decode NES cartridge audio tracks they will flawlessly recreate the soundtracks from three of your favourite games of all time. In one track. With rock guitar. Oh yes.

Track 2 from Madvillainy
Length: 00:01:57
Year: 2004
Track Description:
The college crew, all but tired of party-hoping, the warm pre-summer saturday night ends at home, early. Spent with good friends on the couch nested in the front lawn, drinking shitty beer and listening to Madvillain, you'll cement your belief that the people are much more important than the party.

Track 3 from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars
Length: 00:04:38
Year: 1972
Track Description:
Windows down, driving to Portland, she turned out to be a better Creative-writing peer-reviewer than she was a girlfriend but damn if that wasn't a boatload of smiles and post-teen excitement. When reviewing her paper, be sure to point out that Sri Lanka is often referred to as 'The Pearl of the Indian Ocean' -- it'll net you big points.

Track 4 from XO
Length: 00:03:13
Year: 1998
Track Description:
It won't take you long to realize that if you'd rather listen to an album on headphones than spend any time with the girl you're involved with, it's probably good to get out at that point. Pay attention to the switchup at 1:37 -- it's so wonderfully unexpected.

Track Description:
Throughout all the girl-strife, someday in the future, you'll reconnect with a girl who captures your heart in some strange fashion. She'll curl up next to you and take cat naps to Cat Power. Does it get any better? Not as far as your future self can see.
