Intended purely for trading/ room-cleaning-inspiration purposes, I actually ended up giving this tape to a cute guy at work last night (after he blurted out "DO YOU LIKE MUSIC?" - I thought it would be easier to show than to tell, so I shared this with him).

This tape is not meant to have hidden meanings, to be overly obscure, or overly obvious. It's just songs I've been enjoying lately mixed in with old favorites.

(and, for any Twin Peaks geeks- the title of the tape and the mix cover are both from Fire Walk With Me, where' "Let's Rock" is scrawled in lipstick on a car windshield)

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!
