Just shipped this one out to one of my closest friends. I started working on it a month ago (I had to look for bands I'd never heard of because our music tastes clash a bit), and it looks nothing like the draft from December, but I'm happy with how it turned out. My only qualm is that I couldn't find songs that really fit my theme, and I didn't want to be too forward with my feelings. In hindsight, I wish I used a couple of the ones that I could really relate to.

I've literally grown up with this kid. He means the world to me. I wanted to sum up our highs and lows, and also get across the stuff that I'm not good at verbalizing. Hopefully he likes it :3

All the notes in time make a melody.

Chapter 1.
1. A Melody, the Memory - Mae
2. Back To Love - Amely
3. Detroit Was Built On Secrets - Search the City
4. I Don't Need A Soul - Relient K
5. Would It Kill You? - Hellogoodbye

Chapter 2.
6. Tool Sheds and Hot Tubs - Straylight Run
7. Polygraph, Right Now - The Spill Canvas
8. Our Bodies Sing - Edison Glass
9. 12 Fingers - Young the Giant

Chapter 3.
10. Don't Die Digging - The Graduate
11. I, The Remover - Vanna
12. Words - Between the Trees
13. I Locked My Time Capsule - Fireworks
14. Dust Storm - The Spill Canvas

Chapter 4.
15. Coffee and Cigarettes - Jimmy Eat World
16. Pull Me In - The Graduate
17. We're So Far Away - Mae
18. The Mixed Tape - Jack's Mannequin

I made this for myself yesterday. Primarily because the instrumentations of the songs kinda suit my mood (I didn't really pay attention to the lyrics) and the current cloudy cold weather. Secondly because I needed some "normal" music back in my life, after exclusively listening to the "Pitch Perfect Soundtrack" (which is absolutly fantastic) for the last two weeks

" I Suspect I Moved To The Cloudiest City Of Bavaria And I Am In Desperate Need Of Vitamin D "

1. Lost In My Mind - The Head And The Heart
2. Coney Island - Good Old War
3. Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
4. Girl From The North Country - Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash...
5. Starlet - Matt Pond
6. Houses - Great Northern
7. King Of Spain - The Tallest Man On Earth
8. I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous - Frank Turner
9. The Adventure - Angels And Airwaves
10. Can't Go Home - Good Old War
11. Brooklyn - Wakey!Wakey!
12. Sweet Disposition - The Tamper Trap
13. To Take You Home - Frank Turner
14. If You Were Here - Cary Brothers
15. Today - Joshua Radin
16. Little Numbers - BOY
17. All Will Be Well - The Gabe Dixon Band
18. Here Comes A Regular - The Replacements

Congratulations on everything! I'm just wondering, though. Why use "Wasting Away?" It seems pretty negative compared to the message behind the mix. It's still a great song/mix, though!

I actually don't think the song is negative. For me, "Wasting Away" is about watching yourself almost give up on everything, and then deciding that that's not how it's going to be. In particular, the lyrics "Don't tell me it's too hard, you were never there from the start. I'm not about to give this up." and "And I never wished for anything more than to find what I've been looking for. And I swore to myself I wouldn't lie to myself, how could I let this happen?"

The guy I was dating lived in New Jersey, and was very unhappy with my decision to go back to school, and that I accepted the offer to manage a friend's band. He really wanted me to move there, and spent months making me feel incredibly guilty for trying to pursue the dreams I've had since WAY before he was in the picture. He was selfish, jealous, and attempted to be very controlling. So the song is just really personal to me in that respect. A cautious tale, and a spot of hope.

I never thought of it like that, and with the explanation, it works really well. I'm glad things are working out for you.
