I have two friends who are also really good friends with each other. They go to the same school, so they see each other all the time, but I feel guilty because I'm bad at keeping in contact with them. I'm going to visit Florida over winter break and I wanted to tell them via letter with these mix CDs, but the way things worked out, I wound up just telling them. I made the actual playlists before Thanksgiving break, thus the names "Autumn Hands/Autumn Lungs." One of my friends plays cello/piano and the other plays mostly sax, so that's why I used hands/lungs, so they'd have some music in their life during finals when they probably wouldn't have as much time to play. There was supposed to be some artsy cover and whatever, but whatever. Also, each mix is supposed to have a combination of artists they know and others I think they might like, so that it's not all completely foreign to them or something they've heard countless times. I also tried to keep that autumn feel with most of the songs I picked. This probably all sounds really odd, but whatever.

So I made this playlist for my best friend after she broke up with her boyfriend of more than 2 years :/ She was pretty messed up after it.
I don't think she gets the deeper meaning, but she liked it :)

1- Trains by Porcupine Tree
2- War Paint by The Dangerous Summer
3- Dark Blue by Jacks Mannequin
4- Singing With The King by Go Radio
5- Always Be by Jimmy Eat World
6- Little Razorblade by The Pink Spiders
7- The Night Will Go As Follows by The Spill Canvas
8- Something Good Can Work by Two Door Cinema Club
9- Hurricane by Something Corporate
10- The Cure by Non-Prophets
11- The Girl by City and Color
12- Hammers And Strings (A Lullaby) by Jacks Mannequin

The songs follow the grieving process. Trains is the loss, war paint facing it, dark blue is coping, singing with the king acceptance and realising life is not worth the pain, then the songs move into the cheerier side. Always be is a beautiful song, I'll always be there for her, Little Razorblade is purely to cheer her up and then the spill canvas/something good can work are both about moving on and finding someone else. The Cure> The Girl are contextually the new relationship being better than her last and Hammers and strings is simply a perfect way to end it :)

Browsing, I only see hypothetical mix tapes in this forum so, in this thread, post mix tapes you've given or received.

This year, me and my girlfriend broke up. I'm transferring to another university and didn't feel like it would work out and, since she's endlessly into mix tapes, i made one to say goodbye. The tracklist to my mixtape went as follows:

1. Cassino - Lolita
2. Finding Windemere - Another Summer Night
3. Jack's Mannequin - Rescued
4. Dave Melillo - For the Sake of Remembering
5. New Found Glory - 47
6. Semisonic - Closing Time
7. Northstar - Two Zero Two
8. Lydia - This is Twice Now
9. Blink 182 - First Date
10. Further Seems Forever - On Legendary
11. Lost Prophets - Goodnight Tonight
12. Radiohead - There There
13. New Found Glory - Don't You Forget About Me
14. Green Day - Good Riddance (unique, right?)
15. Number One Fan - There Went the World
16. Firescape - Sleeping
17. The Receiving End of Sirens - The Afterglow
I think I'd commit suicide if my ex gave me this...
