My friend chose 5 songs by bands she'd never heard of, and 5 songs by bands she liked and asked me to put together something based around them. It's pretty... random. I dunno how I feel about some of it. I'm kinda picky about the flow, but only when I make mixes.

Lifetime- Turnpike Gates
Ben Folds Five- Army
Braid- I'm Afraid of Everything
Jets to Brazil- Lemon Yellow Black
Archers of Loaf- Web in Front
Pavement- Silence Kit
Neutral Milk Hotel- In The Aeroplane Over the Sea
Built to Spill- Randy Described Eternity
Cap'n Jazz- Little League
The Get Up Kids- Don't Hate Me
The Promise Ring- Is This Thing On?
Texas is the Reason- The Magic Bullet Theory
Sunny Day Real Estate- Seven
Jawbreaker- Boxcar
Wilco- Heavy Metal Drummer
Weezer- El Scorcho
Bright Eyes- Lua
Elliott Smith- Say Yes
Smashing Pumpkins- 1979
Jimmy Eat World- For Me This is Heaven
Kevin Devine- Brother's Blood

Mixtape #1: Are We In Love Yet?
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?docb0egmhtdnnyy

Iím not sure if youíll enjoy this as much as I do, or if this is really a good mix, but I trust my ears and your patience. Hereís the thing: this was supposed to be a love mix for whoever girl I wouldíve dated next. But hey, I figured, why give this to one girl whom Iíve never even met before when I can let the whole world enjoy it instead? So thatís exactly what I did. I wonít look forward to most of you checking this out, since I know yíall got tons of stuff to do, but Iíve put my heart in this. And the only reason itís posted here is maybe, just maybe, another person would love it like I do, or if I get lucky even two. Iím opening the possibility that someone might stumble upon this randomly, and for some reason click it, and enjoy it. And that might change his life, for the better. And that would be pretty awesome. I may not get credit for it, but shit, I just changed a life.

You might know most of the songs in the mix, but that doesnít stop it from being a damn good mix. The mix describes the finite ways you can fall in love, and the ways you cannot, the ways you can forgive the same dude and love again, or the ways you can move on and stay single or date again, whichever floats your boat. It looks cheesy on paper (or on tumblr if you insist) but itís actually a bit darker than I thought. So eh, Iíll let the music do the talking from here on (except when you realize there are notes on the download). I really hope you enjoy it. I mean I really do. Itís around thirty minutes long, long enough to make you feel something but short enough for you to enjoy and not bore you to death. And hey, if you do like it, tell a friend. It makes all the difference in the world.

Disclaimer: I apologize for the crappy album art. I just didnít want to ruin your iPOD in case you were an OC who must have album arts on every record they have.


haha there we go XD
Old quote and I have all those songs but I just wanted to comment on the nice use of This Love and how perfect this is for my personal situation.

Thanks homie.

Asked a girl to the Boat Dance. So I made her a mix CD asking her. I spelled out Boat for those who don't see it. I'm not saying its a good mix but it got the job done!

This was clever. I've always wanted to make a mix where the titles of the song tell a story or something.

Yeah, haha the songs I used were too predictable. Guilty.

Credit goes to all those great bands in the mix. All I did was arrange them in a way that they create some sort of cycle people can relate to. Thanks a lot though.

EDIT: When I heard This Love's EP, the first two songs were begging to be in a mix. Great EP.
