Mixed Tape Mondays

Music is the food for our souls, or something like that.  Shakespeare am I correct?

Anyhoo, I love mixing tapes (cd's actually, but tapes sound much better) When I was little I would always have mixed tapes in my walkman, with a big strip of masking tape splashed across the cassette with black marker stating the obvious which was always - Meg's Mixed Tape - followed with a drawing of a flower. It was my thing, sad I know, but it just doesn't seem as cool now that we have mp3's, cd players and all that jazz...

If I were to make a mixed tape now it would have the following spun onto its record, to show off my mood for the moment. I would want to listen to it just as I did as a little one - jeans on, long plait in my hair, sitting downstairs with my cat thinking I was a dreamer.  Hurrah to mixed tapes!

2. Cat Power - He War
3. She & Him - Don't Look Back

What would yours be? right now? for this moment, the songs to describe your mood, strangely enough each song title is something that has crossed my mind during the past couple of days - with the exception of "The Only Living Boy in New York".  x
