Making a Mix Tape (Well... CD)
« on: 05/ 17/ 2010, 07:48:06 PM »
So I'm making a mix tape for this girl I really like, and yeah I know its super cheesy but I really want to do it because she's that kind of girl. I know she'll say she likes it no matter what but I wan't her to remember the songs that are on it. I don't know why but I feel like its really important. So I've come to you all to see if you could Help me at all. Throw out anything thats ever worked for you or something you think would be awesome. Or if you are a girl a song that you really like or think is romantic or something.

So here's what I have so far:
Almost Here - The Academy Is...
Small | Large

Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die - Four Year Strong
Small | Large

You Had Me at Hello - A Day to Remember
Small | Large

Soco Amaretto Lime - Brand New
Small | Large

Moshi Moshi - Brand New
Small | Large

She Makes Dirty Words Sound Pretty - Dance Gavin Dance/Pierce the Vail
Small | Large

Adieu - Enter Shikari
Small | Large

Relative Ease - Write This Down
Small | Large

The Space Between - Valencia
Small | Large

Tonight We Rise - Kid Liberty (couldn't find a video for this one.)

(didn't want to take up too much space with video imbeds)


Also if you think something should be removed let me know.

In the end though I understand that it would be more special if I picked the songs myself but I'm just stuck right now as to what to put on it. Any help would be appreciated.

I usually let instrumentals talk for me and i would usually accompany the songs with how i felt/how it made me feel in written form. The mood that i would usually make my mix tapes would be a landscape/somber airy feeling, dunno thats how ive always though, when i think of love i usually think of music w/out words.

Don't be afraid to listen to it through dozens of times to see what works and doesn't. It always amazes me how long they take.

I am definitely doing this! I really want it to be something she remembers even if we don't end up staying together forever (which is fairly likely due to the fact that we're both only 18). I don't want it to be something she listens to once then throws it to the side and never listens to it again.

Well, there are the good mixtapes and the sentimental ones. Both serve their own purpose.

One makes people move and the other moves people.

Or embarrasses the ever-living shit out of you years later when you're digging through a box of old stuff and find the damn thing.

That's totally not personal experience talking or anything.

 I figured my obscene amounts of individual songs from random artists would come in handy one day. Honestly, this song jumped straight into my head after listening to the first 3 on your list. I've got a few more floating around, but I can't remember the names... curse this folder and it's 3300 unsorted songs.

~edit~

I'm yanking your chain, mang.

But an industrial mixtape would be interesting. Hmmmmm. I'll put my resources to it.

In seriousness, this song is absolutely goddamn perfect. Even better if you sing it like a lullabye.
