"He took the days for pageant, and became as mad as rabbits"

These past few weeks have been sort of awesome really. I might even say legen - wait for it - dary! (The How I Met Your Mother craze is back and kicking :))

Late nights and pancakes and inside jokes. Yup, this is a summer that I might actually remember.

Before high-school, I used to love making mixtapes for friends. A bunch of my favorite songs, a CD recorder (it was way before I ever heard of CD writers) and some hours to spare and ta-daa! A brand new CD with all my favorites for my favorite person then.

(How old am I that I can also still remember making actual tapes? )

So here's a mixtape for all of you. These are some of the songs that have stuck to me lately, be it their lyrics or their melody or the moment they played at.

Download and enjoy, my darlings :)

Mixtape

Out of Heartache, A Mixtape
01 Mika - We Are Golden
We are not what you think we are / We are golden, we are golden.

02 Cobra Starship - Living In The Sky With Diamonds
And that girl loves danger / But she don't know when to stop.

03 Jonas Brothers - Hey Baby
The lines that you feeding will leave you alone.

04 Kings of Convenience - I'd Rather Dance with You
The music's too loud and the noise from the crowd / Increases the chance of misinterpretation / So let your hips do the talking

05 Panic At The Disco - Mad As Rabbits
But there ain't no sunshine in his song / we must reinvent love

06 The Killers - Sam's Town (Abbey Road Version)
But I know that I can make it / As long as somebody takes me home / Every now and then

07 Jason Mraz - Plane
And supposedly you can crawl right through me / Taste these teeth please / And undress me from the sweaters better hurry

08 The Teenagers - French Kiss
Your eyes don’t lie / Perfect timing for a / French Kiss / On your soft lips

09 Green Day - Viva La Gloria!
She smashed her knuckles into winter/ As autumn's wind fades into black / She is the saint of all the sinners

10 Eels - P.S. You Rock My World
And I was thinking about how everyone was dying / And maybe it is time to live

11 Empires - Valmont
So damn tragic, so fantastic.

12 Travis - Get Up
I need a little love and a hand to hold / Somewhere to hold the frustration / I need a little cause for celebration

13 Cage The Elephant - Back Against The Wall
I said you got me where you want me again / And I can’t turn away

14 Beck - Where It's At
Members only hyponotizers / Move through the room like ambulance drivers / Shine your shoes with your microphone blues

15 Simian Mobile Disco - Cruel Intentions (ft. Beth Ditto)

16 Kasabian - Fire
I'm going, you tell me, I feel it, I say it / I'm heading back into the tunnel for my soul to burn

17 Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To
When I woke up tonight / I said I'm gonna make somebody love me / I know that it's you / You’re Lucky, lucky, you're so lucky

18 Doves - There Goes The Fear
Out of heartache /Along with fear / There goes the fear again / There goes the fear

19 Kaiser Chiefs - Never Miss A Beat
Best bit of the day / Now that's living / Why don't you run away? Are you kidding?

20 The Last Shadow Puppets - Separate And Ever Deadly
I'll pretend / I didn't hear / Can't you see / I'm a ghost / In the wrong coat

21 The New Pornographers - The Laws Have Changed
Awakened to cheers after years on the faultline / We are shocked to be here in the face of the meantime.

22 James Morrison - Once When I Was Little
We could build a rocket / Fly to the moon / Leave Tuesday morning / And be back for noon

23 Glitterati - Keep Me Up All Night
You can keep me up all night / Yeah, even though you're out of sight

24 The Hush Sound - The Boys Are Too Refined
And if I'm given the chance to be a doll in his hands / I will be sure we shake the mountains while we dance

25 Patrick Wolf - The Magic Position
Right past the fabulous mess we're in / It's gonna be a beautiful day

26 The Stills - Let's roll
Don't be afraid / To be afraid here with me

27 The Strokes - Last Nite
Oh, baby, I feel so down / See, it turns me off / When I feel left out

28 The Wombats - Moving to New York
I've just had the craziest week / Like a party bag of lies, booze and then deceit

29 Fall Out Boy - Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown
Tempest in a teacup / Get unique / Peroxide princes shine like shark teeth

30 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue
With the birds I’ll share, this lonely view

31 Razorlight - Golden Touch
Give them a taste but not too much

32 Bon Iver - Skinny Love
I tell my love to wreck it all / Cut out all the ropes and let me fall


What songs have stuck with you this summer and why? Which song is your favorite right now? How about lyrics?

Hope you enjoy all these songs as much as I've been enjoying them these past few weeks.
CD cover made by me. And yes that is a photo of the Panic! At the Disco boys. I have no shame for the love I hold for them, they're too adorable :))

Masha said...

I absolutely adore this mix! We seem to have very similar tastes in music, and so I've discovered some new artists I can hunt for songs by. Awesome. :)Also, your hair looks amazing, love the colour. x

Lynn said...

hey lades,

it's my 1st time commenting and i feel i must cos the mix is now on my downloads. Thank you for this! love the cover art too.

I've been a fan for sometime and adore your style (inward & outward).

there's a quote that reminds me of you too by another music man:

"Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. ~John Mayer~

xo,
Lynn

unfortunately, your mixtape is no longer available. tocmai am petrecut ultima jumatate de ora cautand 23 de melodii din 32 si de-abia astept sa le ascult maine, cand voi pleca intr-o mini-excursie cu mama si cu sora mea. muzica va fi singura mea raza de speranta. so... thank you :D
(oh, I also spent the last few days scrolling through your blog archive. I love your blog)
