I Made You A Mixtape

{images a la pinterest}

Hand-holding was awkward, being dropped off at the movie theater for your date – more awkward, but when he made you a mix tape – that was love. Because I live a soundtracked life (more on that here), and because I am a product of the 80s, every Wednesday I’ll make you a mix tape. Who says chivalry is dead? You’re welcome.

Earlier this week I turn on the radio (somewhat rare for me now — admitted Pandora addict, right here), and I hear a baby rapper singing “I’m a 90’s baby, clearly.”

90s baby!  Rappers are 90s babies.  Yikes. And that baby rapper?  His name is Diggy Simmons – son of Rev Run.  Woah, when did I get old?

Sooo, in an attempt to make myself hip again – the current rap playlist:

Do It Like You, Diggy Simmons

Make Me Proud, Drake feat. Nicki Minaj

Dance, Big Sean

Drank In My Cup, Kirko Bangz

Lotus Flower Bomb, Wale feat. Miguel

Rack City, Tyga

Another Round, Fat Joe feat. Chris Brown

Pretty Little Heart, Robin Thicke feat. Little Wayne

This week I’m getting a little funky with the mixtape and adding a video element (yeah, 21st century!)

Ob-sessed with this cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”, by Walk Off the Earth.  The entire band shares and plays one guitar throughout the song.  So cool.

I saw Lady Gaga live last year and I was blown away.  She’s an incredibly talented performer + also, she’s completely nuts.  My kind of show.

I actually got the chance to watch Radiohead perform live this week in Miami and it was awesome! Thom Yorke performs like a maniac, throwing his whole body into it.  … makes me think my dancing is not so bad after all.

Incubus puts on one of my favorite shows ever.  And Brandon Boyd rarely wears clothing.

Every time I type the word “FASHION”, I hear David Bowie.  Am I the only one?

On that note, this week’s musical Wednesday is an homage, and mini portfolio to the FASHION ( … turn to the left) that’s inspiring me right now.

{If you miss my mixtapes, I’ll have a shiny new one for you next week, but until then – just press play.}

Today I thought I’d bring you a fun sampling of my Shazam finds.  What is Shazam, you ask?  It’s this crazy app on my iphone that allows the program to listen to a short clip of a song, and then it spits out the name, artist, album, etc.  I have become so obsessive about identifying songs, that I will silence people in restaurants, department stores, during movies, and of course – my own car.  (By the way, random but true, Marshalls plays great music!)  Back to Shazam – it’s basically a life saver when you have the song name on the tip of your tongue.  Also, please don’t make fun of my embarrassing shazam discoveries.

If I Ever Fall In Love, Shai

Conventional Wisdom, Built to Spill

To Be With You, Mr. Big

The Ice Is Getting Thinner, Death Cab for Cutie

Listen to your Heart, Roxette

Come Back to Bed, John Mayer

Be Be Your Love, Rachael Yamagata

Sparks, Coldplay

Sure Thing, Miguel

No More I Love Yous, Annie Lennix

Solsbury Hill, Peter Gabriel

Life’s Been Good, Joe Walsh
