I mean, sure, you can make compilations. But on a cassette tape? I mean, can you even GET cassette tapes anymore?
There's just something highly romantic and nostalgic about the idea of a mix tape, especially coming from, say, a member of the opposite sex.
If some guy wanted a quick way to earn a bunch of points with me, he could buy this and fill it with a thoughtful mix of songs:
But, I had an idea, driving home last night. It's Valentine's Day, which means very little to me, but I thought - what if we collectively made a "mix tape" of sorts? As kind of a love letter to each other. We're all connected in some way or another (if nothing else, by this blog. If you're reading it, then BAM, you're part of the ICTH family. Whee!)
I'm going to need you to help me with this. I want to make 2 playlists. So if you could be so kind as to comment with (1) your favorite song of ALL TIME and (2) your favorite love song, that would be superb.
Depending on how many people answer, I might have to edit and choose and what not, but I will purchase them (if I don't already own them) and curate the equivalent of two mix tapes. Depending on what the most legal option is, I'll either make them available for download in a future blog post OR through Dropbox OR I might be persuaded to make/mail some hard copies to those who are interested. (If you have any thoughts on this part of it, feel free to add that to your comment, also.)
I'll be taking song submissions up through one week from today, if you need some time to think about it.
I think this has the potential to be fun? If not for you, then for me. I like collecting new music.
