Still better than this forum dying slowly every day

Okay, Liam! (Note well; I did not attain this girl through mixtapes. But she's going to be getting a lot of them )

1. Twerps - I Don't Mind
2. Broken Social Scene - Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Day)
3. Wilco - Heavy Metal Drummer
4. Black Kids - I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You
5. Architecture in Helsinki - Heart it Races
6. Modest Mouse - Float On
7. M83 - Midnight City
8. Destroyer - Chinatown
9. The National - Slow Show
10. Bon Iver - Blood Bank
11. Radiohead - All I Need
12. Arcade Fire - No Cars Go
13. Massive Attack - Exchange

It's pretty entry level. She has a playlist of about 60 songs that she listens to and that's it, but she has good taste. She loved Age of Adz, so it doesn't need to be entry level, but it is because the artists she listens to is pretty narrow.

Looks good!

I made a post-punk/80's alternative rock primer playlist for someone a couple of days ago. They liked it! (they already liked post-punk, but wanted to know what angle I was coming in at.) Maybe someone here'll like it.

1) New Order - "Age Of Consent"
2) Sonic Youth - "(I Got A) Catholic Block"
3) Silkworm - "Cotton Girl"
4) Joy Division - "Insight"
5) The Chameleons - "Swamp Thing"
6) The Cure - "A Strange Day"
7) Mission of Burma - "Academy Fight Song"
8) Minutemen - "Do You Want New Wave Or Do You Want The Truth?"
9) The Smiths - "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out"
10) The Comsat Angels - "Our Secret"

^ I have to admit, though I think There is a Light is overrated, it's on on of my shortlists.

Context; my girlfriend is in Paris for six months and I planned on making her ONE mix cd, but it has blown out into six mix cds, haha. Six different moods. Get Psyched, Happy/Calm, Calming/Relaxing, Sad, Sad/Happy(Melancholy),,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, -forgive me father for I have sinned, using oxford comma- and NervousEnergy(C).

I finished all the shortlists last night and just tonight may have finished the first mix cd, SAD. I have to give it a listen through first though. The idea behind this one is a playlist she can chuck on when she's feeling really sad. Not upset, but just that emotion when you're okay... you just feel down.

1. Joe Goddard - "All I Know"
2. Thundercat - "Heartbreaks + Setbacks"
3. Interpol - "NYC"
4. Julien Baker - "Sprained Ankle"
5. Something for Kate - "Monsters"
6. Sun Kil Moon - "Duk Koo Kim"
7. Pavement - "Here"
8. Radiohead - "Fake Plastic Trees"
9. Aimee Mann - "Wise Up"
10. Tom Waits - "Lonely"
11. Thom Yorke - "Truth Ray"
12. Justin Timberlake - "Blue Ocean Floor"
13. Miles Davis - "Blue in Green"

I've always wanted to pair Here and Fake Plastic Trees. They're the same song, musically, at least. I'm not convinced on Blue Ocean Floor... it fits the bill... but listening back it may not be *quite* as good as I remembered it being in 2013. And also I've used Blue in Green to finish a playlist before.

FUCK the transition from Truth Ray to Blue Ocean Floor is superb. Maybe I just won't overthink it and just keep it in.

I doubt it would make my top five from the album. Great song, but I was quite underwhelmed and disappointed when I finally heard it for the first time.

Depends on where you go. RYM has it listed as the 7th greatest single of all time. In that instance, I would call it overrated.

A couple of tweaks and I'm done with this one. Added Antler's Palace in between Fake Plastic Trees and Wise Up, and swapped out Blue in Green for Flaming Lips' The Impulse.

Now working on the ~calm~ playlist. My shortlist for it revealed I had two ideas; half were calmer songs by rock bands etc, the other half were actual ambient/relaxing songs. So I've tried to combine the two, starting with calm rock/indie rock, then slowly working its way into more ambient sounds. I've broken my rule by including more than one song by Eno (and with three Passengers songs it's more like six) but I like it. Still need to do a listen through - for example Slug works BEAUTIFULLY out of Nightlands but it strays from calm towards the end - but I like this. I've used Discreet Music to fall asleep so often it is by far my most played song on iTunes.

1. Nick Drake - Northern Sky
2. Nas - Stay
3. Bruce Springsteen - Meeting Across the River
4. Massive Attack - Be Thankful for What You've Got
5. Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
6. Nightlands - So Far So Long
7. Passengers - Slug
8. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - We No Who U R
9. Broken Social Scene - Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl
10. Pink Floyd - A Pillow of Winds
11. Kurt Vile - Too Hard
12. Tame Impala - Alter Ego
13. Passengers - Your Blue Room
14. Radiohead - Kid A
15. Aphex Twin - Flim
16. Brian Eno - Zawinul/Lava
17. Passengers - Beach Sequence
18. Jon Hopkins - Immunity
19. Brian Eno - Becalmed
20. Brian Eno - Discreet Music

Thumbs Up

I finally stepped into this thread. I've easily made hundreds of mixtapes/cd's over the years. I first started making tapes when I was teenager in the late 1980's. I had bought a decent stereo system with a dual cassette player. Then I added a cd player to it and really went to town. Eventually, by the early 1990's, I put tapes together for friends or girls I liked. I'd find out what band or songs they liked and then put in stuff that I liked. By 1995, I bought a nice Sony mini system which made making the tapes even easier. I made so many tapes that I killed my tape player. By then, cassette tapes were nearly extinct. I graduated to burning mix cd's. I'm actually down to my last blank cd. Do I buy more or retire from cd's and go digital?

Anyway, mixtapes can definitely be a personal statement. A statement about me or the person I've made the mix for.

Sure, I''d change things up, but usually I would start off with some uptempo stuff. I'd keep things high energy for a number of songs, slow it down in the middle, and then gradually speed things up towards a big finish at the end.

Putting together mixes is easily one of my favorite hobbies.

Thanks for reading this small glimpse of something personal from MrPryck.

Wow we have a similar story. I was that guy for all my friends too.

But I went digital years ago. Couldn't even tell you where my CD player is. Soundcloud (and probably others) is your friend.
