Love Is A Mix Tape

I stumbled upon a Facebook group quite some time ago, through a friend's event, and have since been inspired to make, and introduced to, collections of music - in the form of the old fashioned mix tape. Of course, this is a burnt CD nowadays, but a similar effect.

The group, love is a mix tape has the tagline 'Make a mixtape, send a mixtape, get a mixtape', and the brains behind it proposes a theme for a mixtape swap, collects participants, urging "Doer Daniels" only. You are then provided with a recipient, and set to mix your collection of songs. You send to the address provided, most likely to another land, and then receive an equalled poured over collection to the same theme. Brilliant!

So this is the mix I put together for the V Day Swap, in February this year. Built around the Jeff Buckley number, a bit of unrequited/love lost mix.....

3. Sundirtwater, The Waifs
4. If I Were You, Kasey Chambers
5. You Were Meant For Me, Jewel
6. Wise Men Say, Anika Moa
7. Slow Dancing In A Burning Room, John Mayer
8. I Know We Could Be So Happy Baby (If We Wanted To Be), Jeff Buckley

10. Accidental Babies, Damien Rice
11. Learning To Let Go, Max Sharam
12. Can’t Let Go, Mia Dyson (Like A Version cover)
13. Ten Days, Missy Higgins
14. Don’t Miss You At All, Norah Jones
15. Is My Baby Yours? Sarah Blasko
