The Mix Tape

Yes, times have changed, the mix tape seems like something an archeologist would dig up under a million layers of earth. But my husband is somewhat of a Renaissance man and a great lover of music.

We met on April Fool's Day on a blind date four years ago and fell instantly in love, something neither of us were looking for exactly. The first week we knew each other he made me a 'mix' cd, proposed and I moved that order. We got married two weeks to the day after we met. And the rest, as they say, is history. And I wouldn't have done anything differently.

Our four year anniversary is coming up and on the way into work, I listened to the cd he made me...and love it still. He's my lobster.

I listed the tracks below for your listening pleasure.

Elefant - Now That I Miss Her

Kaiser Chiefs - Modern Way

Iron and Wine - Such Great Heights

*This is one of my favs on the cd...and this IS my fav version of the song*

Pale - Where is Heaven
This was my very first introduction to Pale and they've become great friends of mine via my husband. I just love those boys, and their music! Click the link below to listen to some of their songs, "Where Is Heaven" included. Calvin, Robb, Steven and Travis = Pale.

Here are some of their videos. Pale Rocks!

The Raveonettes - Beat City

Southern Backtones - They'll Never Come Between Our Love
*This is another band that I instantly fell in love with, and of which my husband is friends with. Hank is an awesome guy, insanely talented and hilariously funny...and it doesn't hurt that he's mucho handsome!
