A Mix Tape for My Readers

I tend to get stuck on the same music over and over again. Since I'm living a frugal lifestyle, purchasing new music is out for me and I don't tend to enjoy pirating it. 
However, there is a great way to experience new music that has been around for decades and will never go out of style. The Mix Tape. 

Mix Tapes are a collection of songs put together on a Tape, CD or Playlist and gifted from one person to another. They are a great way to learn new music. 

One of my friends and I have traded several mix CD's back and forth and it has opened me up to new (to me) music that I now really enjoy. 

If you are finding your old music stale, email a bunch of your friends and ask them to make you a mix of what they are listening to now, and then reciprocate by putting some of your old favorites together for them. 

With that in mind, here is the mix tape I would make for my readers. These are some of my favorite songs. Feel free to leave your mix tape for me in the comments!

All links are to the Youtube, some are not music videos but just something that used the song, some are live performances so sound quality varies.  

14. Calamine - Trampoline (You need to select the song and hit play)

A big thanks to Jacob York for reminding me how awesome mix tapes are this morning and encouraging me to blog about them.

You know there are online mixtape sites, which I can't remember the names of at the moment.

I'll get back to you.
