Mix Tape #19 - The Mystery At Lilac Inn

Back to randomness. A lot of favorites on this one. Whenever I hear the whiny guitar that opens "Titus & Strident Wet Nurse," my pupils dilate and I prepare to jump around like a complete spaz.

Anyone who knows me who's reading this probably can't picture that, but, oh, when you're not around? I totally do that. I'm a pretty avid air guitar player when no one's watching.

That Ennio Morricone song comes from this absolutely eye-poppingly fun movie:

And the title for this mix comes from "Nancy Drew" which is clever as fuck and also sends me into fits of pogoing. Special Olympics style. If you live downstairs, I'm sorry.
