Mix Tape #23 - Roadtrip

I recently took a three hour road trip and, me being me, I packed 26 CDs. I am such a dork. Of course I only listened to three (Scrawl, KMD, and the excellent Holding a Dream comp). When I got home and went to put them away, I thought it might be fun to take a song from each and throw them together for a mix. And it turned out ok!

It's mostly the usual suspects, but there's a couple of surprises. That Marsha Hunt track is pretty killer. Oh look. Someone just uploaded a really cool Marsha Hunt video. Let's watch it.

That was nice.

I think the most important lesson contained within this mix is that when you have the Barbara Walters speech impediment, you really shouldn't add "Cry Me a River" to your oeuvre.

Anyway. Here's the tracklist:
