7:58 pm - Kyle's Mix.



For a boy I like more than I should.  He asked me to make him a mix of the stuff I'd been listening to, and I gave it to him before we went to Homecoming. This are the songs I had on repeat while we spent time together, and songs I felt represented me well. He liked it. (:


current mood: peaceful

So, I'm making a mixtape just for fun, and I came up with the theme "Leaving For / California" but I don't have any indie rock/pop songs about leaving (places or something) that aren't depressing! D:

Any suggestions?

My favorite manager at work was having some problems with her daughter's (who's my age) "boyfriend" or maybe boyfriend or whatever. The guy is a complete asshole and Laura is the sweetest thing in the universe. I went through a toxic relationship too so I made a mix to help her see that she doesn't need him.

Track List:

Franz Ferdinand: You're The Reason I'm Leaving
Kaiser Chiefs: Everyday I Love You Less and Less
Tegan and Sara: Speak Slow
Franz Ferdinand: Walk Away
All-American Rejects: Move Along
Franz Ferdinand: You Could Have it so Much Better
Modest Mouse: Float On
The Magic Numbers: Love's a  Game
The Flaming Lips: All We Have is Now
Death Cab for Cutie: Someday You Will Be Loved
All American Rejects: Straitjacket Feeling
Jason Mraz: Details in the Fabric

I have a lot of repeating bands, but it was hard to give off the "you don't need him" vs the "we're broken up and i miss you" vibe. I didn't want to make her feel sad about losing him, I wanted her to feel empowered and realize she deserves better. I hope it came across in the mix

current mood: cheerful

My best-friend currently lives 45 minutes away,which makes seeing each other very minimal. Through and through though, he is still my best friend and I absolutely adore and love him. He's a junior in high school this year,but he's leaving for Massachusetts for his senior year( some school that is just for your senior year,but is just like college?) I really do love him,so much,and that fact that I'm once again losing someone before I'm ready is tearing me down bit by bit.
I'd really like songs for either:

"I can't believe you're leaving for Massachusetts right now,because I love you more than anything"


"I'm not ready to lose you"

here's a mixtape for you in turn:


"Lullaby" The Spill Canvas
"Lullaby" Jack Johnson
"Lullaby" The Dixie Chicks
"Lullaby" Billy Joel
"Lullaby" Regina Spektor
"Lullaby" Tom Waits
"Lullaby" Newton Faulkner
"Lullaby" Aimee Mann
"Lullaby" Alana Davis
"Lullaby" Matt Costa
"Lullaby" Katy Rose
"Lullaby" Archo
"Lullaby " Lunartheory
"Lullaby" Sia
"Lullaby" Paul Mounsey
"Lullaby" Dear Juliet
"Lullaby" Jason Webley
"Lullaby" Sifl and Olly
"Lullaby" Elemeno P

2:15 am - hopefully someone can help

Ideas for getting to the point of absolute disgust with guys who have been coming into (and inevitably out of) your life. I have yet to find the perfect songs to fit this mood of mine.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

10:59 pm - hello

hi people.

i just joined this community :)

i'm kind of new to this whole live journal thing but i mainly listen to indie music (am not mainstream musics biggest fan - to but it likely!) and i am always making mix tapes/playlists for my ipod :)

in the process of making a mix about when nothing seems to stay the same.... so far i have..

flux - bloc party
constants - umbrellas
i won't be happy again - bright eyes
another suitcase, another subway - lights over ashfield
always love - nada surf

waiting on the world to change - john mayer (ok so i know that john mayer is sort of mainstream ish but yeah i just love this song and he is not as bad as people like jordin sparks and miley cyrus and all that overproccsessed shit that loads of people seem to be loving at the moment... really don't understand it ! grr....)

rain drops - backseat goodbye
displaced - azure rays</b>

suggestions for songs? please? anyone?


current mood: blah

Second off, I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be making a weekly themed mini-mix tape on muxtape to share on my journal, and invite you guys to listen in.

some_thinker I am looking to make a mix about liking someone, and then realizing "what was i thinking?", "what did i ever see in this person", you know feeling disgusted and ashamed of eve having feelings towards this person. Or maybe you find out things about this person that make you change your mind completely.

help would be greatly appreciated!
