Did it ever occur to you that the music you’re listening to now you’ll hear again in 30 years on some oldies station in the car with your kid and you’ll remember listening to your favorite band on your old computer in your old bedroom wondering how one band could change your life like this one has and then you’ll finally understand why your parents only listened to the oldies when you were a kid.
White Apple / Blind Pilot In shadow, in dark In cold wind, open up your heart ‘Cause time brushes your face And one loved them, every new shape One loved them for what could not get left behind Or washed away
Some were seasons, some just days I’m bringing nothing with me I mean to save This faint sweetness, this wick of light This white apple, full of bites
A white apple, full of what has slipped away from me Full of flesh, sweet as memory Full of hope, grown from a fallen tree Full of a life, I can’t just let myself believe
So if I haunt you, if I do If my shadow leans up on you too No good intentions or ways I talk I’ll just leave a light lit for you to walk I’ll leave a light lit for you to walk
Expo ‘86 / Death Cab for Cutie Sometimes it seems that I don’t have the skills to recollect The twists and turns of plot that turned us from lovers to friends I’m thinking I should take that volume back up off the shelf And crack it’s weary spine and read to help remind myself
I’m in the process of making the previous mix into a YouTube playlist for those who missed the original posting time and for those who perhaps just want an easier way to listen to it again ;)
Also, I’m thinking about doing a personalized mix giveaway at some point in the future (this would mean something along the lines of the winner choosing a theme or idea or something and then I’d interpret that and turn it into a mix - with album artwork included, see the last album artwork I made: here.) Any takers?
