23 About Me | Daily Prompt: Mix Tape Masterpiece

You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.

I actually have done this at least three times.

When I did this the first time, I thought that introductions online and in person could only say so much since there’s so little time. A good number of my friends love music so I compiled songs for them and burned those onto a CD/DVD. I personalized each one according to the friend I was doing it for—it was more for them than for me.

But, since this would be my introduction through songs, here is my playlist:

  1. (Everybody’s Free) Wear SunscreenBaz Luhrman
  2. 40 Acres – Caedmon’s Call
  3. Alapaap – 6cyclemind
  4. Another BelieverRufus Wainright

  6. Fun, Fun, Fun – Pharell Williams
  7. Good TimeOwl City featuring Carly Rae Jepsen
  8. Have a Nice Day – Stereophonics
  9. Here’s to Never Growing Up – Avril Lavigne
  10. HoudiniFoster the People
  11. If You Get Scared – D’Sound
  12. Island in the Sun – Weezer
  13. Lucky Me – Batchelor Girl
  14. Mountain Wind – True Faith
  15. Say – John Mayer
  16. Summer Parade – Depapepe
  17. Testing 1, 2, 3Bare Naked Ladies
  18. The Animal Song – Savage Garden
  19. Typical – Mutemath
