I Made You A Mixtape

{images a la pinterest}

Hand-holding was awkward, being dropped off at the movie theater for your date – more awkward, but when he made you a mix tape – that was love. Because I live a soundtracked life (more on that here), and because I am a product of the 80s, every Wednesday I’ll make you a mix tape. Who says chivalry is dead? You’re welcome.

Cue girl power music …

Suddenly I See, KT Tunstall

A Thousand Miles, Vanessa Carlton

So Young, The Corrs

Supermodel, Clueless Soundtrack

Express Yourself, Madonna

Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!), Blu Cantrell

Maneater, Nelly Furtado

I Want You To Want Me (Cover), Letters to Cleo

Dancing Alone, Ashlee Simpson

Pocketful of Sunshine, Natasha Bedingfield (DISCLAIMER: I actually think that this is the most annoying song ever, second only to Chumbawamba’s Tubthumping … but post “Easy A“, this song cracks me up, and I secretly can’t get enough.)

And because any girl power jam session is surely not complete without Madonna or Gaga, check out this amazingly choreographed, styled, and directed video done as a graduating film thesis project at The Los Angeles Film School. C’est Magnifique.

    Sad that an entire generation will not even know the brilliance of a mix tape. But Clueless will live on forever.
