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.

Today I thought I’d bring you a fun sampling of my Shazam finds.  What is Shazam, you ask?  It’s this crazy app on my iphone that allows the program to listen to a short clip of a song, and then it spits out the name, artist, album, etc.  I have become so obsessive about identifying songs, that I will silence people in restaurants, department stores, during movies, and of course – my own car.  (By the way, random but true, Marshalls plays great music!)  Back to Shazam – it’s basically a life saver when you have the song name on the tip of your tongue.  Also, please don’t make fun of my embarrassing shazam discoveries.

If I Ever Fall In Love, Shai

  1. Looooove that Mr Big song 🙂 reminds me of wearing oversized tees and leggings in the 90’s

  2. The Ice Is Getting Thinner was also on Gossip Girl for Chuck & Blair. You subconscious wants more Gossip Girl.
