1. "Wish You Were Here", Pink Floyd.
2. "We Own the Sky", M83.
3. "Royals", Lorde.
4. "First Song for B", Devendra Banhart.
5. "Jane", Jefferson Starship (Wet Hot American Summer). 
6. "Balance", Future Islands.
7. "Wicked Game", James Vincent McMorrow (Chris Isaak cover).
8. "The Loco-Motion", Little Eva ('60s).
9. "Holocene", Bon Iver.
10. "Intro", The xx.

11. "Mind Sex", Dead Prez. (Hidden track- wooo!)

This was a fun little Music Monday activity. I remember when I was in school, I'd always make mix tapes (and later CDs) for my friends and such. The last time a guy gave me one (a few years back) it was quite prolific- more like a box set. Mixes truly are one of the most thoughtful gifts that come straight from the heart. I'm a major lyric lover because I think that words are powerful. Music takes it to another level.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
