so to counter my slightly love lacking valentines post from earlier, i will upload this gorgeous mix of mine for this years valentines that is just full of love. these are really the only mixes where i dig deeper and go for lyrical content of the songs, and as usual the placement of the songs is key. but that's just me being a nerdy mix maker. maybe that's why i don't have a girlfriend to give theses mixes too.
booo hoooo i know i know woe is me
seriously though, check this mix out. valentines 2010. it's a (newer) mix of songs that actually make me think about that special spark and make me feel like the people who wrote these songs maybe, possibly, still believe in love. probably not though. because let us be real folks. love is a lie and valentine's day is a complete sham put on by flower and chocolate companies. the whole holiday is designed to make people who are (or at least think they are) "in love" shell out cash just to try and prove it and then it makes people who are are alone just feel worse about not having anyone to love.
but i'm used to this. i've known these facts for a while. and i find comfort in these ugly truths.
anyways, i hope you enjoyed these mixes stretching back to when i was a naive little freshman in high school, to now, where i type before you as the jaded and pessimistic college freshman that you've grown to love due to his incredible taste in music. really, i'm just working on being the next generation of these douchers.
these songs are good though, this mix is really kind of a list of my favorite songs from 09 (as well as some from 2010, duh) but i really will be posting some year end 09 list shit soon. better late than never right? considering it's already past valentine's day anyways.
this mix is a lot more light hearted though, in the songs and in my general attitude towards it, because i can't take myself too seriously. because then i really would be a douche bag and i'd hate to parade that around for people to read on the internet. wait... is that the definition of a blog? either way...
