Moving Is The Worst! #MixTapeMonday

Sorry for the delay in #MixTapeMonday! I think we just spaced out for a couple of weeks there. Tape #5 is based on the song “Two Stories,” which is a song about the struggle and pain of trying to find home.

Why Can’t I Fall Asleep? #MixTapeMonday

Why Can’t I Fall Asleep? #MixTapeMonday

Cease to Breathe is a song about sleep, and as it turns out there are a lot of songs about sleep. More than just sleeping, it’s about a brief moment of panic during the moment of falling asleep in which one might wonder if they’ll wake up again, and if so, will everything be the same? The Eames Era: Go To Sleep Radiohead: Exit Music (For A Film) Johnny Cash: Hurt The Soggy Bottom Boys: I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow The Silent Comedy: Gasoline The Treacherous French: Cease to Breathe The Dodos: Sleep The Head and The Heart: Ghosts Stars: I Died So I Could Haunt You

Love Song Memories #MixTapeMonday

Love Song Memories #MixTapeMonday

Song is one of our favorites, and is kind of the inspiration for this #MixTapeMonday thing. It’s a song about how looking back at memories: the songs, the bands, the concerts, and yes, the mix tapes, are definitive in how we perceive our relationships. At its soul, “Song” is a love song about being loved so wholly and completely that someone would bare their soul to you in the form of a tape. So, this mix tape is for all of you, even if you don’t even like that band any more. Stream below on Spotify, or find it on iTunes or YouTube. The song list, for you non Spotify users, is below.
