Love is a Mixed Tape

For Valentine’s Day this year, I decided to try my hand at compiling a mixed tape (er…CD) for my sweetheart. After much deliberation and downloading (legally, thankyouverymuch), I produced what some would consider the greatest love mix ever created. And by some, I mean the recipient, and that’s exactly what I was going for. And that, my friends, is the story of how “The Greatest Love Mix That Ever Was” was born. It’s not cheesy, it’s relevant, and it’s perfect for my mister.

The playlist goes something like this:

  1. Jesus, Etc. – Wilco
  2. Crazy Love – Van Morrison
  3. These Arms of Mine – Otis Redding
  4. Say Hey (I Love You) – Michael Franti & Spearhead
  5. Detlef Schrempf – Band of Horses
  6. This Year’s Love – David Gray
  7. Home – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
  8. Swept Away – The Avett Brothers
  9. Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
  10. In My Life – The Beatles
  11. We Have All the Time in the World – Louis Armstrong
  12. Anyone Else But You – Michael Cera & Ellen Page
  13. Angel – Dave Matthews Band
  14. Stand By Me – Ben E. King
  15. Hold You in My Arms – Ray LaMontagne
  16. If Love Was a Train – Amy LaVere

For those of you with equally good taste in music, copies available upon request.

    I’d request it, but I’m pretty sure I have all of these in some shape or form. Great list.
