The Friday Mixtape!

I’ve had this one brewing for a bit. I recall putting a similar mix together in the mid ’90s, trying to work within the confines of a 60 minute memorex, Side A has an almost claustrophobic feel to it. It also breaks one of the cardinal rules of mixtapeology in that there are two tracks by the same artist. I’ll cop to the foul, but retort with the fact that both songs together are vital to the feel. Enjoy this one late at night. Side B is a complete 180 from Side A, meant to accompany a Saturday afternoon drive.

Side A: How to Win Friends and Influence People

Side B: Obscurity Knocks

Trashcan Sinatras – Obscurity Knocks from Cake (1990)
The Sundays – Here’s Where the Story Ends from Reading, Writing and Arithmetic (1990)
