Inspired: Mixed CD's

22:30

Hello my sweet-peas!

As you may have realised, today's post is about mixed CD's. 'Mixed Tapes' would have been the term used in the past, but times have changed and Compact Discs are the new tapes- though tapes are pretty snazzy.

My amazing friend (hello Sera!) created me a mixed CD (wow I keep wanting to say mixed tape) named 'Be Happy'. It surely has done the title justice! Such happy songs :)

She was inspired by this image:

OMG THIS IS AMAZING
IF YOU WANT ME TO LOVE YOU, MAKE ME A MIX CD, YEAH?
omg

(Is it a bit weird that while I am typing this I am listening to San Cisco and the reason I want to keep saying mixed tape is because of this song that just came on shuffle- Beach. "I'll make you a mixed tape of all the songs that you hate" Any ways- great song, great band)

In return, I thought it would be a nice little gift back by giving her a mix CD.

I didn't want to give her the same thing back, because I mean seriously- eug - so unoriginal. No, I am kidding haha- I just wanted to give her something different.

So after 5 or 6 long hours of a close selection of music, following a strict 'mood'- I created the fantabulous

Honestly- I am pretty proud of my work (not that it will ever be as great as Sera's!!).

So being a pretty proud creator last night- I of course thought of my blog and the little posts it contains and took a couple or a lot of snaps!

Here you go:







If you were unable to read my awful handwriting, the track list typed, especially for you:

  1. So good at being in trouble - Unknown Mortal Orchestra
  2. Kiss the Breeze - Sticky Fingers
  3. Fall Creek Boys Choir - James Blake and Bon Iver
  4. Shiver - Lucy Rose
  5. Crazy-Nôze Remix - Ornette
  6. Blood Bank - Bon Iver
  7. Milk - Sea Oleena
  8. I never learnt to share - James Blake
  9. Endless Summer- The Jezabels 
  10. Troubled Waters - Sucré
  11. Paint - The Paper Kites
  12. From Roses - Fences
  13. Beach - San Cisco
  14. Stars - My Little Pony
  15. Candles - Daughter
  16. Flowers in your hair - The Lumineers
  17. Eddy's Song - Sticky Fingers
  18. Orkley - Swimming

So- check out all these amazing songs! I was actually going to add so much more, but the disc I was burning it onto did not have enough space which is a shame! But I was going to add amazing artists like Yuna, The Narrative and Gabrielle Aplin.

Have a safe weekend and remember to relax (maybe by listening to these songs?)
