Summer ’04 Mix

August 19, 2005 at 7:00 PM | Mixes, Site/Personal | 1 Comment

This was the first of the “Summer” mix CD series. I originally made this back in the summer of 2003 for music to drive to on my way back to Wichita, but accidentally mislabled the disc with my Sharpie. I didn’t even realize that I had written down the wrong year until Amanda pointed it out to me one day at her house. I guess what had happened was I had just finished up with finals and was so excited for summer break that I fancied it a new era. So I subconciously added one to the year, much like people do when New Year’s rolls around. Every summer, I put together a new Summer ‘x mix CD and send it to Amanda. It usually doesn’t showcase that summer’s latest and greatest music by any means, and ironically often features music that might even be considered “so last year.” Or even further back.

  1. [...] A mix intended for a single person is a different story. That shit is personal. I believe it’s more difficult. Every summer, I put together a mix CD for Amanda back in Wichita… I always view that one as sort of like writing a letter – it has purpose. Most other times, one-person mixes usually takes a combination that paints a story with songs that evoke certain thoughts, certain feelings at the intended times. [...]
