I made you a Mixtape to show you how far we are in this Relationship...

So, at this point, I KNOW you all know my obsession with music. Can't get enough of it, looove finding new music, love jamming in the car/shower/anywhere in general to it, can't live without it... and so on & so forth. I love it so much that I want to share my love for it, in some small way, by making CD's of it for those that I love & adore. I especially like making CD's for people who seem to appreciate the music that I "share" with them as much as I do. If they know it or not, I put a LOT of thought & time into making each & every CD I make. I literally think of the recipient, go through my music (CD by CD, yep, I have yet to store all of my music on to my computer, seems too daunting of a task at this point. So, I actually sit at my PC & load CD after CD, grabbing different songs off of each & adding it to a play list that I am personalizing for said recipient) & really try to choose songs that I think that they might possibly love. Some CD's can take me up to 2 hours to create. Sounds like I am crazy? Like at that point when I am making a CD, that I don't have any form of a life? Well, you're probably correct on both accounts, but I actually LOVE doing it! I get to listen to some of my favorite music & be creative in my own little way (what? I know I didn't actually create the songs themselves, but putting them together in my own little mix is fun & satisfying to mua). Each one is filled with sweet music (in my humble opinion) & a little Laura Love from me. If I were to make a custom CD right at this very second, here is what would be on it...

1. "Kandi" by One Eskimo

2. "Can you find me?" by The Summer Set

3. "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri

4. "Sea of Love" by Cat Power

5. "Addicted to Love (Robert Palmer cover)" by Florence & the Machine

6. "Dimestore Diamond" by Gossip

7. "Kid's" by Sleigh Bells

8. "Clementine" by Sarah Jaffe

9. "Twisted" by Katie Melua

10. "Love the way you Lie" by Eminem ft. Rihanna

11. "Soldier of Love" by Sade

12. "Send you on your way" by Eastmountainsouth

13. "Summer Rain" by Belinda Carlisle (that's right, from the 80's)

14. "Electric Twist" by A Fine Frenzy

15. "Anything but the Truth" by Jack Johnson

16. "This Conversation" by The Submarines

17. "Who am I to say" by Hope

18. "Always on my mind (Willie Nelson cover)" by Iron & Wine

19. "Closer" by Kings of Leon

20. "Friend" by Brandi Carlile

Most of these songs are at the bottom of this blog on my Playlist. Which is my own version of a Mixed CD for myself, I always pull it up to listen to on shuffle whenever I am on my computer. Chiggity check 'em out if ya want, I will be enjoying them either way. Cheer's to Music...

I'm pretty sure I am not on your cd list. But if you ever get bored and want to create one for me...I'D LOVE IT! I get to enjoy a few of your mix CDs from Natelli and I think they are great!
