Fall 2010 Mix

I'm obsessed with making seasonal mixed CD's for my friends, and what better season than the Fall? This playlist is a mix of old and new, pop-y and melancholy, over-the-top and severely underrated. I hope you enjoy it!

Also, you should definitely check out the video for track #1 (also currently my ringtone). It's pretty rad (although perhaps not suitable for work?). Apparently it was a little too much for YouTube b/c they pulled it from their site. I find that ridiculous considering the crap on there, but whatevs!

1. HEALTH - USA Boys
2. Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
3. Shontelle - Impossible

Interesting video. I saw HEALTH open for NIN, back in 2008. I am impressed by this song, b/c they were not good live. Live, HEALTH just sounds like a bunch of random noises. But, I like this song. Thanks for sharing the playlist!

I know there's a chance you'll just delete this and that's the risk I take. However, I came across your blog by hunting out people who like mix cds. I host a group on yahoo where we make mix cds for each other and swap them. (We're a group of about 45 people, worldwide). Some of the swaps are easy (bands that start with The) and others are trickier (musical instrument scavenger hunt). If this interests you at all please email me at mixcdsforall@yahoo.ca and I'll send you some further info.
