Yo, Keef, no decent songs in the last 20 years?

Moods for Moderns

Back before the Net and the digital music revolution, a friend of mine used to make me “Mix Tapes”. Years after one of those tapes itself was in the wind, Shawn Colvin’s hauntingly luminous cover of Your Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go kept playing in my head.

For the basics of making a mix tape, or now burning a mix CD, see John Cusack in the film High Fidelity.

This friend is now sending me some very noteworthy MP3 files:

Squeeze Inn and Santa Fe by Kimberly M’carver on Cross The Danger Line

Badass by Kacy Crowley on Tramps Like Us

Sunny Day by Deana Carter on The Story of My Life

Happy Trails.
