The Turtleberry Mix Tape

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mix Tape.”

So… I immediately got excited about today’s daily post. I mean, if you have known me for ten minutes you know that I love music. Get to know me a little longer and you will find out that I love making mix tapes. Well, I have upgraded to playlists, except when burning discs for my truck and I stay true to the definition.

I have a ton of mix tapes (discs) and playlists that I have created over the years. Some that I have lost that I wish I could recreate. Some that have not changed one bit over the years.

I try my best to embrace new music, but it is hard because there is just so much old music that is outstanding. I have to force myself to stop listening to it.

So, imagine my surprise when I found it hard to create a mix tape that describes my life.

I mean I have songs that I love, tons of them. It is just a little harder to find the ones that actually speak to your life.

It took me a minute to get going and then I had to cut myself off, in order to stay true to the mix tape and not turn this into a playlist of epic proportions.

Here are the songs, in no special order (because I’m not trying to dive that deep into myself this morning).

  • Waiting for the End – Linkin Park
  • Bring Me to Life – Evanescence
  • Fly Away – Lenny Kravitz
  • Almost – Tamia
  • Don’t Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin
  • Killing Me Softly With His Song – Roberta Flack
  • Dance to the Music – Sly & the Family Stone
  • Still – Tamia
  • Fantasy – Earth, Wind, & Fire
  • Every Teardrop is a Waterfall – Coldplay
  • Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars
  • A Capella (Something’s Missing) – Brandy
  • More Than Words – Extreme
  • What If – Coldplay
  • Last First Kiss – Tamia
  • Smile – Michael Jackson
  • Be The One – Christen B
  • What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

Of course there are more, and of course I will probably make a playlist based off this blog post, but I wanted to keep this to what would fit on a mix tape or the CDs that I burn.

So… what would your mix tape look and sound like?

One thought on “The Turtleberry Mix Tape

  1. Good songs! But while I love Roberta’s Killing Me Softly, Al B Sure’s version is so cheesy that it must be loved. I had the original cassette, and I bought it on iTunes, and yes, I still listen to it….occasionally.
