    when it comes to love, it didn’t get any better than the eighties.

    so, while i am en route to the wintery wonderland of nyc as we speak, i am kicking off the countdown to cupid’s holiday with a stellar eighties and indie infused mixtape to lighten your monday, charm your honey…and take you waaay back to the dreamy days of blane mcdonnagh, lloyd dobler and jake ryan. sigh.


    l-o-v-e mixtape ’10

    friday i’m in love
    the cure

    digital love
    daft punk

    there she goes
    the la’s

    the cranberries

    fade into you
    mazzy star

    melt with you
    modern english

    northern sky
    nick drake


    to be alone with you
    sufjan stevens

    yeah yeah yeahs

    there is a light that never goes out
    the smiths

    smokey robinson

    i will follow you into the dark
    death cab for cutie


    into your arms
    the lemonheads

    dashboard confessional

    the promise
    when in rome

    by your side

    only you

      jj – of course, bc you have awesome music taste. that is most likely going to be my wedding song. it was released when we first started dating & carries so much meaning for rob+me. i worship sade and am thrilled about her new album! we must discuss.
      julia – music is the gift that keeps on giving…i’d be flattered if you wanted to share music 🙂
      cafe fashionista – so happy to have found your blog too. i love that we share the same fondness for the mixtape 🙂

      Ohmigosh I’m so glad I found your blog – I love this post! Just yesterday I did a piece about mix tapes on Cafe Fashionista, and I referenced Rob Sheffield throughout. I am incapable of resisting mix tapes – despite the fact that they came before my time!! 🙂
