MY MIXTAPE

Your oh-so-specific title doesn’t really give much to work with, but I decided it could be interpreted as, “Make me a mixtape to be my personal anthem/soundtrack”. I tried to select songs which, together, form a theoretical depiction of “you” as as seen by a complete stranger.

Dearest “MY MIXTAPE”, you appear to be individualistic (emphasis on “MY!”), passionate (ALL CAPS!), and taken to flights of whimsy (in that you expect someone to be able to fill a request like ‘MY MIXTAPE’).

Here is “YOUR MIXTAPE”:
