Mixtape Sunday: May Day Mix

We are at May for the MayDay mix. A bunch of New Wave mostly early. It took me forever to find a reasonably priced CD of Hasi Fantazee. If there was an inspiration for this month I don’t remember it, I think it was mostly I came across some old CDs.

Mixtape Sunday: April

April is a my favorite month as I was born in it. The inspiration for it was my birthday and music that I really love. It is a mix of old New Wave, some 90‘s dance, and more recent. You can tell I was still on an Elizaveta and Oh Land kick as they are on the first two mixtapes too. This remains one that I listen to a lot.

Mixtape Sunday – March

Mixtape Sunday the March edition is brought to you by St. Patricks day. I decided to do a Celtic mix for the month. Most of the CDs are in storage and not on the new laptop. The names of couple of bands and a few songs are going to be sketchy. I knew this month was gong to be challenging as some songs do not have lyrics and there are a couple of independent releases. I’ll fill them in when I find the CDs, but most of it is there. Don’t ask me why I picked the Ides of March for the title.
