Great Mixed Tape

Last month, friends of ours had a baby and I wanted to give them something that wasn't in a casserole dish. So, I made them a mixed tape! I felt like Noel on Felicity, except that I'm a 40 year old black lady and the Felicity character in this case is a cute couple in their mid-thirties who already have two offspring. And it is really a CD and not a tape. And it wasn't made in a fake university dorm room circa 1991. You see where I'm going with this, though, right?

Anyway, I highly recommend going the homemade route with a gift like this. Usually the recipients have been overwhelmed with a bunch of new gack that they feel pressured to use and are only too happy to have received something that didn't require fine motor skills to do up (you hear that onesies?!) Here are the songs:

  1. Father and Daughter - Paul Simon

  2. This Must Be the Place - Talking Heads

  3. Still Fighting It - Ben Folds

  4. X or Y - Loudon Wainright III

  5. Old Man - Neil Young

  6. You are the Best Thing - Ray LaMontagne

  7. Dreamer - Jenn Grant

  8. People Got a Lot of Nerve - Neko Case

  9. String Of Blinking Lights- Paper Moon

  10. Blindsided - Bon Iver
