Monday Mixtape #02 – like the chorus to the verse

Monday Mixtape #02 – like the chorus to the verse

This mix doesn’t have a theme or a story, as such, but it’s a mix of frustration. It just kind of works, from the hate to the drugs to the love to the haircuts. I like to listen to it when I’m in a bad mood and I’m stuck on slow-moving public transport.

Track 01
“Glass Smash” – The View

I was in a bad place, sent on a goose chase
was running on the long blue mile of sweet disgrace
I’m taking this time to say sorry

Track 02
“Hate to Say I Told You So” – The Hives

gonna get through your head
what the mystery man said
because I’m gonna

Track 03
“Semi-Charmed Life” – Third Eye Blind

and I wish I could get back there
someplace, back there
smiling in the pictures you would take
doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break

Track 04
“Hey Jealousy” – Gin Blossoms

it might not be that bad
you were the best I’d ever had
if I hadn’t blown the whole thing years ago
I might not be alone

Track 05
“I Know What I Am” – Band of Skulls

gasoline, saccharine
I got no reason for the state I’m in

Track 06
“My Own Worst Enemy” – Stereophonics

I’d just turned 26, and she was 23
she wore a crucifix, but never preached at me

Track 07
“Plastic Loveless Letter” – Magic Dirt

there’s not enough hours in my day
to tell you that you’re getting in the way
there’s not enough words in my book
to explain how I got over you

Track 08
“Cut Your Hair” – Pavement

I’m just a boy with a new haircut
and it’s a pretty nice haircut

Track 09
“Little Sister” – Codeine Velvet Club

they’ll keep selling it
cast your spell
and it’s not that easy to find

Track 10
“Getting Wise” – Yves Klein Blue

but I’m gonna teach you different this time
I’m awful clever
as you most certainly know

Track 11
“The Girl from the BBC” – Official Secrets Act

and when summer comes
we’ll go to Paris or Rome
and when summer comes
I will not be alone
