Lest you think Aaron was a big snarly Goth dude, the tape also included Prince, Dramarama and my favorite Barenaked Ladies (still the Greatest Marketing Stroke of Genius Ever, Band Name Division) song which is sooooo on the other side of the spectrum. "If I Had A Million Dollars" is from their first album, Gordon.
Aaron introduced me to many cool and wonderful people when I moved and one of those people was Lewis who I wound up sharing a house with. Lewis never made me a tape but there were always a few that he'd compiled lying aroung including one called "Killing and Dying Part 1." Side 1 Song 1 was "Psycho Killer" by the Talking Heads.
I'd loved the Talking Heads since junior high and in high school "Life During Wartime" was on my very first tape, made for me by my friend Melanie.
This is threatening to get long so I'll end it here but I'm definitely going to revisit this topic. What have you been introduced to via a mix tape that you love? Have a great day!
