A Muxtape of My Life

Last week I celebrated my 26th birthday, and to commemorate the occasion, I decided to try and sum up life in a 12-song Muxtape. These are not my 12 favorite songs, and some are slightly embarrassing, but they all play a significant role in telling the story of my life. Stream it here.

8/7/82: The Story of My Life in 12 Songs
"Into the Great Wide Open," Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
"Hickory Wind," The Byrds
"Near Wild Heaven," R.E.M.
"Fast Car," Tracy Chapman
"In My Life," the Beatles
"Name," Goo Goo Dolls
"Lucky," Radiohead
"You Get What You Give," New Radicals
"Sunday," David Bowie
"The 15th," Fischerspooner
"Touch the Sky," Kanye West
"Today the Sun's On Us," Sophie Ellis-Bextor

This is a great mix.

Fast Car would make it on my Muxtape of My fact I may have to steal this idea from you.

If you are allowed 12 songs for 26 years of life, then I believe I am allowed 765 for mine. Those are nice choices though.

I'm glad we've gotten some positive responses to this one, and I suggest everyone try and make a similar mix. Glad people have fond memories of the New Radicals tune - I still think its a great song.
