Let’s Make a Mixtape. Share Your Favorite Song Suggestions.

It’s November, and around here that means…

It’s time to make the annual mixtapes! Since 2004, I’ve compiled two mixtapes as presents for my mum and sis. More like mix cd’s rather, which yes – I know are also becoming obsolete – but that doesn’t make the actual songlisting any less fun.

This is where you come in.

I need YOUR HELP collecting awesome songs that fit the theme for the mixtapes.

The FIRST is a Phenomenal Woman Mix – all female artists, songs you can dance to, but some ballads are great too.

The SECOND is a Cafe Mix – any artist, more mellow vibes, songs you can play while relaxing at home.

Why should you help?

Why not?! Music is the ultimate mood lifter and who couldn’t use a boost of finding new tunes to jam to and new artists to fall in love with. Go down the same rabbit holes as me sifting through song suggestions in the comments. Watch YouTube videos until you forget how to blink. Play the same song over and over until your significant other knocks on the bathroom door and asks “What, exactly, are you doing in there?”

BONUS: TWO lucky commenters will receive copies of the cds after the playlist is compiled! Free music for you! Woohoo!

So, share your song suggestions in the comments below. I can’t wait to listen. I always find new favorites and couldn’t make these awesome compilations without you. I’ll share the final picks and announce the winners in January.

Here’s some ideas from last year to get you started:

Phenomenal Woman Mix

Fallingwater ~ Maggie Rogers

Great One ~ Jessie Reyez

Shadow on the Wall ~ Ruby Amanfu

Yours ~ Ella Henderson

Cafe Mix

Two Blue Eyes ~ Tall Heights

Famous ~ Serena Ryder

Slow Burn ~ Kacey Musgraves

Beyond ~ Leon Bridges

What are your recommendations? I’m all ears!
Also, any suggestions on what platform to adapt
these mixes to once cds do go out?
Thanks, friends! Happy listening! Rock on!
