On a whim, I offered to make a friend a mix CD. I have an overall theme. I know some of the songs I want on there... and then I run into questions.
See, I haven't made many for friends before. In fact, I think I've only made one other one, and frankly, I had these same questions then:
1. How do I balance between songs I love and songs I don't know if the other person will necessarily like?
2. My tastes are a little, um, all over the place. If I have stuff from really disparate genres, is that OK?
I guess that's pretty much the extent of my concerns. Silly questions, perhaps. I admit to a tendency toward over-analysis of stupid things.
Now playing: The Gaslight Anthem - Here's Looking at You, Kid
