Mixed Tape to Selena from Ben

When Ben (my husband) and I first started hanging out he tried to win my heart by giving me two cds.  He gave me his band’s (Young Agent Jones) recent cd and a mixed cd.  It worked.  Also this cd introduced me to The Shins, which is now one of my favorite bands.  I’m sure my best friend Nikki got so sick of hearing these cds during our 30 minute commute to and from the W (Mississippi University for Women).

My First Mixed Cd from Ben

  2. Alkaline Trio- “Cooking Wine”

  6. Hefner- “The Hymn for Cigarettes”
  7. Bishop Allen- “Eve of Destruction”

  10. Beulah- “If We Can Land a Man on the Moon then surely I can win your Heart”
  11. Phantom Planet- “By the Bed”
  12. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion- “Fuck Shit Up”
  13. Sonic Youth- “Bull in the Heather”
  14. The Breeders- “Little Fury”
  15. The Postal Service- “Such Great Heights” (This song, actually their entire album defined that summer for me.)
