My friend, KaRyn, recently lost all her music. To help out, I re-uploaded some mixes I made a while ago and sent them to her. Anyway, thought I would share them with the rest of you too. You may already have the first one from an old post.

Chariot - Page France
Just Like Honey - The Jesus and Mary Chain
Suspicious Minds - Pete Yorn
Tonight I Have to Leave It - The Shout Out Louds
Uh - Fijiya & Miyagi
I Wish - Stevie Wonder
AM Slow Golden Hit - Hotel Lights
Sunshine - Matt Costa
The Thanks I Get - Wilco
Heartbeats - Jose Gonzales

Ice Cream Man - Tom Waits
7 Stars - Apples in Stereo
Trapeze Swinger - Iron & Wine
Nightswimming - REM
Inside & Out - Feist
Ooh La La - The Faces

Mix #2

Made for Tamara when she was trying to decide between moving to LA or NYC (she picked NYC). So the songs are all on that theme, I included the rationale for each because some aren't so obvious.

Portland Is Leaving - Rocky Votolato - Cause you’re leaving Portland :(
Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac - You can go any way you want
Marching Bands of Manhattan - Death Cab for Cutie
California - Phantom Planet
Brooklyn Phone Call - All Girl Summer Fun Band
Ooh La La - Goldfrapp - People call LA la, la land
Snow Like This - The Softies - It snows in NYC
California Dreamin’ - The Mamas and the Papas
Around the Way Girl - LL Cool J - What’s more NYC than a Fendi bag, a bad attitude, and bamboo earrings?
Sunshine - Matt Costa - Lots of this in LA
How To Be Dead - Snow Patrol - Ignore the title, but again, there’s snow in NYC
Touch the Sky - Kanye West - West, get it? Plus it’s just a great song.
Brooklyn Stars - Matt Pond PA
My California Love - Ryan Adams
The Only Living Boy in New York - Simon & Garfunkel
Do It Again - Nada Surf - They surf in LA, plus I love the chorus about the weight being a gift so we can learn how much we can lift
No Sleep Till Brooklyn - Beastie Boys - OK, this might be more NYC than LL
Going to California - Led Zeppelin
New York, New York - Ryan Adams - This guy’s like you, can’t decide between the two, see his earlier song
L.A. - Elliott Smith
City Love - John Mayer
All the Pretty Girls Go to the City - Spoon - Either one you choose, this is true
Ooh Child - The Five Stairsteps - Just another great song to help you relax

I will definitely be raiding these mixes for songs I don't have but NEED. I need them about as much as you NEED a lot of peep toe mary-janes. :) Okay, I want.
