The Modern Mix-Tape … Totally 80s-inspired!

If you’re looking for a little retro activity in your modern life, try the ol’ school (albeit, with new school equipment!) mix-tape/CD!

I have never been a stranger to music…especially that which is inspired by that beloved era!  So, I recently started grouping different tracks on good ol’ iTunes and cranking out some serious mixes (Soul Sounds, Passion Plays, Calming Classical)…and, now, Electronic Drive!

After viewing the sleek, sexy, soon-to-be-cult-classic, Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, I felt compelled to revert to my music-compiling days….totally 80s-inspired-like!

Now, gone (I think) are the days of dual cassette players and cassette tapes.  But, with summer around the corner, what better “I love you, man” gift is better than a CD chock full of choice hits?

“Nightcall” – Kavinsky (feat. Lovefoxxx)

“Under Your Spell” – Desire

“A Real Hero” – College (feat. Electric Youth)

“Hide Me” – The Golden Filter

“Show Me the Way” – Allure (feat. Jes)

For more info, see: Drive, Kavinsky, Desire, College, The Golden Filter, Jes

Grab a chilled beverage and enjoy the ride! Happy listening!

  1. DRIVE is an incredible movie. It’s too bad that it didn’t get the PR and box office numbers it should have. Again, a great movie with an amazing tribute to 1980s pop music.

  2. I believe it to be a cult flick soon enough…but hopefully not before I buy my scorpion bomber jacket!!
