If I were to make a mix-tape for Tia, someone who deserves a tape for something they did, it would have to include:
Something by Cher because, well she rocks just like Tia does.
Wind beneath my wings by Bette Midler because I remember crying through that movie with her. Tia, not Bette
You’re my best friend by Queen just in case she forgot
Grade 9 by the Barenaked Ladies because well if we were making a mix tape it would have been when we were in grade 9
Don’t you forget about me by Simple Minds because every time I hear that song I think about her. And again, hey grade 9
Now admit it you thought it was a different kind of tape I was talking about, didn’t you?
Oh and for those youngins that do not know what a mix tape is, I’ll explain: You see back before the dawn of the internet we had cassette players. We would take our cassette player put it next to Casey’s Top 40 and hit ‘record’ as soon as the song came on we were waiting hours for. We would then spend hours trying to get the songs that declared our love for some one or help a friend through a breakup.
And you thought surfing the internet was a waste of time? Try sitting through 4 hours of the American Top 40 waiting for Journey’s Open Arms.
Crap. I just re-read the rules to this week’s topic and seem to have done it wrong. I should have read past the Tape for someone deserved a mix tape and realized that she also wrote 2000-2013. Well, first I have never once done one of these themes correctly so Jen won’t be surprised.
And second, there is no way in hell I am rewriting this post.
Happy Tuesday everyone.
