My Mix Tape Masterpiece – Daily Prompt

English: An audio cassette tape.

Years ago when I had my first car and my first custom car stereo system, I did mix a tape and we played it until it got that “window sound” –which means it was time to throw it out the window. 😉

Many years have passed since then, and life has changed me. So here are the songs I would include in my Mix Tape so you can begin to understand who I now am.

1. Casting Crowns Praise you in this storm

When times get tough, I put this on and scream/sing. Well, more screaming than singing.

2. Mozart – Marriage of Figaro

My cousin Michael introduced me to “Wolfie”. Michael has since left this planet, and I inherited his Mozart cds. I look forward to the day I see him again.

3. James Taylor – Fire and Rain

The good, the bad, and the in between: Life

4. Carole King – Smackwater Jack

Down-home reality.

5. Muse – Uprising

Every true American has a little Rebellion in their heart–Rebellion is what founded our country. My son turned me on to this song.

6. Dropkick Murphys I’m Shipping Up to Boston

Rowdy Irish guys. Another scream song.

7. Tara Nevins – Stars Fell On Alabama

I am a sucker for some fiddle. This song was also covered by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday.And Jimmy Buffet

8. Keith GreenThe Easter Song

The Gospel in 4 minutes. I also wish I could hit those high notes like Keith did.

9. Matt Redman Better is One Day

I love me some Matt Redman. And I’ve been known to play this song 10 times in a row.

10. Lincoln Brewster – Salvation is Here


Well that’s enough for now…. My Tape Mix Masterpiece for the Daily Prompt.

(As far as I know, all the links to YouTube work if you want to try them out. I would recommend Carole King.)

    1. I was introduced to that song by that movie, the Departed. That movie is what I call a “wild ride movie” –my favorite kind. I like action/adventure/suspense…I don’t normally go for “Chick Flicks”. 🙂
