HOW TO GET YOUR CHILDHOOD CRUSH (A TRACK LIST)

I had a crush on this boy from work for roughly five years and then I made him this mixed cd for his birthday (in 2014) and we started dating!! Because my mixes are perfect!! Also the relationship only lasted three months so take from that what you will.
  1. 1.
    (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To by Weezer
    Pretty straightforward start. I've liked you for a long time, bud, MAKE A MOVE. Also he is the person referred to as "girl" in this situation.
  2. 2.
    Girl I Got a Thing by Ian Axel
    Pre- A Great Big World. Saw Ian open for Ingrid Michaelson the second time I saw her and 😍. Anyway my love interest is also "girl" in this song.
  3. 3.
    Sonsick by San Fermin
    Here's where you can tell that I'd just attended Firefly (music festival in Delaware). San Fermin was there and they were AMAZING. This is like "come on, I want a relationship!!" (But not a son sorry)
  4. 4.
    Skeleton by The Front Bottoms
    No romantic undertones here, I just love TFB and needed him to hear them. He makes fun of Brian's voice relentlessly to this day 😩
  5. 5.
    World News by Local Natives
    Again just saw them at firefly and it was πŸ’―. Anyway not sure why I chose this specific track? Kinda weird. His critique: "you turn off your phone in a different tone" doesn't make any sense.
  6. 6.
    Lightning Bolt by Jake Bugg
    Okay guess what I saw him at firefly too. But this was a real hit!! He went out and downloaded Jake's albums ☺️
  7. 7.
    Migraine by twenty one pilots
    Necessary. This album got me through 2013 and 2014. Also I always sing "but I know we've made it this far, KIM" so it's totally about me
  8. 8.
    Favorite Song by Chance the Rapper
    I want everyone to love Chance!! Also it's kind of like a "look, dude, I listen to different types of music!" (even though he already knew about my Kanye obsession)
  9. 9.
    Step by Vampire Weekend
    Weird choice of song. Idk.
  10. 10.
    The One That Got Away by The Civil Wars
    In hindsight, maybe a poor choice for a potential mate's mix? But I think I'd already given him their first album, so
  11. 11.
    Last Nite by The Strokes
    Also a weird choice bc the strokes are synonymous with my ex in my mind? But I love them so much.
  12. 12.
    IV. Sweatpants by Childish Gambino
    He had only listened to Camp so this was me trying to get him into new Bino! I later bought him a physical copy of because the Internet #wifeymaterial
  13. 13.
    I Wanna Get Better by Bleachers
    Jam of the summer! Also saw Jack at firefly
  14. 14.
    Amsterdam by Imagine Dragons
    Regret this choice too bc I don't really like ID anymore but GUESS WHAT I saw them at firefly and they were so fun
  15. 15.
    My Girls by Animal Collective
    "Hey look I'm so cool and hip even though this song came out in 2009"
  16. 16.
    No Children by The Mountain Goats
    Idk why I keep giving boys this song? I have three "exes" who identify me with No Children. But. I guess that's cool
  17. 17.
    C'mon (feat. Nate Reuss) by Panic! At the Disco
    Brendon and Nate were V BIG in my life at this time but I still stand behind this song. It's a jam.
  18. 18.
    Well anyway maybe I'll have to make a list about the mix I made him for his birthday the year after this bc I STILL listen to it in my car and it's great.

    And now you know how to steal a man's heart. Make sure you go through the playlist in iTunes and check all the transitions bc that is KEY πŸ”‘
