We're now on to our 15th theme in our ongoing mixtape contest. We've had themes from the 80s to special fun time to island adventures. We continue on with our next theme from Week 14's winner, Pie 'oh' Pah:

I was going say Awesome Mix vol. 2 or make your best Michael Bay soundtrack (power ballads, meaningful acoustic numbers, hip hop fun and arena rock), but when I went back through the weeks before I started playing, I noticed something missing. When I was a kid we used to make these a lot, and the number one reason was trying to convey to the person you loved how you saw them when you couldn't express it with words. So I think that will be my theme. "Describe the Person You Love Most".

If you're not with someone or the person you're with isn't it (really hope not.. if so, leave now!), then describe the one you dream about or long for. The songs don't need to be literal. I don't think verbally, and often for me it comes down a particular note that I associate with a trait or event. And obviously this one is personal, so while notes on choices would be appreciated, they're absolutely not necessary. The best mixtapes are like the best jokes. You shouldn't have to explain them. I'm hoping this one is fun.


So there we go. Songs to describe the one you love or the one you wish you could love. Happy, sad, silly, serious, disturbing, it's all up to you to describe that special someone. Just how does that special someone make you feel?

As always the same rules apply. And just to remind, you do need to include links or a playlist or something. Just listing songs isn't going to be enough. You have until Tuesday, September 9 at noon to get your submissions in. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
