Leap Years

This month’s (or rather, last month’s – I am a bit late with my submission this time…) Monthly Mixtape theme was related to “Years”. Each song should be from a different year, with bonus points if these are consecutive years. There could be any variations on the theme as wanted, which made it pretty difficult for me; it offered a lot of possibilities. In the end, I picked a bunch of songs, from 2009 down until 1985 (I would have picked my birth year, but I felt 25 was a good number of songs), which were important to me in some way. I have a memory attached to every single one of these songs, sadly it would take way too long to write about it all. Besides, it wouldn’t be too interesting..
So I’ll leave you with this very lovely and slightly too dark sunday mix.
