Welcome Back to Mix Tape Monday, the blog series that celebrates the lost art of mix-tape making. Today is Part II of our “Crush Mix” series, the Unrequited Crush!
Now, there are two types of Unrequited Crush Mix. The first is made up entirely of Smiths songs like “Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me” and is made for moping around because boo-hoo, your crush doesn’t notice you.
This is not that mix.
Rather, this is one that celebrates the unrequited love as a love that cannot ever be, but is still fun to have. It’s the kind of crush that makes you happy and tingly because you know it can never be consummated, which is how it can remain so perfect. This is a mix solely for you to listen to when you are feeling dreamy and excitable and giddy in love, so go crazy.
This mix is called the Grey Chalk Playlist (2014) and it’s fairly brief.
Because I made this one for my TV-crush, I open it with a sound clip from one of his shows so I can hear his sexy, sexy voice. It, ah, sets the mood.
