    This is the quintessential mix tape from my teen years. Yes, I was teen in the 80's when we all thought the world would end with Reagan pushing a button so there's a certain undercurrent of despair and lack of care for a tomorrow that won't come to the music.
    I can't take credit for this mix. A female friend made it and gave copies to everybody in my circle of friends. Originally created on a 90 minute tape, she "remastered" it onto CD for everyone when collecting mp3s became big in the late 90's.

    I think it has a bit of a "dark" John Hughes movie vibe to it.

    Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio
    The Alarm - The Stand
    Lords of the New Church - Open Your Eyes
    Oingo Boingo - Not My Slave
    Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen in Love
    Love and Rockets - No New Tale to Tell
    Smithereens - Blood and Roses
    Planet P - Why Me
    PIL - Order of Death
    Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays
    The Cure - Let's Go to Bed
    Concrete Blonde - Still in Hollywood
    Duran Duran - Planet Earth
    Shriekback - Nemesis
    The Vapors - Turning Japanese
    The Church - Under the Milky Way

    And yep, I still pop it in every few months for a listen.

    Since I'm taking this super-CD to my grave, it's all over the place! But it's a "mix tape" blend, partly chosen from greatest hits of past mix tapes. It's intended to loop forever, in my grave, I guess. :p

    1. Planet Claire - The B-52's
    2. Running Up That Hill - Kate Bush
    3. The Crossing - Grace Jones
    4. You Are Always on My Mind - Pet Shop Boys
    5. Under the Milky Way - The Church
    6. Love, Reign o'er Me - The Who
    7. Echoes - Pink Floyd
    8. In the Cloud Forest - Andy Summers & Robert Fripp
    9. Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29 - Wendy Carlos (1968)
    10. In Paradisum - Gabriel Fauré
    11. Siegfried's Death and Funeral March - Richard Wagner
    12. The Battle of Yavin - John Williams
    13. Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
    14. Monkey Man - The Rolling Stones
    15. Downtown Train - Tom Waits
    The Fauré Requiem piece is passable, although I prefer it with pipe organ only. I'd much prefer another recording of the Wagner. "Echoes" is on Meddle.

    P.S. That was a little bit of work, but I enjoyed picking those out.
