too many themes to combine into a clever title

herein contains the following:
hints of things to come, thematic elements including summer, nights, driving, driving in the summer at night, thunderstorms, sing alongs, rock and roll and also: good looking rock and roll. also: good 80s memories and tapping your knee/the steering wheel in time with the beat, while possibly rocking your head back and forth.
and another hint of things to come: Z.
alright alright, on to the music in a second. but first: if you were stymied by my bandwidth being exceeded, i apologize. i am working to solve the problem, and so i hope if you have any hosting suggestions or other commentary on the subject, you will share them with me. and now, with no further brouhaha, i give you the music.

cadence weapon - tattoos (and what they really feel like)
the spill canvas - all over you
jason mraz - i'm yours (NOT the new version, in my opinion, this older version is much nicer)
mark ronson feat. amy winehouse - valerie
mates of state - my only offer
robyn - be mine!
annie - i know ur girlfriend hates me
level 42 - lessons in love
danko jones - still in high school
the republic tigers - buildings and mountains

**please note, with my apologies: for the time being, no more right clicking on the links, kids...it's left clicks for now while i sort out the situation**

still a knucklehead

i have new hardware, so i am VERY busy making multiple playlists, all with exceedingly (and unnecessarily) cryptic names. some involve long strings of numbers. it's good time. alas, the ipod has seemingly bit the dust, but in between gadgets, i found time to make a pant load of mix cds. here are some of the songs that made appearances, and also: i think you would look super cool if you were playing them loudly at a red light with the windows down. because as we all know, music isn't about art, it's about looking cool.

Coolzey - He Did

tittsworth - easy like sunday mornin (commodores remix)

Ghosthustler - Someone Elses Ride

alphabeat - 10000 nights of thunder

MGMT - Time to Pretend

the hush sound - honey

The Cool Kids - What Up Man

Arrested Development - Mr. Wendal

Naughty By Nature - Everything's Gonna be Alright

so...how do we all feel about "mixtapes" and "playlists" once or twice a week? I feel very very good about it.

also, keep an eye out while i reveal the awesomeness that is my new toy!
