This week's mixtape is the usual old-n-new mushed together to give you a lil upbeat Friday feeling. It's pretty happy even if the lyrics aren't (strange but true in most of these tracks). A lil new music trendy, with a bit 80s nostalgia thrown in for good measure, a small dose of early 90s, and finally rounding off with some 60s soul to make your boogie cup runneth over.
Personally most of these songs take me straight back to where I first heard them, whether that be watching "Real Genius", a 1984 gem starring Val Kilmer, or sneaking to watch 120 minutes at 12am on a Sunday night in 1992 (oooh cheeky!) Now who wouldn't like a big kick of nostalgia on a Friday? Who I ask ya?!
