Daily Prompt: Mix Tape Masterpiece

You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song. Music covers such an electic range of moods. There is no one song that defines me. Each is a uniquely styled hexagon on a larger quilt. Even instrumentals can be emotionally uplifting. Here are 25 songs that capture my emotions and persona. If you extrapolate the restless, romantic wanderer who yearns for the glory days of the past but is still hopeful, sometimes desperately so, for whatever tomorrow may bring, you’re pretty much on the mark.

  • Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Simon and Garfunkel)
  • The Search is Over (Survivor)
  • Memory (Theme from Cats) (Barry Manilow)
