Alright everyone, I've posted a lot of of 80s music lately, and would like to share what started out as a project for an audio class and ended up turning into a rather lengthy mixtape of sorts. The mix is chock full of 80s music, and if you grew up on this music you'll likely enjoy many of the songs included. All of the songs segue into one another in one continuous mix, though some segues are rather rough in my opinion. I'll post a track list as well as the link of where you can get it from, as I'd like some feedback on how it sounds.

Songs in Order
Jan Hammer- Miami Vice Theme
The Cult- She Sells Sanctuary
Nena- 99 Luftballons
White Snake- Here I Go Again
Bangles- Walk Like An Egyptian
The B-52's- Love Shack

Here is the link for those that want to take a listen Download Here

As you can see it is a very long mix, clocking in at 78 minutes and 29 seconds. I intend to break it up into smaller bits at a later point in time, but thats after I continue to refine it.


  1. The tape alone makes me nostalgia pretty hard. Looking forward to see the tracklist.

  2. didn't grow up in that age, but dire straits are cool

  3. hahaha i remember my first mix tape i gave a girl... was also my last

  4. I really feel like the mp3 is the death of the mixtape, not like i've seen a real mixtape before, just mix CD's

  5. Also, I love the songs, havnt heard loveshak in a long time

  6. I had to keep it under 80 minutes, and am also missing The Joy Division, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Dexys Midnight Runners. I plan on making another mix soon.

  7. I actually have some Maiden in another mix I'm cleaning up right now. Be on the lookout for it soon!

  8. i might illegally download all of that, lol

  9. The B-52's and white snake... lol THROW BACK,

    love it!
