And, along with artist overkill, I included songs that may have been OK at first, but over time I grew to hate. Did I say "songs"? I meant "song", as in "Grandma Got Run Over...", well, you know. Ugh. I quickly got to the point of never wanting to hear it ever again. But it was on my awesome mixtape!! What to do?
Christmas Music I
Well, what I did was endure for a few years. And make "Christmas Music III" a year or so later, and then "Christmas Music IV". You can see by the cassette case inserts that I, II, and III used the same early laser printer font, and IV branched out to some other wild and crazy typestyle.
Christmas Music II
These weren't bad, really. They were enjoyable apart from some minor aggravations (which, after all these years, I still unwittingly introduce from time to time). I find it amusing that I have the songs listed on the CD inserts but no artists. Due to space, I'm sure, but some of the songs I have no idea who the artist is. And I'm not sure I have a cassette player in the house. I think maybe my son's truck still has one.
Christmas Music III
So, these sufficed until the CD years, when these did serve as the basis for the track sequence on my first two comp CDs, that I still play to this day. We'll talk about them in a later post.
Christmas Music IV
But, how on Earth will I go from a 90-minute cassette to a 76 minute CD?!?! I'm losing 14 minutes of music! More to come...
