Happy Birthday To Me: My 18th Birthday Party Mix

Helga's 18th Birthday Mix from helgaweber on 8tracks Radio.

When I turned 18, I made a mix CD to give out to the guests at my party. Today, Kaye (the first friend I made in college) tweeted me and said she still had the CD.

I’d rather not wax nostalgic because a) I have work to do and b) emotions are stupid so here is the mix and. The tracklist is under the cut. Warning: it’s a little embarrassing but so is being 18. And 19. And 20. And 21.

Paint Pastel Princess – silverchair
Barely Breathing – Duncan Sheik
Shimmer – Fuel
32 Flavors – Alana Davis
Black Balloon – Goo Goo Dolls
A Whiter Shade of Pale – Annie Lennox
Nicotine Love – Jewel
Crash Into Me – Dave Matthews
Never Is A Promise – Fiona Apple
Sparklegirl – Letters to Cleo
Brackish – Kittie
Punk Rock Princess – Something Corporate
Doll Parts – Hole
Soon – Moonpools & Caterpillar
Almost Happy – K’s Choice
Glorybox – Portishead
Pink – Aerosmith
Life – Our Lady Peace
