Because I am busy as hell, and in celebration of completing the first draft, here is the mix I call ‘the soundtrack to Collide, if it were ever made into a film’. The highlights of it, at least. Some of these will be familiar from Jenna and Scott’s mix a few weeks back. Of note: NO Tori Amos (! – okay, I’d find a place, but not on the main selections) and no Dresden Dolls…. whoa. Funny fact: five of these tracks are the closing tracks of their respective albums. Hmm.
