I discovered an old mix CD that my sister, T made me for the Fall of 2005 and I’ve been playing it the past two weeks. It’s a mix that goes heavy on the Garden State soundtrack, interspersed with Modest Mouse, Cake, Ben Kweller. There’s two really random tracks on the mix: Mozart’s choral piece, “Ave Verum Corpus” and an a cappella “O Death” from the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack. Funny how, throwing this mix on during my commute & bopping around the Portsmouth/Kittery area, I still know all the words to these songs a decade later. Music really does go deep, whether it’s a ridiculous Cake song about sleeping or the iconic Simon & Garfunkel “America.”
