’90s MINUTE MIXTAPE “A Strange Kind of Love”

 

For the month of LOVE we’ve made an homage to the weirdly ’90s version of love songs.  These aren’t necessarily love songs at all.  But they mention love.  Or kisses.  Or heart-shaped boxes, that could really be about anything.

ENJOY!

About ’90s MINUTE MIXTAPES

 

 See all the mixtapes

 

’90s Minute Mixtapes are a throwback to the era that saw the height of the Mixtape.  In the ’90s the technology existed to combine vinyl, cassettes, and CDs into a mix, making everyone an at-home DJ, with an arsenal of music at their disposal.

Typically running 90 minutes (45 to a side), these mixtapes were made for a variety of purposes: the classic road-trip mix, the work mix, the workout mix, the sleep mix, the bus mix, and, the mixtape of all mixtapes, the ‘I like you but I don’t know how to say it in words so here is a mixtape of how I feel that hopefully will make you fall in love with me’ mix. (It rarely worked – but led to some great mixes!)

 

While these mixtapes may have focused on the music of the ’90s, it was not uncommon to see songs from widely different eras and genres making their way into the mix.

And so it will be with our ’90s Minute Mixtapes.

Expect the unexpected.  Just 90 minutes of great music.
