Mixtape Memories

This week's League of Extraordinary Bloggers assignment:

What songs were forever being looped on your car’s stereo back in high school. A cassette could only hold a dozen or so songs, so that’s the magic number of songs to list. If your car didn’t have a cassette deck in high school, go ahead and pretend it did, you punk.

I started High School in Fall 1989 and graduated in Spring 1993, so I wanted to represent the entire four years here with a well rounded selection of actual cassettes I owned and played in the vehicles I owned and drove to High School (first, a 1981 Mercury Capri and second, a 1971 Torino Country Squire.)

Damn I miss that station wagon!
