    Depends on what sort of music he likes.

    If he's into polkas, "Beer Barrel Polka" is really an essential.

    If he likes marches, pretty much anything by J.P. Sousa.

    Maybe Dixieland? "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise" by Eddie Peabody is really a classic. Most Harry Reser stuff is good, too.

    The new Johnny Cash tribute album should be good if he likes country.

    'Course if he's into classical, there are so many to choose from... everything from Telemann and Corelli at one end of the spectrum to Wagner, Sibelius, and even Copland at the other...

    So, really, it's hard to make a recommendation. :meh:

    Yeah - isn't a mix tap, one of those where the hot and cold water get funnelled though the one output, for the water? ;)

    I thought a mixed tap was when you first filled the pint with Guinness and then floated some Bass on top of it....
     
  11. tsk tsk... jesica my dear. a mixtape comes from the heart, constructed with all the care and intricacy that a spider puts into her web (and possibly with the same intentions, in your case ;)). asking other people for songs to put on this mixtape is like plagiarism.
