My most favorite tape

Sorry that this has taken a while.  My tape player in my home decided it didn’t want to work anymore.  😦  

This is the original of my most favorite mix tapes.  For some reason (probably because we played it to death) we had to remake, but the remake wasn’t the exact copy of the original.  I’ll list the original and then copy as well

This is the original playlist

  • American Pie
  • Good Golly Miss Molly
  • Elvira
  • The Joker
  • You can Call Me Al
  • Love Potion #9
  • My Boyfriend’s Back
  • Summertime Blues (The original, not Alan Jackson)
  • Shake Rattle and Roll
  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Foxy Lady
  • Keep Your Hands to Yourself
  • 3 AM Eternal
  • Tutti Fruitti
  • Feed my Frankenstein
  • Hippy, Hippy Shake
  • Friends in Low Places
  • Things that make you go Hmmm….

That was the original.  When I remade it, I couldn’t find some of the albums, so I had to put different songs on it.  Side 2 starts with Bohemian Rhapsody and was heavily influenced by the movie Wayne’s World.

  • American Pie
  • Good Golly Miss Molly
  • Elvira
  • The Joker
  • You can Call Me Al
  • Love Potion #9
  • Summer Time Blues
  • Shake Rattle and Roll

  • Keep Your Hands to Yourself
  • Things That make you go Hmm…
