Because Songs Matter

International Mix Tape Project – December 2006

My intent here at ninebullets is to review the Cd’s I get every month from the IMTP. Well, the CD I got last month was the poo-poo so here’s to hoping this month’s is better. It was way down tempo instrumentals and a few sleepers with a foreign singer. Needless to say, it only got one pass in the car and went straight to the garbage can. Undeterred, we are back with the December mix. I decided to use December as a chance to put together a collection of drinking songs since so much drinking tends to happen with all the parties. I got a little ambitious with the mix and assembled the songs so a story would unfold following the ebb and flow of a night out doing some heavy drinking. I’ll stop shy of calling it a ringing success but the backbone of the story is there. So, like last month I will offer up a copy of this mix to anyone who happens to want it. The first 5 people to email me their mailing address will get a copy….free….and trust me, it is worth the money.
