Songs to Mend a Broken Heart

This is a mix for anyone who has loved and lost. The songs chosen represent the multitude of emotions that we struggle with in getting over. As I was putting these tracks together I initially envisioned more of a linear plot line. The final mix represents the reality of the situation. Namely that we go back and forth until finally one day we are ready to love again. That is what the mix is all about, mending a broken heart.

Thanks to Kyle Pugh for the sweet cover art, and to the folks at the Wekkender for hosting this. Respect to all the artists whose work has made its way into my life and onto this tape.  Links and track list are after the juuuuump...
