This is a question Mix Tapes

Everyone's made a mix tape (or CD, USB stick, or whatever kids do these days). Mostly to get in someone else's pants, but we're sure there are other, lesser, reasons too.

So, who did you make it for and why?
And... what was on it?

Just remembered a good one... how can I forget.

In the days before car stereos were MP3 capable, and good chunks of your music collection could be chucked on to a tiny SD card... the only way of listening to what you wanted to in the car was to burn a CD full of tracks you liked. This was definitely the kind of regime I would care out every 1-2 months... depending on how long it took me to get sick of certain songs, and chuck said CD out of the car window at 70mph.

Anyway, I digress...

One evening, me and a mate were in the car, and thought we'd go pester some charva's with various rock music and amusing ditty's of the annoying variety... which is all well an good when your young and stupid.

Following day comes, and I have my first date with my now-girlfriend. I pick her up from her's, but didn't even notice the music that was playing on the stereo as it was low volumed.

Anyways, driving off to where we are going for our meal, and she asks "do you mind if I have a skip through the CD", to which I, not taking much notice, says "Aye, gan on."

So, she turns up the stereo to which I remark "I don't think you'll find anything you'll like though". After she skips a couple of tracks, I hear quite loudly around me the words "I WISH I WAS A GIRL..."

At this point, I mutter the immortal words "Oh... fuck". That's right, she stumbled upon the song I Wish I Was A Girl by Violent Delight.

But, it doesn't stop there... with such lyrics as:

"I don't care about the blood, I don't care about the pain
Cos being a girl's the only thing that's on my brain"

and, of course, the chorus...

"Some people think I might be gay
But I don't swing the other way
I just wanna be a girl so damn much
To fell my clit as it gets....."

Through the entire of the song, just continued driving, feeling myself getting redder, and redder until getting to place we needed to be.

Thankfully, I managed to get to the restaurant before the screaming part of "Why wasn't I a girl".

Never felt so embarassed about something in my life before. But after a quiet 5 minutes, we had a good laugh about it, and we're still together now.

Length? About 2minutes 40seconds of pure embarassment.

Love that song
"but if I was a girl I couldn't drive no more,
because I couldn't tell the difference 'tween the clutch and the door..."

iTunes music store bites again
I've just bought that song - and the clip of it on ITMS is the bit about "couldn't drive any more..."

I'm now trying to stop myself buying the rest of the album, 'cos it's all great stuff! Thanks for the tip. (Oh, and just to be pedantic, the track's 2:41, apparently).

Ah yes...
My band supported Violent Delight a few years ago. The singer threw a wobbley and smashed a beer bottle. It was funny. Then someone shot me on the arse with a BB gun. It was a strange night.
