I was looking over my collection of Dia Del Valentin mixtapes,  and I swear to God I’m missing one. I’m pretty sure I put The Kooks’ “Do You Wanna,” Queens of the Stone Age’s “Misfit Love” and LCD Soundsystem’s “Someone Great” together once. To remedy that and all the issues I had with having to omit stuff last week, here’s a backup playlist.

This is part alternates, part things I’ll never be able to include and part me just thoroughly enjoying making playlists. Maybe I’ll use this as a list to cull tasty licks from for next year’s list. Although this might fit on a CD, the chances of it ever getting burned are very, very slim.

The ordering mostly revolves around genres, making transitions from rock into pop and ending with rap and R&B. Quality is not guaranteed since this look like an hour and is more of a placeholder than anything else. I might have only been performing at 80% for this one because I kinda just threw some songs I had been considering two weeks ago together instead of adjusting the playlist every day for an entire month. True story: Dia Del Valentins can take a month and, even then,  I’ll wonder if the results were really any good  and sometimes make another. Maybe that’s what happened with Dia Del Valentin 1 and Dia Del Valentin Dos
