Sex, Guys & Audiotape: "Horseshoe Bay CD"


This week’s look at lost youth is an all-gal extravaganza, a Freshman year road trip soundtrack par excellence.

Writes Miriam, “Freshman year of college, me and three of my best friends drove to Horseshoe Bay in Texas to spend the night and hang out with the big brother and his friends. One of my friends made this mix, and has been referred to as the ‘Horseshoe Bay CD‘ ever since, and hearkens the memories of old friendships, being young, and loving life.”

(Note: although Miriam doesn’t give a date, the medium – CD – and, more to the point, the inclusion of a song off of a 2003 Decemberists album, dates it to the first half of this decade.)
