If you've ever had occasion to listen to soft rock, whether it was during a road-trip hostage crisis, or while hunting and gathering at the grocer's, or while waiting to have a tooth pulled, then you know how depressing it can be and how appropriate many of the genre's songs would be for inclusion on a suicide mixtape. Drifting away to the sounds of that ever-so-lilting AM flotsam and jetsam might just be the ticket for softly going into the night. And if that's a dreadful thought for you to think, then think of this tape as a sad bastard mix tucked away for a rainy day*.
Post Script- (I'd rather listen to this tape than R.E.M.'s "Automatic For the People" like a certain famous someone did before finishing himself off with a bang. But whatevers.)
*Disclaimer: This is a hypothetical suicide mixtape. It's not the first or the last to be made in the wide world of mixtapes. Life is great, more or less. This isn't meant to be all scary. Thanks.
