Mixtape: The Best of Song Of The Day, Vol. 1


All right savages. Song Of The Day's closing up shop just six weeks from today, but as is my wont when commemorative-type things are happening, I'm giving you a retrospective mixtape blowout. The Best of Song Of The Day is coming out in four 2-hour volumes, in very rough chronological order. This first one'll take you from the very beginning through July 2013, when I still didn't know what the hell I was doing. 35 great, well-loved, interesting, or completely failed (but notably so) tracks that were featured as Song Of The Day at some point. It's a thrill and a half. Enjoy.

(Volume 2 is also up if you know where to look, but I won't promote it here until I'm desperate.)
