Another Year Older, Another Tape More Confused

Just in time for a Friday Non-Random Top Ten (+15), but way late to actually celebrate my birth, I got around to making my annual birthday mixed tape last night. (For why I make mixed cassettes and avoid that darn digital technology that probably has something to do with a series of tubes, go read an earlier excuse. I would link to one, but I'm having trouble finding it.) Freakily, this list means I will have mentioned Mott the Hoople two entries in a row.
