Mixtape

Album: The Pursuit (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Cullum explained this song: "I've been introducing it onstage as a disco song about the death of the music industry. It's a love song for the music geek in me. The ultimate romantic act back-in-the-day used to be making a mixtape for a girl. I decided the ultimate modern romantic act would be to get your tape player down from the attic and go out and find a Maxell C90 and record a mixtape. It's even more romantic now because of the technological rewind you have to do."
