Mixtape Madness: Graduation

I am an equal opportunity girl when it comes to music. I am no indie whore or mainstream slut. I just sit on the fine line between the two where I enjoy everything from Jay Z to The Fray to Thriving Ivory. Then there are my indie favorites like Illinois and Black Moth Super Rainbow.

This playlist I am providing you is from a special day in my life: my graduation. Say what, say what? (I said this while I did a brief pelvic thrust and moon walk in the privacy of the gym bathroom.) I listened to this before baccalaureate at the Free Mother and most importantly before graduation because I was freaked out that I would fall.

Enjoy, and tell me what you think. What were the songs you listened to before or after graduation ?
