Mix CD, Part 1

It's not something I do very frequently - maybe 2-3 times a year - but occasionally I like to pick a theme and make a mix CD that matches it. Even though it may be easy this time, try a pick the theme for a CD made from the following tracks:

  • "Fearful Experience"* - Shoji Meguro - Persona 3 OST
  • "Aura (Evil Version)" - .hack//EXTRA
  • "Come Undone" - The Delgados - Universal Audio
  • "Perfect Blue Buildings" - Counting Crows - August & Everything After
  • "Yellow Cat/Red Cat" - Say Anything - ...Is A Real Boy
  • "Upside Down" - Barenaked Ladies - Everything to Everyone
  • "Balaclava" - Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
  • "Insignificant" - Counting Crows - Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
  • "The Dreaming Tree" - Dave Matthews Band - Before These Crowded Streets
  • "Fear" - Sarah McLachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
  • "Walk On The Ocean" - Toad the Wet Sprocket - Fear
  • "Did I Sleep Through It All?" - Tracy Bonham - Blink the Brightest
While I was making this, I came across another subset of music that I'm going to have to try a mix of someday - sort of related to this theme.

Search me, man. I don't know enough of those songs to pick out a common theme. :-(

Fear. The first two tracks are spooky, and the rest sort of deal with the fear of [insert event here]. Mostly the fear of change or fear of missing out on something. Or possibly just fear in general. It's not a perfect match, but it is close.
