    Dear Anna,

    It’s been a few weeks since you left. I was just thinking about you and thought I’d send some music I’m listening to now – maybe it’ll cheer you up. I know you must be going through a hard time. I want to assure you there are no hidden messages here, this is just the music I’m really digging at the moment.

    1) Missing You – John Waite
    2) Hurt – Johnny Cash
    3) All by myself – Eric Carmen
    4) Without you – Air Supply
    5) How am I supposed to live without you – Michael Bolton
    6) I will survive – Gloria Gaynor
    7) How can you mend a broken heart – Bee Gees
    8) I will survive – Cake (version)
    9) Ain’t no sunshine (when she’s gone)
    10) Love hurts (Nazareth)
    11) Don’t go away (Oasis)
    12) You were meant for me (Jewel)
    13) We can work it out – The Beatles
    13) Right here waiting for you – Richard Marx
    14) Anna (Go to him) – The Beatles

    I guess you could say I’m going through a soft, ballad phase, with a lot of dissonant chord progressions and nostalgic lyrics. Hope you enjoy.


    It’s been a while since I sent you that mix tape. I didn’t hear back so I’m not sure it reached you. The Postal service has developed quite the reputation, so I’m using FedEx for this one, with arrival notification, just to make sure it reaches you. Anyway, I’m including an updated CD mix. I’ve really been getting into oldies lately. Also, you’ll notice a surprising amount of country mixed in. Hope you enjoy (again, no hidden messages).

    1) Crying – Roy Orbison
    2) One last cry – Brian McKnight
    3) Not goin’ cry – Mary J Blige
    4) Boys don’t cry – The Cure
    5) Big Boys don’t cry – Lolly
    6) Boys Cry- Eden Kane
    7) Cry, Cry, Cry – Neil Young
    8) Cry for you – Jodeci
    9) Cry just a little bit – Shakin’ Stevens
    10) Cry like a baby – Aretha Franklin
    11) Cry softly lonely one – Roy Orbison
    12) Cryin’ – Aerosmith
    13) Cryin’ like a bitch – Godsmack
    14) Crying in the Rain – Everly Brothers
    15) Crying Time – Ray Charles
    16) I don’t wanna cry – Mariah Carey
    17) I’m Crying – The Animals
    18) I’m so lonesome I could cry – Hank Williams
    19) It’s time to Cry – Paul Anka
    20) You ought to hear me cry – Willie Nelson
    21) Anna – Taken By Trees

    p.s. Since I didn’t hear from you, I wondered if you had my address. I’ve included an envelope with my return address, in case you want to mail me a mix tape, or just come over. The door is unlocked. Apologies some of the ink smeared – I spilled some water as I’ve been hydrating a lot lately.

    Fond Regards,


    Dear Anna,
    UPS notified me that you had received my second package, so that’s good. Anyway, I made one last mix tape. This is just music I’m into at the moment. I guess you could say I’m going through a poppy phase of more accessible lyrics, with a lot of up-tempo melodies and homophony. Hopefully you enjoy. Again, no hidden message.
