"Mixtape" as written by Jamie Cullum and Ben Cullum....
Everything I know is you
Let me tell you what we're listening to
I'm a gentle soul I'm sure
But on the stereo I'm a dictator
Do you even have a tape machine?
To facilitate my plastic dreams
All the things that I have seen, from
Morrissey to John Coltrane ah!
Cinematic Orchestra, De La Soul the Shangri-La's
An adolescent love letter, a sparkling jewel of manual labor

I'll make you mixtape that's a blueprint of my soul
It may sound grand but babe it's all you need to know
I'll make you a mixtape that will charm you into bed
It details everything that's running 'round my head

That is running 'round my head

Fondling, record and play
Without you it's records night and day
This ain't no disc of MP3's
This one's handmade, fashioned lovingly

Plant the rhythm in your bones
You're the only angel in headphones
My love can paint a million tones
From Nine Inch Nails to Louis Armstrong
So resurrect your stereo
And the swathes of melodies will flow
Thelonious, Maurizio

I tell you babe it will make your heart glow
I'll make you mixtape that's a blueprint of my soul
It may sound grand but babe it's all you need to know
I'll make you a mixtape that will charm you into bed
It details everything that's running 'round my head

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    General CommentJamie is notorious for his wide appreciation of music, which is reflected in this song.
    For me, it's sort of a Ben Folds-esque kickback to the days of the old mixtapes, when you had to put a lot more thought and effort into making a mix for a girl. 'It details everything that's running round my head' is all too familiar, especially when you're having crazy thoughts and don't have a way to express them to someone, so you make them a mix that covers the bases.
