young, dumb, in love

My friends man…they’re breaking up, they’re getting back together, they’re moving in together and adopting kitties. My girl is even heading to Buenos Aires to be with her man. So yeah. Just spent a weekend chillin with my best friends from college in a hot tub talking about love over vodka-soaked watermelon (baller status), and the entire time we were backed up by the perfect mixtape from my friend James: YOUNG, DUMB, IN LOVE.

James hits it all with rad 60s girl groups as the melodic glue holding this heartbreaker of a love mix together (in five acts to be exact). The mix had me (completely) at track four: Then He Kissed Me by The Crystals. Hot. Damn.

I can remember rocking out with Elisabeth Shue to Then He Kissed Me during the opening credits of Adventures in Babysitting, and being totally stoked about the MAKING OUT to come in my future. At the time I could not have predicted that some of my hotter high school moments would be initiated over Major LeagueRick “Wild Thing” Vaughn…I guess anything can happen.
