Songs of heartbreak accompany us throughout time as we makeup and breakup. What mix of songs do you play when you crush, love, fuck, fuck-up, pine, ache, obsess and deny?
Can a compilation of songs save you or explain you? Can the mood or theme of the mixtape make the object of your affections UNDERSTAND how you really feel in your achy, achy tortured soul? Is the art of the mixtape a universal art form?
Fade Into You asked artists to assign a song title to their visual expression of the exquisite arc of pain we call love. From the fleeting first-love, to an unquenchable lust, to the socialized ideal of commitment, and finally to the inevitable end of despair and heartbreak. It is art inspired by the history of love and loss in music within the context of an individual’s relationships and experiences.
