Forecast for the Future

"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late. 

Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."

- Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

I think you should make a mix of 25 songs (you're 25, right?) that each represent a year of your life. They could reflect your musical taste at a given age, but I think it would be more interesting if you mulled over the events of each year (those that you can remember, those that stand out), and chose a song to reflect those events and the general "gesture" that that year makes in your memory.

This is a great idea--lots of people have suggested age-related ideas but I think I like this one the most. The only question I have is of form--if it would be more or less interesting to attempt to pull each of the 25 songs from each of the 25 years (either in order or not). then again... that might take forever and might make me lose my shit.
