Mixtape: A Novel

My National Novel Writing Month novel was about a mix tape this year. The idea was that the main character Ralph got an old mixtape that he had made 11 years earlier in the mail. He spent the novel trying to figure out who sent the tape to him.

Below is the mix that I made to be the tape. I have mixed feelings about this mix. I liked the tape when I listed to it, but it seemed a little too obvious. I am not sure if I am over thinking it or not. Tell me what you think.
