BitchTapes: We'll Get Through This

bitchtapes

Is there such a thing as break-up season? If so, I think we’re in the middle of it.  A few of my good friends are in the middle of break-ups right now and as I was looking around for a song to comfort them, I heard Mika Ben Yami’s “Nothing is Wrong.” Geez, what a perfect song. It inspired this whole mixtape of somewhat upbeat and sincere songs that are good for sad times.  

We'll Get Through This from BitchTapes on 8tracks Radio.

no sound on embedded link in Safari

When I click on the embedded link on a Mac (10.9) using Safari, the progress bar moves but there is no sound. Same computer with Firefox, and it works fine. And if I paste the 8tracks.com link directly in Safari, then it works fine as well. Some sort of glitch. Great music....
