When I first approached this mixtape I wanted to create the ultimate romantic comedy soundtrack. However, once I started mixing some of these songs it slowly morphed into the ultimate Girls episode soundtrack. I then thought about the new Springsteen biography and especially the albums Tunnel of Love and Lucky Town, which focus of the end of the singer’s first marriage and the beginning of his second. The premise quickly changed again.
And so 72% Match (19% Enemy) was very much inspired by one of the best storytellers of our time (Springsteen) and the voice of her generation (or a voice of a generation) – Lena Dunham. In the spirit of those two talented individuals this mixtape is semi-autobiographical, semi-fictional, a little cheesy and (hopefully) enjoyable.
