Just finished up a mix CD for a friend of mine who's substantially more punk rock than I am, but appreciates a good pop song now and then.  Tried to split the difference between using it as a means to make fun of my own twee tendencies, and actually making a good mixtape out of it.  Pretty happy with the results.

Tracklist:
1 - Tullycraft - Pop Songs Your New Boyfriend's Too Stupid to Know About
2 - Tired Pony - Get on the Road
3 - Tennis - It All Feels the Same
4 - Red Sullivan - Lightning
5 - The Mountain Goats - Boxcar (Jawbreaker cover)
6 - The Rentals - 1000 Seasons

24-Hour Play Festival Pre-Show playlist. Theme: Songs about not sleeping/staying up all night. Really genre inconsistent because I had to work on the shows first so I only had about 30 minutes to spend on this, and I was very sleep-deprived:

1. Yellowcard - Ocean Avenue
2. All Time Low - Stay Awake
3. Blink-182 - Up All Night
4. Daft Punk - Get Lucky
5. Bon Jovi - I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
6. Talking Heads - Stay Up Late
7. The Kinks - Just Can't go to Sleep
8. Tarkio - Keeping Me Awake
9. The Last Bison - Switzerland
10. Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
11. All-American Rejects - Night Drive
12. Neon Trees - Lessons in Love

[Using the definition of "mixtape" as it's meant in hip hop.]
https://soundcloud.com/stephenkarnas/escape-the-rocket-song

I made this beat out of "Cosy in the Rocket" by Psapp, added a beatbox, wrote some words and rapped over it.

And then as I was recording it, got the idea for the little Yacht Rock coda and put that in too.

I don't "Mediaf!re", but I have a Yacht Rock* playlist that I keep on my phone. I had to grab most of the songs off Teh YooToobz so I ended up making the playlist there too.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwCyGEjWsOBEl6A8LvlXZCC2Atw3cxw7C

There is a little bit of artist duplication - it was hard to limit myself to even four Steely Dan songs.

*that type of slick-produced soft rock from the late '70s and early '80s, exemplified by most of the list below. Some of the list is not strictly Yacht Rock but still fits the vibe.

10cc - The Things We Do for Love
Ace - How Long
Air Supply- All Out of Love
Al Stewart - Time Passages
Alan Parsons Project - Eye in the Sky

Chicago - If You Leave Me Now
Christopher Cross - Ride Like the Wind
Christopher Cross - Sailing
Chuck Mangione - Feels So Good
