Mixtape Monday: "B"

Last Monday, HERC blew the dust off of his longest running series of mixtapes, the ones he made for the woman who would become his lifetime partner in crime.  Today, he's back with the second in the series, the twenty track tape simply known as B.  We're still in late Summer 1984, perhaps July or early August this time out.

After a nearly flawless debut, the future MRS. HERC made just a couple of minor mistakes labeling the second tape HERC had made for her.  Can you spot what they are?  Do HERC a solid and don't tell his missus.  This time out, HERC went with a few of his favorites alongside mostly her favorite songs.  This tape got a lot of plays in her car.  In 1983, after graduating high school, MRS. HERC pimped her ride, a 1976 Camaro LT.  Among the many changes she made were new wheels, new navy blue paint, louvres for the rear window, rear spoiler and a top of the line Alpine deck with four new speakers.  HERC would be knocked unconscious for several hours by a drunk driver running a red light while driving that Camaro years later.  The car was totaled and the only thing HERC remembers about the incident was that AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" was the song playing just before impact.  While HERC continued listening to that song, one of his favorites, through the years, he would drive out of his way for at least the next three years to avoid that intersection.
