Music Monday: R.I.P Marissa Cooper - Shannon Elizabeth Murphy

Posted by Shannon Elizabeth Murphy, 2 years, 2 months ago

Shout out to all my ladies and dudes who spent grade 9 and beyond writing Mr. Marissa Cooper, Mrs. Seth Cohen or Mrs. Sandy Cohen in their notebooks. A call of praise to all hosts of weekly O.C. parties (thank your parents again for all those Dixie Cups of Fresca and bowls of Sun Chips). For those who made Chrismukkah lists and claimed that they were Death Cab for Cutie fans before S01 E01: this mixtape is for you. It's hard to believe that The O.C. is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, making myself and other Millennials feel "old." Enjoy this mixtape that I made honouring all the great tunes featured on the show's four season run.
