Movie of the Year: 1984 – Mixtape Part One

Movie of the Year: 1984

Mixtape Part One

We are making a mixtape of all the best 1984 jams in our 1984 Mixtape Part One!

Mixtapes are so important. But it could be argued that they were even more important in 1984. This was the time of the tape, baby. Cassets as far as the eye could see. To celebrate how important mixtapes were in 1984, we are doing something we almost never do except for every season: we are making a mixtape to celebrate a great year in music.

We only think about movies here on Movie of the Year (well, and sometimes years), and so we’ve been on top of highlighting all the great movies of 1984, but we would be remiss (a fireable offense here) not to mention that this might also be one of the best years in music history…wait, Music of the Y—nah, that’d never work.

However, a mixtape of the best 1984 tunes surely would, which is why we invited friends taylor and Nate to come get this done!

Abortion is healthcare

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit

If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources:
