It was a lipstick sunset.
Do you know the song? I have a lovely memory of working with a woman one summer who was still receiving mixed tapes by an old flame. They lived in different parts of the country, but every once in awhile a cassette tape full of music would arrive in her mailbox. Their lives had moved on, but he still thought of her.
She shared her favorite tape with me, I dubbed a copy (remember tape-to-tape?) and listened to the patchwork of songs all summer. "Lipstick Sunset" by John Hiatt was one of my favorites.
