Go ahead and raise your hand if you made mix tapes or cd's when you were younger. I'm sitting here feeling absolutely stoked that I can say...
- I made mix TAPES
- I made mix CD's and now
- I make mix PLAYLISTS
The good ole days of mix tapes takes me way back. Sitting in front of the boom box or stereo with a blank tape in the tape deck just waiting to hit record at just the right time. No internet to grab the song off of YouTube, to easy. I loved the challenge, I enjoyed sitting there shushing anyone who dared enter the room while I was recording my song.
Why did I make the mix tapes? It wasn't for my true love or even friends. I selfishly made them for myself to listen to as I did my homework or stared at the ceiling daydreaming.
I still do this, kind of, I make playlists just for me.
- To workout
- To listen on long drives
- To help me get dinner to the table
- To help me get my graduate school work done
Thank you Apple for the iTunes store where I can purchase music for my mixed playlists.
Did you make mix-tapes? Who did you make them for? Go ahead tell your story.
