I join this contest with a tape I already put together some years ago. I hope that's not against the rules. The mix is not about one single trip but about a whole series of roadtrips from 2000 to 2002. The first years at university. I had a neighbour who came from the same region and we drove together to our parents in his car almost twice a months at the weekends. I had a crush on him but I never told him because I didn't really want to be with him (he had already told me about his girlfriend at the destination and a lover at the other destination, so I knew how he treated girls, well, otherwise he was the nicest guy ever). Whatever, I don't care about him anymore but I will never forget those trips. It is funny how to get to know people just driving in a car together some hours frequently. We talked about everything! One big topic was music and so I made this mix with music we listened to on that roadtrips.

Track 12 from Kommt zusammen
Length: 00:03:39
Year: 2001
Track Description:
The first time I heard that song was on the radio in the beginning of our first roadtrip. We both thought it was such a nice song and didn't even know the name of the artist. I felt later that parts of the lyrics described my feelings and so whenever I heard this band I had to think about him.

Track 2 from Gran Turismo
Length: 00:03:38
Year: 1998
Track Description:
Another song which was on the radio when we first begin to talk about music. The Cardigans have always been my favourite band but many friends didn't even know their name (or just lovefool). Even if my driver was more into hip hop in general he liked them, too and it made the first talks very easy (I didn't mention, we didn't really know us before).

Track 6 from In Blue

Year: 2000
Track Description:
Althoug this song was on a tape a friend gave to him, we listened a lot to the radio. The programs in our home region was bad and they played the same stupid songs a hundred time a day (I know that's why it is called mainstream). I hated radio music before I moved to my study place. The radio stations there were much better and I realised that it is a real good kind of media. And I never listened more to radion than on these roadtrips.

Track 4 from The Green Album

Year: 2001
Track Description:
Another topic we talked about a lot was holidays. We both liked travelling but each of us had friends which either didn't like to leave home or never had money or no time or the intrests of holidays were too different. So we always stayed at home in summer hoping there will be a holiday the next year. Well, I wonder why we didn't go on holiday together (well, I was to shy those days).

Year: 1997
Track Description:
I remember when we once were in a traffic jam and no car could drive. We just stood there without any wheel moved. It was so funny when he started dancing in the car to this old 60ies song. Even if this drive took twice as long as it took us otherwise to get home, it was the most happiest and we had so much fun. As it is said it's not about the destination but the trip!

As I mentioned he was in general in the hiphop scene and since Nelly Furtado is between music styles and does hiphop, too, he loved this song. I don't really like hiphop but though I think she makes good music. And it was very intresting what my driver told me about his hip hop and grafitti organization.

Track 2 from A Camp

Track Description:
Ok, this song is not really a part of the roadtrip because we never listened to it together. But I told him very much about the A Camp concert were I had been. And even this lyrics made me think of him when I listened to the songs after one of our trips. Of course we shared the money for the fuel and so I payed him. Well, I could buy him (as my driver) but I couldn't make him love me.

Track Description:
When you are in the same age and there is an "old" song of your first teenage times on the radio, it is very nice to talk about school and class trips and how glad you are those times are over now because university is much better than school. "Zombie" is one of the songs which remind me to a classtrip when I was around 14.

If someone would have told me about 10 years ago that I would put a Backstreet Boys song on a mix, I would have told him or her, he or she's crazy. But even the songs you laughed about before sound nice when you have fun together making jokes about boygroups and their fans.

Track 7 from Kommt zusammen
Length: 00:04:46
Year: 2001
Track Description:
Usually I wouldn't take three songs by the same band on one mix but this is the perfect end. The lyrics are (maybe not the best translation): "We were 2 of millions of stars which depart more and more from each other". We didn't drive to our parents that often anymore and found new friends at our study place. He wasn't my neighbour anymore, I fell in love with someone else and finally I did a workterm at another place. So our roadtrips stopped and we haven't met again. But looking back it was a really nice time with roadtrips which I won't forget.

My first thought after seeing Madonna after that incredible Cardigans song was "holy hell". This is quite a mixed bag. + for "Playground Love" too.

Playground love could almost be the best song ever, maybe not; but it is really good, and Weezer is always a good choice
