Ahh, remember mix tapes? In middle school, I'd sit in front of the radio with my recorder to catch a song for posterity (right before the DJ clicked to commercial, of course). I did it so I could play the tune back to my heart's content — and sometimes, if a friend was very lucky, I would turn my favorites into a mix to share.
Now things are easier. Just a couple years ago, an ex made me CDs with downloaded music, and even though they were digital, I still treasured them. They helped me discover new bands I had never heard of, and OK, I tried to dissect every song for hidden clues about our relationship. Who hasn't done the same?
To celebrate the art of the mix tape, I've created a brand new group in the BuzzSugar Community for mix tape creators and their recipients: I Made You a Mix Tape. Once you join, feel free to post your own stories, any song titles from ones you've made (or gotten) in the past, or for kicks, create a new one. Did you make one recently that you're listening to on repeat? Still holding on to your high school boyfriend's featuring "Crash Into Me?" It's all about having a bit of nostalgic fun, so go here now and share. Happy mixing!
