Watching Nick and Norah's infinite playlist i was reminded of one of my most favourite things to do, make mixed cd's for people. I absolutely love going through my music and putting my favourite tracks onto a cd and sending it to someone. It is a great way to introduce people to new bands or songs that they may not have had the luck of coming across yet, or as a way to get to know someone a little bit better. Music can say so much to somebody. I remember when my best friend was in a car crash and almost died. It was one of the scariest times of my life and i was so scared and upset that i didn't know how to communicate with her. After careful consideration i decided to make her a mix cd to tell her how much she meant to me in a time when i could'nt find the words to express it. That was the first mix cd i ever made for someone and from then on we made cd's for each other and passed them back and forwards. Whatever situation arose we would find songs to suit the occasion, and these were especially meaningful when we went to different parts of the country for university. Have you ever made a mixed cd for somebody? What do they mean to you?
