This is a question Mix Tapes

Everyone's made a mix tape (or CD, USB stick, or whatever kids do these days). Mostly to get in someone else's pants, but we're sure there are other, lesser, reasons too.

So, who did you make it for and why?
And... what was on it?

I was always making my own obsessively-indexed mix tapes. I started off by taping the Top 40 off the radio, becoming highly skilled with the pause button, enabling me to cut out any trace of Tony Blackburn from the finished product

Soon, I started making them for friends.

Presently, I found myself so hopelessly in love with a certain young lady from college, and it was only a matter of time before I would offer her my services with a C-90.

"Tell you what," I said on a chaperoned visit to a local public house where she drunk me to poverty on diet coke, "I'll make you a mix tape so we can see what kind of music we both like."

This - an offer to the girl who obsessed over Stevie Wonder's 'I just called to say I love you' - was doomed from the start.

Overtaken by hormones and the fiery desires of my loins, I decided to put in a short - and, in retrospect, decidedly sad spoken interlude halfway through side two.

The gist of it was "Debbie, I want to see you with very few clothes on."

I gave her a few days to let the message - mixed together with my irresistible choice of 80s New Rom standards - sink in, before giving her a call:

"Hey Debbie, did you listen to that tape I made you?"

"I didn't have time. I gave it to my brother."


"He's joining the RAF Regiment. I thought it would be nice to give him something to listen to in his barrack room."


I was so scared I spent the weekend mulching into my trousers like Monty Don on an acid trip.

The full 12" remix version of this tale of woe can be found HERE. That is all.
