Headphones, by Björk

Creating a mixtape is such an art. Who am I going to give this one to? What do I want to provoke on him/her? A mixtape can save a life. ["Your tape, it saved my life"]. A couple of days I saw someone to whom I gave a mixtape a couple of years ago. She told me: "I never thanked you for that tape you gave me". She also said that in spite it had been four years since I gave it to her, she still listened to it whenever she felt life didn't make any sense. I hadn't seen her in three years, so I was amazed to learn that. I had already forgotten that I'd given her a mixtape. I do that kind of things only to very, very close people to me. Dear friends, mostly. Maybe this season I'll do some. Maybe not.
