In a car it is quite common that temperature changes from -10°C to +50°C, which is known to kill tapes and cds. That’s one of the reason why I copy them first before listening to music in my car. That way I do not loose any CDs – and it is also possible to take the best tracks from several CDs and merge it into one. Finally the CD is inserted in my CD player and rests there until the cd is broken or I cannot stand the songs anymore.
This time I have found such an old cd which was made around march 2000. Some of the songs were played in the charts before – maybe a reason why I threw it away. But it’s amazing how taste changes.
