We were en route to the South Tyrol for the first time, in 2000. It was a pretty long bus ride with a bunch of kids from high school. You can believe that the trip wasn't without fun, drama and even more fun. I had a broken ankle at the time, but I didn't want to give up seeing the mountains and breathing the fresh air, so I still tagged along. My plan was to stay at the hotel and read, or do the same on the top of the slope. I compiled several discs for the road, and I can still remember the tracklist of one in particular.
I have no idea how I got to this track in the first place, but I remember listening to it all the way on the road.
Another part of my life drove me towards mashups, and was I in for a surprise when these memories were triggered by this tune again a decade later as part of this production. Not just because of the Join Me theme, but "The Time Is Now" was on that tracklist too :)
