Every summer I packed my bags and moved out to grandma Birgit and grandpa Harry's summer place where I lived the whole summer.
I had my very own set of summer friends and I was always happy to see them.
This might seem so far away from who I am today, but as a kid and pre-teens, I loved to be out in the nature by my self or go fishing fresh bass for breakfast at 04.00 AM with grandpa.
One day I was hanging out with my funny friend "Ulle", it was the summer break between 6'th Degree and 7'th Degree, I was 11, and as we sat in her room taking about far out stuff she put a cassette on.
Immediately I lost track of everything and felt like I was having an outer body experience and I amost got light headed.
"-What's this? WHAT'S THIS, ULLE!!!
-It's some tape I got from a guy I'm in love with.
- But, what is this pure and strange sound?
-They are called Depeche Mode.
Depeche Mode, I mumbled to myself."
That second my life changed forever.
I've found home.
I went back and got a cassette and we sat down in her bed as she copied the two sides with the records: Some Great Reward and Construction Time Again from my new House Gods; Depeche Mode.
I listened to my cassette every day. By this time I knew nothing about the subculture followed with this clean sound, I just tripped and fall by the music.
Still to this day nothing makes me feel better then really good electro music (love excluded).
I have Ulle to thank for finding this life. Thank's, Ulle!
Depeche Mode had such a great impact of my life so it will be next My Music Mondays as well
