it's berlin. and it's winter.

it's berlin. and it's winter (mixtape #5)

my favorite historical event definitely is the fall of the berlin wall... i get really emotional when i see images of the people celebrating by the wall, crossing the border between east and west...
so for this month's mixtape i made a selection of songs inspired by that. i mean, the selection is a combination of songs from some of my favorite german bands, songs that i was listening when i went to berlin (most of them were listened while taking walks through the tiergarten) and songs recently discovered that i think that go well with berlin.
the opening track is the german hit (almost hymn?) from the cold-war era '99 luftballons' (yeah, i'm that obvious) and closing the mix is the german version of david bowie's 'heroes' (in my opinion, way better than the english version).
hope you enjoy!
