7-Day Wayback Music Challenge - TranceMonday

Delerium feat. Sarah McLachlan - Silence (Tiesto's In Search of Sunrise Remix)

@uwelang has nominated me for this challenge. I will write them in different days not in a row as sometimes I want to write about something else.

Let the music play.

As in the past 2 series I had covered the years 1997 and 1998 I will go now to 1999, the year that people have been saying will be the year of the apocalypse. Well, they've been wrong as nothing happened.

I was entering the 11th grade in high school and was a little too naive for what the world looks like. At that time I was training 2 times a day at the water-polo team for 5 hours in total. The first in the morning from 6:00 to 7:30
and the second in the evening from 17:00 till 20:30. I flunked legal some classes as I had an exemption paper from school from the first hour. As long as I was playing sports and my grades have been in the top 5 of the class nobody would say something. In Romania, not everyone was playing sports as a youngster back in the days, but the ones that did would have turned it almost in a profession.

I was listening to this song and dreaming on my way to school from the pool. It was a half an hour ride with the tram. We had 30-year-old trams that have been refurbished in our city. I was looking out the window just hearing this song and watching everything passing by. For me, the buildings were passing by.

It was a year where I felt growing up, but where life was still very easy. I had to do only 2 major things, learn and play sports, nothing less nothing more. I think it was one of the years that helped me a lot in my evolution when I learned what determination was.

Thank you, Uwe for nominating me.

I nominate @andyjaypowell to show us some music from his youth as today it is #mondaytrance the #tag he has started.

The rules:

  • Choose one song from your high-school/college years.
  • Write a few words about who made you listen to this song for the first time, what this song means to you (Was it a breakup song? You blasted it at 100% on your audio system when you were partying with your friends?) whatever you want.
  • Write your text while listening to the song. As soon as the song ends, wrap up what you where writing and submit it.
  • Do this for 7 days in a row if you get nominated
  • Mention one person who should do this on each day.
  • Tag it with #musicwaybackchallenge and include these rules at the bottom of your post

Klaro :D Ist dein #Tag heute ;)

What an amazing track. One of my favorites. This song really takes me back. Nice post.

I loved this song to bits one of my all time favourites! Even though tiesto left ISOS project I still buy every album that comes out! Richard daurand has done a great job taking the series forward

This challenge sounds catchy, but i don't have any way back song tho lol.

Interesting challenge. I'll try to participate in it, but 20 years have passed since high school.


1999 was 19 years ago ;)
