06/10/2005 11h03 Paris V - Campus Jussieu, opposite entrance to building 50

Just a couple of meters from #153 there was another small bit of cassette tape. This strand stems from a telephone answering machine tape. Recorded at half speed, just some seconds ...

06/10/2005 11h00 Paris V - Campus Jussieu, opposite entrance to building 50

Partypop. We hear the Backstreet Boys with an extract from their "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)", and Sandy Valentino asking "Pourquoi?" (from her album La Réponse est oui) ...
[ see also find #231 ]

05/22/2005 12h30 Amsterdam (the Netherlands) - Ruysdaelkade, opposite nr. 149

Shazam [ nov. 24th, 2009 ] recognized Turkish pop singer Gülben Ergen, singing Uçacaksin. That means: "You will fly" (though until the day I learn a decent bit of Turkish, it will continue to sound like 'Michael Jackson' to my ears...)
151.

05/12/2005 14h50 Bobigny - avenue Jean Jaurès, opposite nr. 189

Second of two bits of tape wound around the same one of the little metal pyramids that in the town of Bobigny are lining the tram track ... far more dirty and damaged as #150, indicating that this bit had been 'wound out there' for quite some time. On it: a rhythm & blues track and, on the other side, Michael Jackson ...
Shazam and SoundHound [ feb. 28th, 2010 ] recognized the song "It's probably me", by Sting and Eric Clapton, from the soundtrack to the movie Lethal Weapon 3 (1992), and Jackson's "Jam" (from the album Dangerous).

05/12/2005 14h50 Bobigny - avenue Jean Jaurès, opposite nr. 189

One of two different bits of tape wound around the same one of the little metal pyramids that in the town of Bobigny are lining the tram track ... Arabic.

05/12/2005 14h35 Bobigny - rue de Stalingrad

On the lawn across the tram track, just opposite of where I picked up #148. French caribbean.

05/12/2005 14h30 Bobigny - 79, rue de Stalingrad

Among dirt and weeds near the rusty metal gate I found part of the plastic of a cassette, and a tiny bit of tape (see picture). The plastic stems from a commercially produced cassette, and contains text in a eastern European language. One can read "z sve snage - live" and "ALID BESLIC", as well as the cassette editor's name: Naraton. From googling I learned that this is a Yugoslavian release. The artist being Halid Beslic, and the title "Iz sve snage - live"; I do not know whether the bit of tape stems from precisely this cassette.

05/12/2005 14h15 Bobigny - Cité Jean Grémillon

Three complete cassettes, next to a garbage bag. One is a commercially produced cassette by a (portuguese) group called 'Bandanorte', from 2002, edited by a company named 'Mundial'. Of the second one, the A side contains a set of - what seem to be home produced and home recorded - 'party' tracks (in the montage you hear the unknown artist perform Rocco Granata's classic 'Marina'). Also on the B side there's 'party' music, songs sung in italian, spanish and/or portugese(?), though not 'home produced'; or so it seems...
The third cassette contains a divers mix of pop and variety, starting with Toutes les femmes de ta vie et Reflexes from l'Album des Popstars, by L5, girls band that in 2001 won the french version of the 'reality' tv show Popstars (on channel M6)
