U-Bahn to Kreuzberg (Start Again, Butterfly)
This mix is about a drug addict who falls for a prostitute.
Why It’s Pretentious: I promised super pretentious and here it is: This is an epic about a drug addict who picks up a hitchhiker on his way home, falls for her, and then finds out she’s a prostitute. Wanting to start a better life together, they try to get clean. He succeeds. She doesn’t. So even though he loves her, he can’t be with her. Named after a song by Bloc Party, it features a Smiths bootleg and a song by Jimmy Eat World that used to be a rarity but can now be found on iTunes. #displeased
Oh, and the story unfolds backwards. So.
