It was especially popular among high school students because it allowed them to exercise their thinking skills, though adults loved them, too.

Teenagers used to make mixtapes rather than buying them because they thought it was cool to put together a mix of interesting songs and put them on tape. It was not uncommon for you to make your own mixtape and then give it to your crush as a way of confessing.
