I am a music junkie. There is no way around it.
I love many genres. Even some of the crazy 80′s country my mother made me listen to in our station wagon as a child.
Music takes me back to times in my life. I can almost re-live them. In detail.
So you know I am driving this Chevy Traverse for 2 weeks. One thing I love about this car (and I loved in the Malibu) is XM Radio. There is a station that plays music just for kids, a doctor/medical station, and then there are stations that play just Elvis music, or all 90′s music.
Yes, I said all 90′s music.
Um, I may listen to 90′s on 9 often.
Here is a taste of what they played the other morning when I was out running kids to school.
I was jammin’.
Yes, I said jammin’.What is Love- oh my goodness gracious. The year is 1993- do you remember Haddaway? I was a freshman in
hike high school. Could not wait until the day I could drive a car. All by myself.
All 4 Love- do you remember Color Me Badd? I always liked that they spelled their name with two b’s. I think I was in middle school… By the way, where are they now?
Whats My Age Again?- Blink 182!! I dream of being a drummer every time I hear their music. It was late 90′s when this song came out- I was technically an adult, but I could listen to Blink until I am 50. Maybe 80?
She’s My Cherry Pie- this one is from the early 90′s. Remember Warrant? Or was it Poison? Hair bands- oh my.
Dangerous- by Roxette. Oh my goodness- this is a song that defines the early 90′s. A time when MTV and VH1 really played music videos. I may have choreographed my very own dance to this song in my bedroom. Maybe. I would hot roll my hair, put on my stone washed jeans, and… ok I’ll stop there. Hold on tight you know she’s a little bit dangerous, she’s got what it takes to make ends meet….
Total Eclipse of the Heart- yes, this song existed before Glee. Love her voice. I always thought this sounds like a song Meatloaf would sing. You agree?
500 Miles- remember this? The movie was… Benny and June? Right? I was going into my sophomore year in high school. Dating my high school sweetheart. You know high school sweethearts are really just fairy tale dreams, right?
Closer to Free- hello, the Party of 5 theme song. Oh my heavens, Scott Wolf. Was he not the cutest dimple smiling hunk in the mid 90′s. Where is he now? Music to live by. In the mid 90′s all I could focus on was growing up too fast. I wish I could go back and talk to my 17 year old self. You too?
3 AM- Matchbox 20. Wow, this brings back some memories. Late 90′s. I was not a mother yet. Had a great job and focused entirely too much on what life would be like when I was 30. Needless to say, we’re divorced now. Man, this album could bring back a million memories. I should have listened to the lyrics…
Closing Time- I have always loved this song. I hear it is a common song played these days at local bars at 2 am. Late 90′s. I have a 5 speed Ford Probe. It was Maroon. Do you remember the Ford Probe? I thought I was way cool.
