My 21-year old self would kick my 31-year old self's ass.

this weekend, when i was sifting through a bunch of crap, i found a mixed tape i had made myself for cruising around in my 1988 ford bronco II. okay, it may have perhaps been a tape that i made myself to survive driving to work in Hartford (when i was an intern) on 3 hours sleep.

but. i thought it'd be fun to share with you my 21-year old sj's playlist. (i should mention that some of these are *still* current favorites.)

"Are You Out There" by Dar Williams
"Laid" by James
"Hard" by Grey-eye Glances
"As Cool As I Am" by Dar Williams
"Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" by Emmylou Harris
"Power of Two" by the Indigo Girls
"Feelin' Love" by Paula Cole
"You and Me" by Vonda Shepherd
"Independent Love Song" by Scarlett
"Just Like Heaven" by the Cure
"Letter to Elise" by the Cure
"Nervous Heart" by the Borrowers
"Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star
"Insensitive" by Jann Arden
"You're Aging Well" by Dar Williams and Joan Baez
"Sweet Jane" by the Cowboy Junkies
"Life is Sweet" by Natalie Merchant

and though you've probably seen this before... let's just remember that while my music taste was awesome. i may have made some bad decisions about my look.

Laid by James...LOL...had to laugh about that one because I didn't even know that song existed until I bought the DVD American Pie and heard it on the soundtrack. And I love Vonda Shepard, thanks to Ally McBeal. But I have to admit, there are quite a few on that list that I've never heard of before.

I have to tell you I have never heard a single one of those songs, so I was obviously not cool and trendy 10 years ago, but now I am just fabulous!

YES. I'm loving the hair style. For what it's worth, I had far too many of those sparkly hair pins myself.

I use to be obsessed with Mazzy Star.

Burg said...

I've only heard of a few of those songs. I'm so lame.

Mommy said...

OMG - bought the James CD with Laid on it TWICE, because I am a knucklehead.

Yes, still have both copies.
