As of late my Sirius radio has been stuck on the rock/alternative station Lithium 24. Once in a while I love to just listen to the stuff I rocked out to while a teenager.
Today I checked out the friendly AddictedToVinyl.com and there it was… the perfect mix tape. Apparently I am not the only one who has been thinking about the past. Head on over to his site for a link to download for a sweet 90’s mix. It will not disappoint.
After checking out the mix I starting thinking of things that remind me of the 90’s. Mainly things that helped shape me into what I was becoming…a music lover. Not only did I think of music but also concerts I went to and places I hung out. I also thought about the movies as a youth I saw and then watched over and over again memorizing the lines and the way the people acted.
This movie was something that contributed:
It took me a couple of years to actually follow the story line and see it was a love story but when I first saw it my jaw dropped at the musicians who played roles in the movie or performed songs. I was young when it came out. All I remember is that I wanted to move to Seattle, buy thermo long johns and a pair of combat boots. I wanted to be like the guys in Singles.
The thought of being a grunged out coffee making Seattle-ite soon changed those as I was introduced to other music and found my click…mainly punk rock. I was growing up you know…change happened a lot. I altered my look more than once in high school and went from a grungy long haired (bright red) to shaving my head senior year wearing NoFX shirts. I might have gone punk rock, but I still listened to the rock/alt.
I still like the 90’s rock and always will… I also like Matt Dillon movies….well mainly There’s Something About Mary…(hey, that was 90’s too!!!)
