Revisiting your old tunes. ITT: Nostalgia

So last night High Fidelity was on TV. Cusack was rearranging his records autobiographically, based off of when he bought them and all. He said he could explain how he got from Deep Purple to something else in 25 moods. I always loved that line in the movie (despite me not being able to recite it all)

So I was cleaning out some old closets today just to make storage space and get rid of some junk. Found a bag of about 100 CDs from middle school and high school. I had taken them out of my big case years ago for some reason. But I haven't touched these things in years.

Some albums I haven't listened to since 1998-ish, some I probably last listened to around 2003 (though those are few, compared to the many I haven't heard in at least 7 years.)



So wow. Scrolling through I find...
    - All the Nirvana Albums
    - All the Sublime Albums
    - Some mid 90s Beastie Boys
    - Shit ton of Blink 182
    - Weezer, from Blue to Green.
    - Few albums by the Ataris
    - Handful of albums by Less than Jake (Johnny Quest thinks we're what!?)
    - Lots of unpopular pop punk bands' CDs. Though some of the bands like Brand New got famous later on.
    - Lots of Tool albums
    - Old Incubus
    - Old Pearl Jam
    - Limp Bizkit CDs
    - Slipknot CDs
    - Mudvayne
    - 311
    - A ... PC Gameshark disc? What the hell?
    - Two Orgy CDs
    - Lots of old Red Hot Chili Peppers
    - Lots of old Metallica.
    - Then a ton of old mix CDs, I was one of the first guys at my school to ever get a CD burner, back around 1999 ish. Those CDs are likely filled with music from my Napster days.


Every single one albums I can listen to and remember exactly what was going on when I was listening to it a lot. I remember who I was hanging out with at the, round about what grade I was in, and in a lot of cases, whatever girl I was dating or liked at the time.

When I was listening to a lot of Weezer's Pinkerton and Blink 182's Enema, I was constantly thinking about Aprile McGilvray (whom I haven't seen since like 2003 now, she was beautiful though) I remember being like 13 years old and just being a stupid fucking 13 year old that constantly thought about girls and I was listening to those albums at the time.

So break out your old records and reminisce.

    I still have a RealMcCoy album. I can't bring myself to listen to it.

    Then again, I did listen to the Shai album I found at a flea market twice, so I don't know what's stopping me.

    Summer of 2004 it was a regular occurrence that on myself and my friends' almost nightly trip to Taco Bell that we'd play that song with the windows down and sing every word as loud as we could.

    Summer of 2004 was fan-fucking-tastic.

    Yeah, that first album with Blue Monday on it, and then they had another (and probably more)

    I forgot what it was called, but that next album was really good. I haven't gotten around to re-listening to it yet though.

    I remember the summer of Limp Bizkit's Nookie, Kid Rock's Bawitdaba, and J-Lo's breakout song. That was probably around 1998-9 ish, if I had to guess.

    Considering I grew up on Christian "rock", I really don't have any desire to listen to that stuff again and long ago destroyed any traces of such music I had.

    When I really got into music we had already gotten things like Napster.

    When my friend told me about Napster, the first thing we thought was, "Awesome we can download the Bum Bum Song!" Since you obviously couldn't find it in stores at the time.

    '99. Also featuring Dr. Dre's decade-long follow-up to "The Chronic," titled "2001," the founding of Broken Social Scene, Enon and the Strokes, the death of Mark Sandman, and the disbanding of both Pavement and The Jesus Lizard.

    5th grade, before me and my best friend could afford to regularly buy CDs, we'd sit by the radio all night with old blank cassette tapes so we could record songs we liked.

    This was one of those songs we tried for a lot.

    That and Jewel's - You were Meant for Me, and Who will save your soul?

    Jewel's Pieces of You was the 2nd album I ever bought, I still love that album. It's wonderful.

    I was just talking about how Jewel's Pieces of You was the 2nd album I ever bought.

    Tragic Kingdom was the first album I ever bought. We only had a CD player in the living room, I sat in the living room forever listening to that.

    I'm happy to say that I have never bought an album that I later regretted purchasing. My first album purchase was Harvey Danger's "Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?" when most of my friends were buying Limp Bizkit. I saw through that shit.

    The first album I actually picked out myself (I didn't buy it with my own money) was a double-CD Beatles collection (the blue one). I was like 9 or 10.
