i haven’t posted any ‘song of the moment’ lately, and truthfully, i don’t think anyone (but me) cares, but still… i’m gonna post it now. 😀
and actually, i’m not just gonna post one song of the moment, but a whole playlist of the moment. the 8tracks playlist was made with the help of my sister (aka kleinebeer), but i was the one who chose all the songs. for this playlist, i chose songs from my middle school years.
those were the years when we finally received broadcasts from MTV Southeast Asia. in other words, the first time we were video-musically updated, at the same time as the rest of the world. before that, we did have some local tv channels that would broadcast some music videos of western songs, but i think they weren’t as new.
well, anyhow, those were the first years when i became amazed at how visuals could make audio become more meaningful. those were the years when grunge was something new. those were the years when i finally found new fave bands that didn’t sing kids songs, LOL.
so here’s my middle school playlist, where you can listen to songs from Nirvana to Björk, from The Cranberries to Bed & Breakfast (i wonder what happened to them?), from Frente to All-4-One, from Radiohead to Take That. maybe you’ll find that some were also your personal faves when you were young(er), or maybe you’ll find new faves that you’ve never heard before (though they’re not technically new anymore). or maybe you’ll think it sucks.
but they were once important to me, and when i hear these songs even now, they can still bring me back to those good old days. 🙂
