stuff i listened to in high school

it started as an idea after doing the road trip cds because i threw some stuff on there that i hadn’t really listened to in years.  erin and i started talking about stuff we listened to in high school, so i decided to make high school mix cds.  if you’re interested in my somewhat more formative music years*, follow the link.

* i consider my formative music years to be earlier, in, like 6th and 7th grade, when i was into such wildly diverse music like boyz ii men, paula abdul, michael jackson, prince, pink floyd, the doors, poison, and kiss.

  1. Hahaha.. oh, the memories!

    I actually still have the first mix tapes you ever made for me. I held onto them for so long because when I used to still have my car it only played tape cassettes and i didn't have an mp3 player yet. Jackie and I spent many a joy rides screaming "El Camino! El Camino! En Espanol it meeeeeaaans… the road!"

    Awesome.
