Music and memories from the 90’s. Ah, friends. In looking for tunes to share with you from the late 90’s, I realize that I was probably the opposite of an early adopter when it comes to the music world. I distinctly remember listening to Metallica’s Master of Puppets a lot from 1995 to 1999. I looked it up to find out when it was released. 1986. I wasn’t cool enough in 1986 to listen to it. Which certainly doesn’t mean that it wasn’t cool in 1997. Or now. Because I still love it. So it counts as 90’s music in my book of memories.
Overall, the second half of the 90’s was perhaps a bit more mellow than the first for me. Parties often took place more responsibly. You know, in people’s homes. So we could take turns drinking too much and then act as model citizens by passing out on the floor rather than driving home like asses.
We may have been listening to this:
OMG I still love that song. Turns out, I still know every single word and that it’s completely impossible for me to hear “I ask no one!” and not sing it loud, sing it rough, bang my head, and fist pump the air. Guess it’s a good thing the blinds are closed (mental note – permanently close the blinds).
Know what else happened in the later 90’s? This shit:
That image kindof goes along with Sex & Candy, don’t ya think? “I smell sex and candy!”
Some of you may remember that I once shared a story in which I was lucky to survive with my kidneys, my fingers, and my dignity life while taking a horseback ride through the jungle in Mexico. We had stopped at a “local bar,” which was actually a thatched roof, a couple of locals, some sawed off palm trees as barstools and a bottle of rum that, instead of rum, contained homemade tequila. To refresh your memory, this is what I looked like on the way down the mountain:
“Why is she bringing this up?” you ask? Because I found actual photos! And it happened in the 90’s! Duh.
Tell me friends. What did you do in the 90’s?
This is a Hookin’ it up post with my favorite DJ Jenny Jen over at My Skewed View. She does this whole Twisted Mixed Tape Tuesday thing, well, every Tuesday. Plus, she knows way more about music than I do….check her out.
