Music, You're Still My BFF Part II
Yesterday I started a blog post detailing the music I've listened to and loved from birth until today.
I left off here:
1989-1991: Same as above, but now including: The Pixies (of course), EMF, Jane's Addiction, Ned's Atomic Dustbin (loved these guys!) Elvis Costello, Jesus and Mary Chain, Lightening Seeds, The Ocean Blue (these guys from PA are heavenly! At 16, I begged a LI bar/club-007 for entry to their 21 and over show. Even with my dad as an escort, they said no. I cried. If I was a sitcom character, I would have gotten fake ID), Front 242, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Lush, The Sugarcubes, Charlatans UK, Stone Roses, Nirvana, Screaming Trees, Nitzer Ebb and the list goes on and on and I still love these groups today!
1992-1994: Same as above, but now including some bands I forgot to add above such as: Beastie Boys, The Jam, The Sundays, Nine Inch Nails, Alice in Chains, Primus, Beck, Dinosaur Jr., Breeders, Helmet, Smashing Pumpkins, Teenage Fanclub, Porno for Pyros, The Specials, Fugazi, Blur - can't believe I forgot my most beloved band ever!
Around this time I was really into techno and raving. I never really collected much of that music though and I only listened to it at the clubs or when we visited our friend Joey's garage. He'd spin records for us while we smoked and hung out.
1995-1996: Same as above, but now include Weezer, Superchunk, Oasis, Chemical Brothers, Hum, Hole and so many I'm sure I'm forgetting.
1997-1998 Same as above, but now include Quicksand, Bush, Cranberries, The Crystal Method, Filter, Fatboy Slim, The Who (random right?) Chemical Brothers, Ben Folds Five, Beth Orton, Moby and so many I'm sure I'm forgetting.
1999-2000: Ah, 2000, the year I finally got my own place! OK, same as above, but now include: Pulp, Ash, Supergrass, The Faint, Dandy Warhols, Thursday, Jimmy Eat World, The Anniversary, Graham Coxon, Ian Brown and so many I'm sure I'm forgetting.
2001-2002: I met my husband around this time so some of these bands were his influence... Still loved all of the bands you see above now add on: The Strokes, Go Sailor, Dressy Bessy, The Muffs, Ben Lee, Idlewild, Sparta, Saves The Day, Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, Sunny Day Real Estate, Elliott Smith, Hey Mercedes, Belle & Sebastian, Death Cab For Cutie, The Dismemberment Plan and so many I'm sure I'm forgetting.
2003-2004: Same as above, but now include The Shins and I can't think of any others :(
2005 - 2010: Same as above, but now include Peter Bjorn & John, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, The Weepies and I can't think of anymore.
