90s Nostalgia: 1990/1991

90s Nostalgia: 1990/1991

After spending this morning enjoying some Bobby Brown (none of us are perfect) it lubed up a slippery slope into 90s pop. Although I was born in 1981 and fondly remember many 80s hits, the era of my youth was the 90s. At the time I found it hard to believe anyone could look back on the decade with nostalgia because the music, the films, the fashion all seemed ‘normal’. We didn’t seem to┬áhave anything weird that would stand out to future generations as decade-defining.

I Got 5 On It

I Got 5 On It

The past day or so I’ve been listening to a bunch of music I liked in my youth. Although I listened to a lot of pop and the odd gothic band, I was also known as a bit of of weirdo at my (all girl, christian, grammar) school for liking some rap. Sometimes I tuned in to the Radio 1 rap show with Tim Westwood before he was ever pimping cars. Sure I wasn’t from any ‘hood and knew nothing about the proper scene but there are still a bunch of tunes that went pretty mainstream and I still, very occasionally, like listening to today.

Two Can Keep A Secret If One Of Them Is Dead

Two Can Keep A Secret If One Of Them Is Dead

I love Shazam. At least I love the Shazam app. I’ve waved my phone around in the air numerous times in clubs, shops and by the tv to find out what song is playing. It’s magic, no idea how it works but it helps me discover “new” music that might have passed my life by. Today (technically yesterday now I guess) I went on a mini spending spree with an Amazon voucher left over from Christmas.

30 Day Song Challenge pt1

There’s something a few friends have been taking part in on Facebook where you post up a song a day that has personal meaning to you based on a theme. It’s kinda cool although I don’t know half of the song they’re posting. I thought I’d do it myself just not over 30 days. Mostly cos I’m hardcore but also because I’m stuck inside for most of today with a snotty child and a little bored.
