The songs that make me happiest are ones that take me straight back to being 13 years old. That's the age I was when I figured out that there was more to music than what was being played on the average radio station (107.3 KKRD... anyone?! The Hitman!!! The Goodnight Line?!?).
That's the age when I came to school Monday mornings haggard and hollow-eyed because I just HAD to stay up until 4 a.m. to watch 120 Minutes on MTV every week. I can't think of anything I'm that devoted to these days.
Here are a few songs that I still love with all my almost 30 year old heart:
Matthew Sweet - Sick of Myself
Hole - Violet
Live - All Over You
Radiohead - High and Dry
Blur - The Universal
Sponge - Molly (Sixteen Candles)
Weezer - Say It Ain't So
