Week 6 – Return to basic….sssss! Welcome to my weekly music feature! I already have a monthly playlist on the go to share what I’m jamming to on a monthly basis. But it’s WASN’T ENOUGH. Music is such a huge part of my life that I felt I needed to share more.
For those of you that aren’t aware of the #TBT situation – we’re talking throwback Thursday. We’re taking it way back. At least 10 years old. ( At the time of this post, we’re talking no newer than 2006!)
Which by the way, freaks me right out. In 2006, I was graduating grade 11, working in Edmonton over the summer, and started grade 12. For some of you, I’m sure you’re chuckling, but I can only say how what I am experiencing.
For each year I feature as a throwback, I will feature the same amount of tracks as my age that year. That being said, some years I will need to double my age (ie. 1995 I was six, and I don’t think it’s fair to only feature six tracks!)
Away we go!
This week –
Let’s throw it WAY back to 1996.
I was 7. This was the year I started paying attention and started choosing my own music. Prior to this, I listened to basically whatever my mom did. I was in the second grade and enjoyed art (painting, drawing, etc.), writing stories and writing cursive. I was in a grade 2/3 split class, which was a big deal as my school only went up to the third grade.
After last weeks (2005) 48 track extravaganza, I had to make sure the next few weeks stayed true to my age (or at most double.)
The playlist – 1996
- California Love – Tupac
- Pony – Ginuwine
- Get Me Home – Foxy Brown
- Fu-Gee-La – Fugees
- Don’t Speak – No Doubt
- Love Fool – The Cardigans
- Virtual Insanity – Jamiroquai
Hope you enjoyed this week! Next week we’ll hop on the 1998 train!
