Music Meme

As requested at The Skull Cave, I did the following.

1. Go to www.popculturemadness.com
2. Pick the year you turned 18
3. Get yourself nostalgic over the song’s of the year


Boy did I have a hard time with this. Looking at the list form the Billboard Top 40, I am reminded of why I stopped listening to the radio back then and was a long haired freek (not a "hippie"* tho, they bug me) who listened to music that was 20-30 years old at the time. I have to say there were a few tunes out then (1992) that I thought were ok enough to comment on.

Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen. I took some flak for being a Queen fan, mostly from people who weren't familiar with them, and when this song was re-issued for Wayne's World, all of a sudden all the people who gave me a hard time about it were rushing out to buy it. Go figure. I hadn't heard the song in quite a while, and I had forgotten how much I actually liked it. There are a few other songs from "A Night at the Opera" I like better like , "I'm in love with my Car", or the Brian May penned Sci-Fi offering '39, but I'll stay on topic here. One of the best things about the re-issue of this song to me was the classic video was being played on TV.

Baby Got Back - Sir Mixx-A-Lott. This was one of the funniest things I had heard in a long time. There isn't too much I can add to that.

November Rain - Guns N Roses. Ok. not necessarily November Rain, but I was pretty into G'nR at the time. I remember the first time I heard this song, it was played on the radio the day after the albums came out, and pretty much fell flat. I liked it, and later that year when it came out as a single, I was not surprised. What did surprise me was the fact that it became one of the biggest songs of the year, thanks in part to MTV driving the video down our throats about 15 times a day. I was more of a 'Civil War' fan myself when it came to Use Your Illusions. One other thing, at this time I was really heavy into collecting vinyl ( I have about 350+ records representing about 2yrs of buying whenever I had money and time to kill) , and was super pumped to find both of these albums!

Give It Away - Red Hot Chili Peppers. I used to love the Peppers. I think this album was one of their last good ones tho. Their early stuff was pretty fun party tunes, and I have to say I think they pretty much suck now. There's some serious talent in the band, but in my opinion, i find their offerings pretty weak now.

One that wasn't on the list, that will always remind me of that time of my life when I hear it it Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun'. "Superunknown" was another one I found on vinyl (clear vinyl no less!) and it spent a fair amount of time on my turntable that year.

Looking back, it's pretty funny how my musical tastes have evolved, and I rarely listen to any of this anymore. If I had known about them some of the albums I would have enjoyed that year would have included Tom Waits- Bone Machine, Morphine- Cure for Pain, Dr. John- Goin' Back to New Orleans, but it was still a few years until I moved on from what I was listening to to this. I wish I had found Tom Waits sooner especially, as I have really enjoyed all eras of his music, but he was one of the things my wife introduced me to thank God. (and my wife)
Perhaps I need to do a Tom Waits post soon......

Thanks to the movie Flash Gordon I loved Queen though I really didn't hear alot of their other stuff until I was older. But Queen rocks hard, no one can even compare to Freddie Mercury especially not that duche the band got to go on tour with them a year or so ago.

And I actually enjoy November Rain, it's one of about 3 Guns and Roses songs I like. I think the epic quality of it is really cool. I always watch the video when it's on VH1 Classic.

The Chilli Peppers were great thru about Mother's Milk. Uplift Mofo Party Plan was like one of my favorite albums for a long time. I really can't listen to them anymore though. And the music they release today is just crap.

I wish I had discovered Tom Waits sooner too! I was so pleased when I heard the original version of Downtown Train about 6 years ago and have been hooked on the man ever since.

I'm glad you did this it was very cool to get know a little about you!
