I don't know if anyone besides me listens to the little music player on this blog's sidebar, so this post is probably mostly for my own benefit. Last week I went through and added a bunch of tracks from the late 90's; mostly rock/alternative songs that were popular on the radio when I was in high school. I think I added some Southern Rock as well.

This week I went even further into my past and added a bunch of country music from the late 80's/early 90's; mostly stuff that my dad had on CD and played frequently when I was younger. In 3rd and 4th grade I used to turn on my radio very quietly and stay up for several hours past my bedtime every night listening to the country music station. I think my favorite band at that time was Alabama, probably mostly because that was my best friend's favorite band. His favorite song was "Mountain Music," mine was "I'm In a Hurry," which was a pretty big hit at that time. I'd usually stay up until the radio station played that song and the end of the song would be my cue to turn off the radio and go to sleep.


  1. ...I like a bit of southern rock myself.. the first rock band I ever went to see was Lynyrd Skynyrd - this was before the plane crash so I'm guessing we're talking '75 or '76??

  2. Listening to country music would put me to sleep. Adam is determined to get me to like it, but that's like me getting him to speak finnish.

  3. well, i don't know if my last comment saved or not, so here i go again...

    hard to believe, but there was a time in my life that i actually "got into" country music. i enjoyed a variety of country songs and even made a mix cd (back when burning cds was a new thing) and "i'm in a hurry" by Alabama is one of the songs on that cd. it's good....
