As I sit here coding late into the night (and getting shit done!), I must credit the mix I'm listening to on the iPod. Behold, 1995!
  • 311, All Mixed Up
  • Rusted Root, Send Me on My Way
  • Alanis, All I Really Want
  • Bjork, Army of Me
  • Filter, Hey Man, Nice Shot
  • The Offspring, Come Out and Play
  • Foo Fighters, This Is A Call
  • Poe, Trigger Happy Jack
  • Garbage, Only Happy When It Rains
  • KMFDM, Juke Joint Jezebel
  • Lisa Loeb, Taffy
  • Radiohead, Fake Plastic Trees
  • The Rentals, Friends of P
  • The Toadies, Possum Kingdom
  • Smashing Pumpkins, Bullet With Butterfly Wings
  • Toad The Wet Sprocket, All In All
  • No Doubt, Don't Speak
  • Jill Sobule, I Kissed A Girl
  • Matthew Sweet, Sick of Myself
  • Jewel, Angel Standing By

Fuck... what happened to all of that variety in music? That's a lot of very different stuff from a particular year. Recent years' mixes are not nearly that diverse.

Amazing, I actually recognize some of those from our collection: Offspring, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Toad the wet Sprocket (and that is my fave), No Doubt. I need Ian and Gordon to drag me out of the 60's and 70's (and early 80's). Although... Ian recorded a good portion of "my" CD's from the 60's and 70's to take with him to college, so my musical tastes can't be all that bad.

Rusted Root, one of the few bands from Pittsburgh to even semi-make it. Great live show, although I could personally do without the trippy "We want to be the Grateful Dead and/or Phish, look at us get high..." attitude of the fanbase they drew.

Oops, did I just say that out loud? ;)

I'm still waiting to hear a good Phish song. No wonder people need to get high to listen to them.

Wow, 1995 was a good year!
