I shared some songs yesterday in my Daybook entry that bring back memories of middle and high school. Here are some more…
“Strong Enough” by Sheryl Crow. Given my struggles with anxiety and depression for the last ~25 years, this is a favorite of mine.
“As I Lay Me Down to Sleep” by Sophie B. Hawkins. This brings back memories of watching MTV and VH1 after school during my sophomore year of high school.
“One of Us” by Joan Osborne. Apparently, the Catholic Church hated this one. I liked it because I thought it asked a good question.
“Tubthumping” by Chumbawumba. I remember being at a party with my friend Sara when I was visiting UCSC where people were literally taking a whiskey drink, a vodka drink, a lager drink, and a cider drink while listening to this song. Being the good little 17 year old I was, I was sipping my Coke and watching amusedly.
“Dreams” by The Cranberries. My hairdresser was actually the one who introduced me to them. One of her other clients liked them.
“Two Princes” by Spin Doctors. They were playing this on the dinner cruise that I was on when I went to DC in 8th grade. Jon and I worked out the table grace to this tune 10 years later.
“Zombie” by the Cranberries. This song has a special place in my heart because I’ve been to Belfast and Northern Ireland.
