I'm listening to this week's playlist for the second time through now, and it's astounding the memories it's bringing back. Like seeing Fountains of Wayne open for Smashing Pumpkins in Sioux Falls, SD thanks to a very generous friend who gave me a ticket. Or buying a sampler CD with Veruca Salt's Number One Blind on it from the music store in the Huron, SD mall back when music stores were still a thing.
People tend to find nostalgia in the music of their youth—I know I certainly do. We hold onto the exciting parts of our lives, the times when we've felt the most freedom. What a wonderful thing that so much emotion can be tied up in a song.
