heavy baby

you know when you're jammin' in the car and all of a sudden a song comes on from your past and it makes you feel really, really deep? ie: beatnik-poet-deep? and then you realize that the reason you feel so deep is that this song made you feel deep when you were like, ummmm 12 years old? so then you're like, "well shit. now i'm not deep at all. i'm a 7th grader in a flannel button-down who thinks she's totally grunge."


yeah... i hate it when that happens.

  1. i feel like i wish that made me feel deep. sigh. instead, i was a seventh-grader who jammed to mariah carey (!), salt-n-papa (awesome.), celine dion (!!!!), and george strait (!)...

    how did my little preppy-country-wanna-be-hip-hop-yet-nerdy group miss the grunge 90s that everyone else enjoyed?!?!

  3. Just be glad you EVER felt deep at 12. That's pretty precocious. I'm only just now feeling deep in my 50's. Hmm. That's not true. I think I felt deep once in 1987.

  4. So I feel that way about Jeff Buckley's Last GoodBye I listened to that in High School and College and seriously everytime I listened to that song my boyfriend and i would break up within a week. I'm not joking it happened 4x (4 different guys...no judging), so I stopped listening to him all together for some time. But that CD is still fabulous...

  5. I used to wear perfume from The Gap in middle school and all of a sudden, the scent is back. I sprayed it onto a sample card and sniffed it all day- I could have sworn I was right there opening my locker again! So weird how songs and smells and other randoms totally take you back!

  8. OMG. I cannot believe I am admitting this in public, but there is some Amy Grant song that does that to me. For whatever reason my 13 year old brain processed the song as something deep & prophetic and to this day when I hear this song (which is rare seeing as how I have no Amy Grant in my possession) I get the same feeling. Weird.
