Normally, we’re writing and talking about TV, movies, toys, and collectibles, but this week, the League’s assignment is going to have some of us treading in unfamiliar waters: Music.
What songs were forever being looped on your car’s stereo back in high school. A cassette could only hold a dozen or so songs, so that’s the magic number of songs to list. If your car didn’t have a cassette deck in high school, go ahead and pretend it did, you punk.
Oh baby! I was a mixtape freak in my high school years. Way back when in the last years of the millennium before i-tunes, napster, and youtube when you actually had to buy the original pieces of work on disk, record or tape to dub on a physical cassette. Jesus, what a pain in the ass! But it was all worth it to cruise down the open road on a full tank of gas at less than 20 bucks and just blast the freshest tunes you could muster! The Gallery of Sound Record store definitely walked away with a ton of my disposable income back then.
Anyway, here is what you would hear from some of my better tracks on my usually disjointed and all-over-the-place musical tastes.
