I have been listening this morning to microclips of songs by The Dead Milkmen on iTunes, debating whether or not I need to buy some of my old favorite songs like "Instant Club Hit (You'll Dance to Anything)," "Bitchin' Camaro," and "Stuart". I have all of these songs on tapes. From the 1980s. I also have my original tape of "Doolittle" by The Pixies. I eventually bought that on cd though.

Well, 1991 to be exact, when this sophomore boy who was on the yearbook staff with me (I was a senior) and I totally bonded over Pearl Jam and Nirvana, and he turned me on to The Dead Milkmen. I would drive my best friend (a huge Cure fan) and him home after yearbook (they both lived on the way,) and we would all be singing in the station wagon about burrow owls, thoughts like butterflies, lithium and fascination street.

I could have done without high school, but not without the music.
