Track 4 from Voulez-Vous
Length: 00:04:18
Year: 1979
Track Description:
The only music provided in our house was piped in by my two older sisters. My father often reflects and asks, "Do we still have that Fiddler on the Roof record?", but music was never a big thing for my parents. Luckily, I guess, I had two sisters that were on their high school drill team. I have foggy memories of the Voulez-Vous cover. This song transports me to the back seat of a '79 Cadi. Still sounds great.

Track 6 from In the Heat of the Night
Length: 00:03:55
Year: 1979
Track Description:
This song takes me to the basement of the third house I lived in, playing Moon Patrol on the Atari. (art) My oldest sister had made a tape of her favorite Benatar songs from her LPs. I "borrowed" this tape and played it on our Sony tape recorder, you know, the one with the orange thing that would stick out of the fat play button for recording? That machine played a key part in my childhood. {i wonder if the atari still works}

Track Description:
This is from one of my three favorite films, growing up. My sisters did a routine to the theme song for a school pep rally, and I got the tape afterwards. Yes!

Track 7 from The Dark Crystal
Length: 00:03:19
Year: 1982
Track Description:
My favorite film from my childhood, and, okay, this was on vinyl, but you couldn't get this on tape. I checked this soundtrack out from the library, didn't listen to it, and apparently, left it in direct sunlight. The library called and said my folks had to pay for the LP. Shucks. Now, the disc has a cool warp in it that makes it sound like footsteps during the begining song. "The Pod Dance" makes me happy every time I hear it.

Track 8 from Thriller
Length: 00:03:58
Year: 1982
Track Description:
Thriller was the first cassette that I can recall purchasing at the store on my own. Nice guest vocals by The Chipmunks. The irony of the lyics here doesn't tarnish my love for this tape. Remember my Sony tape recorder? There was a one week at school, where I took my Thriller tape and the tape recorder, and my friends and I listened to Thriller over and over during recess. I remember a heated conversation with a little girl over the fact that Vincent Price says "h. e. double hockey sticks" and how controversial that was in our universe. Good times.

Track 12 from "Weird Al" Yankovic
Length: 00:01:54
Year: 1983
Track Description:
This was the first song, outside of Primary songs, that I memorized. I wore my Weird Al geek love, with pride, on my sleeve. I remember writing his name on my red backpack in junior high. Devotion. I knew he was an outider, and I sure felt like one. I felt like I was "in on the joke" listening to his tapes.

Track 5 from Hyaena
Length: 00:04:06
Year: 1984
Track Description:
I found this song by recording a radio program one night. I would rewind and play this song over and over. Weird lyrics. I like weird lyrics. It had marrow, and I kept chewing on it. Excellent song. This would set a devotion to S&tB that wouldn't fully form until 1997.

Track 3 from The Dream Of The Blue Turtles
Length: 00:03:58
Year: 0000
Track Description:
I borrowed this tape from my soon-to-be brother-in-law. I was struck with the notion that songs could really be about something. Funny to think that my devotion to Sting ended about the same time as my devotion to Siouxsie Sioux started. End of side A. I would probably turn the recorder on and babble until the side was filled.

begin Side B - My calling card. My good friends knew this was my favorite song. I loved trying to figure out the drum part(s) to this song. How could one person play all the percussion at one time? Love.

Track 12 from And In This Corner...
Length: 00:05:43
Year: 1989
Track Description:
My fascination with turntables started with "Rockit" at the Grammys (I know, I've seen Scratch a hundred times), but this song held my attention. This song gave me a reference point for when I'd hear DJ Shadow in college. C'mon, this was a great tape!

Year: 1990
Track Description:
Another song with marrow. So much better than the original. I hope to be buried, along with a few other choice tracks, with this song and track 10. I wore this tape out repeating the fourth cut on Side 2.

Track 2 from Stick Around for Joy
Length: 00:03:56
Year: 1992
Track Description:
This was one of my all-time favorite cassette singles. Because of this single, I would love and defend Bjork for six years. I purchased every Sugarcubes disc I could find. I even bought that goofy K.U.K.L. disc and EVERY Bjork single I ever found. The internet could have saved me some dough with quality research on all those purchases, but oh well.

Track 6 from The Utopian Experience

Year: 1991
Track Description:
HOW HAS P.M. DAWN NOT BEEN ADDED 'TIL NOW!? I'm typing this looking at my date single. The "(Youth Radio Mix)" of this was the second song with "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss (Radio Mix)". I can't find either mix, so the album version of the song is here. This song takes me back on my first date. I didn't know how things would go, or know what to do, but I knew the music was going to be killer for my date with Serie. My great soundtrack to an awkward night.
