Tonight's Musical Interlude: 120 Minutes
Tonight is dedicated to "120 Minutes" and the days when MTV was edgy and wonderful...and relevant.
I used to tape it each week and I think the VHS cassettes are still in my dad's basement. Oh, man. I really hope so.
Jane's Addiction, "Mountain Song"
I'm still pissed my mom wouldn't let me go to their concert when they played Aksarben in 1991.
Peter Murphy, "Cuts You Up"
This takes me right back to the afternoon with my friend Talonia as we drove around Benson in Omaha. This was playing on the boombox she held on her lap. It's late Winter, the sun is shining, the snow is melting.
The Smiths, "How Soon Is Now?"
The Smiths are the perfect band for angst-ridden teenage girls.
And angst-ridden thirty-something women too, I guess.
