Its really confusing to see y'all listening to soOOooooOoO much male musics. They should call that thread the "name 10 of your favorite penis musics"
Do you remember cool music to be just all male, or did you really prefer male music over female? (is there such thing as male vs female music?)
The most influential music I remember, i don't remember just for the music. I remember it because of what happened, or what it meant to me, back then. Some of it, I really identified with. Some songs have important memories tied in. Isn't music all about the experience of listening or playing and its connected memories?
Here are two very important, girl shaping memories for me...
I vividly remember the first CD I bought: Garbage. I bought Garbage because one of the cool, older ladies in my soccer team who was already allowed to go out, got it as a present from us for her birthday. I wanted to be like her so much. She had coloured hair and boyfriends. The Garbage CD was very expensive but for me it was a right of passage to buy that CD.
The second CD I bought was Jagged Little Pill - I bought it somewhere in England on a camping holiday with my parents that absolutely did not allow it for me to play it anywhere. Besides that, I would generally still listen to cassette tapes so it was kind of a weird choice to buy a CD, but this CD was cheaper than the cassette version cause a little edge had broken of the side of the CD (I can remember the shape of the chip like it was yesterday).
I loved that CD. Listening to that first song makes me think of brushing my teeth before biking to school in the morning. Every day. Cause if it was not the recording of last nights MTV after hours, I would blast that.
I still love the memories and feels these cds gave me..
that music embodied power I still feel when I am about to go travelling for another few months. Its like being a little rock star. Even today, not this music, but music in general makes me feel not alone and powerful and on the brink on a next new thing.
PS> This stuff is more than 20 yrs old. I just realised, Garbage && Jagged Little Pill are both 1995. I was barely 12 years old than. Thats when I bought my first CDs, its kind of cute to think of how influential the soccer ladies really were (I was an early, very enthusiast soccer player and very much the youngest). And I just started biking to highschool.
I am curious how much of my CD-DJ bookcase is male/female. But really, it was definitely not all male. And why did it just feel so hard to write about the ladies?
