One could argue that a person’s musical taste develops over the course of three acts: junior high, high school and college. I started sixth grade in 1982 and graduated from high school in 1989. A lot happened in there with music and pop culture, but the biggest influence on all of us Gen Xers can be wrapped up in three letters: MTV.
What we listened to, what we wore (or wanted to wear), how we danced… so much of it came from the music videos on MTV, which was so much fun back then. It was brand new, and such a blast watching artists figure out this new music video thing.
Anyway, this week’s playlist is a tiny sampling of music that takes me right back to those days. And when I say tiny, I mean tiny. This is defininely a “Vol. 1” of many more to come.
Have a great week, do good work and please get vaccinated.
