I’m gonna continue what I did in 1998, and post 10 songs form 1999. But for my first entry of the year I’m gonna be a bit lazy and rehash an old article I wrote. It only had 9 songs, so I added the Jimmy Eat World song/video to make it 10 songs.
“New” by No Doubt
“What’s My Age Again?” by Blink-182
“Learn to Fly” by Foo Fighters
“When I Grow Up” by Garbage
There are 2 versions of this music video. I like the Big Daddy version better. The live version is on their music videos compilation DVD.
“Bodyrock” by Moby
“Why Don’t You Get a Job?” by The Offspring
“It’s All About the Pentiums” by Weird Al Yankovic
“Take a Picture” by Filter
“Army” by Ben Folds Five
“Lucky Denver Mint” by Jimmy Eat World
The one the band uploaded to youtube is the Never Been Kissed version there is also one that is just of the band. It’s at 144. 😦 I felt the song described me transitioning into my freshman year of high school. Especially these lyrics.
“You’re not bigger than this, not better
Why can’t you learn?”
That all those strange loopholes in high school like all those stupid GPA thresholds. Like that only 3.5 or higher was acceptable. All my teachers on my ass for “bad” grades. Fitting I would be unknowingly into emo music at 15.
