Day 267 – September 24 Old Stuff

Today I took it upon myself to clean out a cabinet/shelves in my home office.  It started out as a rainy day and seemed like a good idea at the time.  Actually, it worked out well as I disposed of a fair amount of junk and made some space for things cluttering my desk.  For some crazy reason I had an old cassette stowed away in there.  I can’t even recall the last time I actually played a cassette!  I laughed when I saw that it was from 1991.  Yes, 20 years ago!  Wow, that makes me feel old saying that.  I was a sophmore in high school at the time and the only way for us to capture songs we loved without buying the full album was to tape them from the radio.  And I did.  Here ya go…. a classic.  🙂

    Oh Buddy the songs that would be on that priceless artifact!
    and Yes I to remember taping songs off the radio, hoping the DJ didn’t start talking over the song!

    Great picture! Now you have to tell us what was on there. What were you listening to back then? Do you have a friend with an older car that still has a tape deck in it?

    Well, what was on it? Vanilla Ice? Bon Jovi followed by Bryan Adams?!?! Oh don’t tell me… MC Hammer… get out those baggy pants!!!

    3. ” I don’t have the Heart” by James Ingram (really?)
    4. “Miles Away” by Winger (no idea who this is, but not a horrible song)
    5. no idea…. chorus had “I’ll be your romeo….can’t let go….”
    6. “Because I love you” by Stevie B ( I actually remembered this song)
    7. “Everybody dance now!” by C&C Music Factory (CLASSIC!)
    8. “You’re In Love” by Wilson Phillips (which is funny because I can’t stand them)
