iPod shuffle - the college years

The Time:
Fall '94 through Spring '99, referred to affectionately as the college years.

The place:
Seattle - primarily the dance department of the University of Washington, the windowless records room of a law firm, and a dingy basement apartment on the west side.

The girl:
Yours truly, a dangerously shy overachiever with a firm ass proudly perched atop dancer's legs.

Her iPod:
The 5-disc shuffle. And, yes, a discman.

A likely shuffle:
1. Strange Currencies - REM
2. San Andreas Fault - Natalie Merchant
3. I Think I'm Paranoid - Garbage
4. Music Box - Philip Glass
5. Shadowboxer - Fiona Apple
6. The Unforgiven - Apocalyptica
7. Innocent When You Dream - Tom Waits
8. Purple Haze - Kronos Quartet
9. Devil's Haircut - Beck
10. You Mama You - Jude
11. It's Oh So Quiet - Bjork


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


Notes: the Philip Glass piece is not chronologically accurate, but my playlist.com options are limited. Also, a Goodness song should really be here to make this a truly representative playlist, but playlist.com has never heard of them. Blip.fm has - you should check them out for the full Martini Mom college experience. Finally, in the interest of full disclosure, Madonna was still allowed in my house during the college years, and I guiltily adored that Ray of Light album. I had it on the playlist initially but, ew, who wants to remember that? Also, it was making The Man's ears bleed.

Enjoy, my lovelies. Or grimace at the memories along with me.

Cool.

I think I missed some of these... they were not my college years; they were my "blur" years with two toddlers and 60-hour corporate work weeks. Um... Come to think of it, I suspect I lost the better part of the decade.

Feel free to expand the range of years, for all the tunes that some of us missed...
