Tune In Tuesday: July 3, 2012

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. And this? This is the best category EVER. My teen years.

I’ll say up front that not everything I listened to as a teen was current. Even as a teen I was the musical equivalent of Hipster Kitty. I listened to a lot of 80s new wave and the like. So just a disclaimer…I’m not as old as you might believe based on some of these selections. Ahem.


How Soon Is Now by The Smiths. One of my favorite bands everrrr:

Friday I’m In Love by The Cure.  There is nothing not awesome about The Cure.

Creep by Radiohead. Not my favorite song of theirs (that would be Paranoid Android) or from my favorite album (OK Computer) but awesome nonetheless.

Never Tear Us Apart by INXS. Still one of my favorite songs ever.

Heartbreak Beat by Psychedelic Furs. I can’t hear this song without thinking about John Hughes movies.

Valerie Loves Me by Material Issue. Love.

  1. Oh man, who doesn’t love Creep! Love the choices!

  2. This is pretty much made of awesome. Friday I’m In Love and Creep are two amazing songs!

  3. So now I’m wondering how old you are because I was totally listening to these songs well past their origin dates too, haha. Great choices. Love me some Cure & Radiohead.
