Music Share Playlist

Kris Feller, ECA’s supremely fino cambur librarian, has for the last couple years organized a music share group. Every teacher who signs up  is responsible for sharing a 10-20 song playlist.  It’s a great way to get to know your fellow teachers in a different capacity. This week I’m up with the first playlist.Here’s the story behind my playlist.

Back when 1995 was becoming 1996 I was in 8th grade and used to listen a lot to this alternative-music radio station called 107.7 The End (KNDD). At the end of every year they would count down the top 107 songs based on volume of listener requests. I remember laying in bed and listening to the countdown and there being this one song that had lyrics about a girl and concrete. There is obviously more to the song than that but that’s all I remember at this point. I’ve been thinking about that song off and on for almost 20 years now and until this year I hadn’t really ever put any serious time in to trying to figure out what song it is.

A few months ago I found a website called www.rocklists.com. On that site they have the year-end countdown for KNDD all the way back to 1996. I was really excited, thinking I had found my answer, and I diligently listened to hours worth of music. None of them were it — because, duh, I needed the 1995 list. (Damn arithmetic.) Unfortunately the website doesn’t go back that far — and the downside is that I still don’t know what that one song is. The upside is that I was reminded of a whole load of songs that I hadn’t heard in at least 15 years.

Thus, the name of the playlist: Lost and Found (Except that one song). This link takes you to the Grooveshark playlist.

Enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing. I was in need of some “new” music.
