It really seems like I’ve stopped listening to music. I went to an old school hip hop/ r&b jam the other day, and frighteningly I knew all the music. When I was 17, even 20 and going out and the old school set started I rarely knew any of the music. At this age now… old school is the music I was listening to 10-15 years ago. That said, here’s what is qualifying as old[er] school these days… music I didn’t even have on tape! 🙂
I started to listen to music fairly late in high school, barely paying much attention to it before this. This meant the Mariah Carrey I met was this Mariah…
Do you remember Next? I barely do.
I do believe this was the year I started watching BET. Yes, there was a time I watched BET. I swear I was studying it just so that I could follow conversations at school.
The dancehall I actually did have on a tape.
For the soca, like they didn’t have old school…
Random side note. Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu on the same track?
