This is a mix I made for myself. I never got to experience the whole "going away to college and living in a dorm" thing. But for some reason, when I listen to these songs, I can imagine what it would have been like to have been sitting in a dorm room in the early 90's, listening to these songs as raindrops tap against the dorm room window.
It's a strange feeling...being nostalgic for something that I never got to experience. But there is a certain sort of comfort I get when I listen to these songs.

Interesting. I listened to a lot of these in my college apartment that year (although "It's About Time" didn't come out 'til that fall when I had already graduated). :-)
