Just a continuation of the first set of high school songs... though you can see with the latter 2 years (excluding the first 2 from junior high), my tastes were changing, & yearning for the not-so-overplayed-top-40. Thanks to a local radio station that had a fabulous "New Music Zone" every night from 7-10 pm, I was introduced to a good wide variety of different bands (present & 80's) that weren't so popular, & I was very grateful. Then that station went waaaay downhill after I graduated, & only plays the mindless/kiddie top 40 that you hear now... but at least SOMEONE at that station (in Houston, *COUGH*) had a great idea to widen people's musical horizons!! Sooo, here's some songs that helped me through my homework... & talking on the phone.... & playing Nintendo ;-) I'd say my favorite songs here at the time were the ones by Duran Duran & Blur.

this is so rad. these songs were more from my middle school years. i remember sitting on the bus in 7th grade coming home from school and the driver would let us listen to the radio. everyday i'd be waiting for arrested development to come on. and don't even get me started on the soup dragons.

I was a big Duranie in the 80's...sigh. This mix is cool. Most of these songs were out when I was in college. "Humpty Dance"? Ha, ha! Hadn't thought about that song in years. Thanks! :)

Whew! This was a trip through memory lane. Most of these songs were on constant rotation in my car while a senior in high school. I had totally forgotten anout that MOLG album, let alone the Beloved and The The trax. Great mix!
