Welcome, to 1990!

The iPod is in a grungy mood this morning. The last seven songs were:

  • The Fastbacks: "Beaujolais' The Beat", from the great Estrus "Half Rack" compilation
  • Nirvana - "In Bloom", from Nevermind
  • Nirvana - "Spank Thru", from the "Sub Pop 200" compilation
  • Led Zeppelin - "Bron-Yr-Aur", from Physical Graffiti
  • Dickless - "Saddle Tramp", from Sub Pop's "The Grunge Years"
  • The Wrens - Thirteen Grand, from The Meadowlands*
  • Sonic Youth - Silver Rocket, from Daydream Nation

It's like being in college again, but without the unappreciated lack of responsibility.

OK, a few songs past that, and it's played another Sonic Youth song from Daydream Nation (the perfect SY album, IMO), another Nirvana song, and a song from my first college band, a grungy little rock combo that played a few Nirvana, Sonic Youth and Mudhoney songs.

I think it's trying to tell me something.

* Sure, The Wrens song is a new one, but it fits right in with its neighbors.
