Sifting through music playlists on a Monday evening in May

Decided to review some tunes I grew up with and long enjoyed…

“Santeria” by Sublime:

Remains a popular tune to this day.

A song from the widely-viewed 1992 movie Wayne’s World, Tia Carrere’s “Ballroom Blitz”:

One could argue we Americans, en masse, began going retarded by the ’90s, and I’d say the ’50s started it.  ha Welcome to the decline. Enjoy the ride…

That was The Offspring with “Bad Habit.”

Seems juvenile by now, but it’s still comical to listen to occasionally.

White Zombie’s “Blur The Technicolor (Poker From Stud To Strip Mix)”:

Pearl Jam’s “Alive”:

George Michael’s “Faith”:

There’s one I probably should’ve taken up time with a few years back. Not that its lyrics likely would’ve penetrated enough at that point, but wish they would have. He and I both needed to have faith and walk away a whole lot sooner. Truly stupid that it went down like it did. Still shaking it off…

Another long-time popular tune I should’ve heeded more closely in recent times:

That was Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ “Don’t Come Around Here No More.”

Right. Understood…  I’ve definitely been looking for something I never found.

That actually was one of the earliest music videos I clearly remember watching as a kid.

“Closer to Fine” by the Indigo Girls:

That’s a timeless song I’ve been re-listening to fairly regularly nowadays.

Sweet’s “Love is Like Oxygen”:

That was Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers with “Into The Great Wide Open.”

“Don’t Mean Nothing” by Richard Marx:

From some random comedy cassette stumbled upon by chance in a truck-stop back in the mid-’90s:

Gotta return to that one periodically. lol Include myself among “people.” Yup. ha Puts it in humorous perspective when feeling down.

Humor is a major blessing. Definitely important to make time for it regularly. Sanity-checker. ha

One that frequently comes up on my headphones, so I go with it, Pet Shop Boys’ “West End Girls”:

No clue why, but that’s another I never seem to fully burn out on over time.

John Lennon’s “Instant Karma”:

Very well might…

Long-time personal favorite, Aerosmith’s “Rag Doll”:

Just fun to hear that one come over a jukebox.
