Listening Post



I guess my trip down memory lane isn't over just yet.

Close your eyes and drift away -- it's Mazzy Star's Fade Into You.

Wow. I've just been transported back to high school. This song was on constant repeat on my cd player as I sat in my room being angsty and depressed. Looove this song.

I miss that dreamy twang of the 90s. Makes me want to listen to Chris Isaac and the Cowboy Junkies. Guess I'll be renting "Wild at Heart" this weekend.

This is why I don't even pay attention to new music. All good music ended in the 90s. LOVE Mazzy Star, thanks for reminding me.

Thanks, Chez. I didn't even need to click the damn link to cry. This song is forever tied in my mind to a friend who was brutally beaten and killed in high school.

I'm giving you the finger over here.

Chez said...

Sorry to hear that.

It's still a great song.

nicole said...

It's a beautiful song. It just breaks my heart, all these years later.

Wow, I haven't thought about that song in a long time. But I distinctly remember listening to that song with you in 1996. Good times at KCBS.

Chez said...

Hard to imagine the words "good times" and "KCBS" in the same sentence -- but yeah, very good times.

burke said...

Ah, yes. That song and "Five String Serenade" never get old to me.

Red Headed Mama said...

The good times existed, just in very small quantities.

Love this album. Love this song.

But the artist doesn't. A friend of mine lived in an apartment next to hers, and didn't know it until he was playing this song one day and she came over and asked him to turn it off. She had retired from music to become a painter. She couldn't stand to hear it.

I thought that was an interesting tidbit. Back to obscurity.

Who -- Hope Sandoval?

Wow.
