Tom Petty was my first rock star crush. My parents took me to see him twice when I was eight-years-old. This is not my favorite song by him, though it is one of them. However, I really adore this video. 🙂
I have been listening to this track by George Harrison a lot recently. It’s helping me find peace in a situation that I can’t change, a situation in which I can’t even begin to predict the outcome. And that is one of the many reasons I live and breathe music; it has the power to heal, to soothe, to bring about a complete change in my emotional state. ❤
I don’t have a big long description for why “I Can’t Dance” by Genesis is my throwback track of the week; I simply love this song way too much! Lol.
Next week, I am going to celebrate my birthday with Almost Kings. This is becoming a tradition. I have now spent three absolutely amazing birthdays with those four crazy and wonderful guys from Atlanta. I decided for my throwback post this week I would share photos from those nights–and a video that is simultaneously embarrassing and epic 🙂
When I turned 26…
When I turned 27…
And the aforementioned video
Judge me if you must, but I still love the Backstreet Boys. Undoubtedly the best boy band ever ❤ My mom and I watched the movie that came on Palladia, and it kinda blew my mind to think that they have been together for twenty-two years. I’ve been a loud and proud fan for twenty of those years. And that’s why “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” is the throwback track of the week.
I grew up listening to The Beatles with my mom. I always loved Ringo’s solo stuff. I remember going to see Ringo and his all star band when I was really little, around the age of six or seven. He waved at me and it basically made my life. Lol. This year, my dad took my mom to see them for Valentine’s Day. To say that Ringo’s music–actually, the music of every member of the Beatles, both individually and together–has played a huge role in my life would be an understatement. So today I decided to make my throwback track “Photograph,” from the album Ringo, released in 1973.
Today, I was visited with a strong urge to revisit my “boy band” days. So without any hesitation, I dug out my copy of No Strings Attached, cranked it up, and sang along shamelessly! And that’s why NSYNC’s “Just Got Paid” is this week’s throwback track. 🙂
