Listen Up Frosh 2001
This looks like it’s some sort of promo freebie, given to students who agree to sign up for approval on a GM VISA card. I don’t even know what possessed me to buy this CD. Probably it was scooped up in a pile of better albums, kept simply because I recognized several tracks. But after playing it now, I realize I’ll not likely ever play it again. Here are my notes, made while listening:
Chumbawumba – Tubthumping: Skipped this, to avoid having it in my head all day.
Smashmouth – Walkin’ On The Sun: see Chumbawumba.
Spin Doctors – Two Princes: Wow, this really dates itself, doesn’t it!
Matthew Good Band – Hello Time Bomb: alright, this I still love. Best song here.
Stealer’s Wheel – Stuck In The Middle With You: Still fun, but overplayed.
Boney M – Rasputin: Started, but skipped. Ugh.
Vengaboys – We Like To Party: And I like to skip your crap track. Next.
N-Trance – Do Ya Think I’m Sexy: No, I don’t. Totally unnecessary cover.
The Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star: Cool track, but also way overplayed.
Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen: see Buggles (above).
The Foundations – Build Me Up Buttercup: can’t stand this after the Goops’ version.
Don McLean – American Pie: WTF is this doing here?
In Sum: All that was missing was Lovefool and Barbie Girl. I’ll be ditching this.
