The Playlist of My Youth

I think one reason why I am so partial to middle grade fiction is because my middle school years were some of the best years of my life! I thought it would be fun to relive those years by putting together "the playlist of my youth" and sharing it with you all here. :D This is the playlist of my favorite songs during middle school: songs that were really popular (like "The Sign" from Ace of Base and "I'll Make Love To You" from Boyz II Men), songs that I played over and over and over again in the car or at home (like Disney's The Lion King soundtrack and "Stay" from Lisa Loeb), songs from my favorite tv shows (that's right, Shari Lewis' Lamb Chop's Play-Along AND Beverly Hills 90210), and songs that really meant something to me (guess which song was playing in the background when my first "boyfriend" broke up with me).

Happy listening! :o)

Edit: There are 17 tracks on the playlist. You won't see all of their titles and artists right away, but you'll get to listen to all of them if you press play. :D

This is such a sweet idea. Middle school... what were we listening to? Oingo Boingo, Peter Gabriel, Village People (lol), English Beat, The Go-Go's, Duran Duran, UB40...
