Letha over at A Stitch In Time has tagged me with the Music Question and here's what I gotta do:
- Start Copy -
1. Go to www.popculturemadness.com
2. Pick the year you turned 18
3. Get yourself nostalgic over the song's of the year
4. Write something about how the song affected you
5. Pass it on to 5 more friends
- Stop Copy -
So let's take a few steps back in time... [OOooo... Look at the swirly colours...]
The Boy : A young, not-so-dashing-looking-as-now Mr anyhow
The Year : 2002
Playing on the radio : Cleanin' Out My Closet - Eminem (edited)
Well, I wasn't really a big music fan during that age. Most of my time was spent on training Taekwondo or on the computer, but this is one song that I particularly liked. I've always admired Eminem's ability to transpose a song from his bad childhood / love life / etc and not to mention it sounds good too, although sometimes there's just a tad too much swearing.
Anyway, didn't really like the lyrics of the song, [something about keeping skeletons in your closets] but what really hit me was the music. You know how most rap music sound like you could reproduce the entire thing with items found in your kitchen? Well, this one wasn't one of them. It had just the right mix of "noise" and actual music with a pinch of punk attitude. And that describes perfectly what all us teens were about during that age.
Playing on the radio : Girlfriend - N Sync & Nelly
This song has particular meaning to me. 2002 was the year PiPi and me first got together. And it was coincidently around the time this song was released too. Learnt much from the song about how to treat a girl right. The first year was hard for us. So many people didn't approve of our relationship and said that it wouldn't last long. Well, take a look as us now. *Bleh* Everytime I hear this song I would think of PiPi.
Ok, now all I have left to do is to pass the flaming torch. Let's hope it doesn't burn any of these people's fingers... You're up next guys and gals:
1. My Cuz, Andrina
2. The Queen Bee, Empress Bee Of the High Sea
3. Newfound friend and collegue, Kelvin
4. The Queen of MeMes herself, Mimi
5. Miss Jappy Singaporean, Yumi

Sadly no. Guess nobody's found anything worth guessing yet. Guess I'll have to dig through my treasure chest to come up with something tommorrow.
