It's time again for the "What's your song?" link-up with Goodnight Moon!
I love 90s music--especially the cheesy stuff that reminds me of my younger, crazier days. You know, the stuff that makes you want to get up and dance and not even care who's watching? Or, nowadays, I just jam out in the car and not care if the person at the stoplight next to me sees or hears. Well, last summer, I was in the car and "Faded" by soulDecision came on the radio and *boom* I'm back in college, rockin' out! I went home, found it on iTunes, and put it on the iPod. This is all happening as I am insanely cramming for my first (of 3) PhD comprehensive exams...in social theory (gag). So, on my way to and from the library, I would listen to this song to keep me grounded, keep me awake, keep me bouncing, and keep me in as good of a mood as possible--it was one of the songs I was able to just enjoy without analyzing the lyrics with social theory. (I know...nerd alert AGAIN.) Anywho, on the morning of the exam, I listened to it on repeat the whole way to the university to try and keep myself distracted/calm-ish. I listened to it the whole way home after the grueling 5+ hours. And, after about a month of worrying, not knowing the results of this horrible exam experience, I found out I passed...woo hoo!!! So, now, this song has even more special meaning to me. I'm getting ready to embark on my second comp exam--in methods. I started to break out this song again, but I want to keep it special for theory. So now I'm in the market for *new* older, bouncy song to keep my spirits up on this latest chase of successfully completing another 6ish hours knowledge regurgitation...I'm open to suggestions for a methods comp theme song!
