♫ I’m currently listening to Garbage’s album Version 2.0. This is the soundtrack to my angsty teenage years. I love it! Posted by Henrik on2018-02-07, 10:37 with permalink hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 10:55 @MrHenko This is one of my all time favorites! When I hear these songs I still see my self on a bike, riding to school, listening to them my walkman. I still know all the lyrics… It’s a magic and special album. via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 10:55 @hutaffe Same here with the bike riding and listening to this. In my case it was a cd walkman. (With 10 seconds of electronic skip protection!) That walkman scratched this cd up so badly that eventually it wasn’t playable anymore so it’s one of the few cds that I’ve bought two copies of. via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 10:55 @hutaffe How do you feel about Garbage’s other albums? For me it’s only the ”The World is not Enough” single that’s stuck with me. Still love the bamd though, just because 2.0 is so incrediby good. via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:08 @MrHenko Not Your Kind Of People stuck with me because I heard it a lot on a roadtrip through California with a friend ☺️ The rest of the older stuff is quite good too, but I sadly didn’t really care for. Their latest album is way too weird for me though. via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:09 @MrHenko 😆 I had a real cassette walkman. It was a real fancy one because it was basically just as thick as the cassette itself. What a technological piece of art at the time 😉 via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:18 @hutaffe Cool! Do you still have it? via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:18 @hutaffe Given how the roadtrip influenced your regard for Not Your Kind of People, maybe we hold Version 2.0 is such high regard because of those memories of walkmans, bicycles and school. (And the girl that I liked when I was 14. Her name always flickers by in my mind when I listen to this album.) via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:18 @hutaffe Wow, I’ve been out of touch with the music lately. I had no idea that they had released anything new after Bleed Like Me. I need to chech this out! via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:23 @MrHenko sadly I don’t, but I think this was it… What a beauty! ☺️ via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:26 @hutaffe Awesome! And it had a remote! My cassette walkman was way less fancy and I don’t remember what brand my cd one was. via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:27 @MrHenko sorry, that link didn’t work… Maybe now via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:31 @hutaffe No worries, I got the first link working. 🙂 via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:39 @MrHenko I fail to operate micro.blog today. Reply got lost… It’s always like that with music for me. I even have very good memories about a Crash Test Dummies album 🙈🙉🙊 But I also think that Version 2.0 was their best album by far! via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 11:44 @hutaffe I think Crash Test Dummies was just before ”my time”. Off course I’ve heard the songs but I was just eight years old when the album came out, so it didn’t stick with me. via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 11:48 @MrHenko yeah, I was 10. But it’s true, music that’s special to you in special times of life will stick forever, no matter how bad it is. That’s also why I love music so much. I have countless songs and albums like that. Always great to stumble upon them from time to time ☺️ via micro.blog MrHenko 7 februari, 2018 13:13 @hutaffe Indeed! I think that’s the ultimate proof that people of our age are now old enough to be nostalgic. 🙂 via micro.blog schuth 7 februari, 2018 18:40 @MrHenko @hutaffe We must be rough contemporaries. Love Garbage & am nostalgic now for similar chapter of life reasons. (Also: Green Day & Radiohead) Moved to Madison a decade ago; it’s a bit surreal to drive by the studio where Garbage recorded those first four albums. via micro.blog hutaffe 7 februari, 2018 20:25 @schuth @MrHenko it was such a great time! I guess I will listen to some more music tonight 😉 via micro.blog MrHenko 10 februari, 2018 11:48 @schuth @hutaffe Cool! I found Radiohead way later, so they don’t have that same nostalgic shimmer to me. But Basket Case and When I Come Around definitely bring me back to my best friends room, playing Super Empire Strikes Back in the SNES. via micro.blog Want to comment?
