Happy Tuesday, Girls!! Isn’t it crazy how a song can bring back so many memories? I heard a song on the radio and it instantly took me straight back to high school-senior year! Then I was all caught up in the memories!! This post is just silly and fun!
I graduated high school in 2001. The year where a gallon of gas cost $1.46 (holla), Wikipedia went “live” online, Napster closed down (do you guys remember that?), and Ocean’s Eleven (the original) was playing in theaters.
I’d thought it’d be fun today to throw-it-back a little.
Top 10 Songs in 2001:
*Hanging by a Moment-Lifehouse
*All for You-Janet Jackson (I think during this era she went by simply, “Janet”)
*Drops of Jupiter-Train
*I’m Real-Jennifer Lopez
*If You’re Gone-Matchbox Twenty
*Let Me Blow Ya Mind-Eve
*Independent Woman-Destiny’s Child
2001 Erika’s version of my Top Three:
1. Country Grammar-Nelly (edited version) You guys remember I confessed to being a closet-Nelly fan??
2. Jumpin’ Jumpin’-Destiny’s Child
3. I’m Real-Jennifer Lopez (again, edited version of course)
Do you guys remember those??
I remember on my sixteenth birthday my mom took me for my driver’s test. After passing, I drove myself to pick up two girlfriends. Be jealous this is what we were cruising around in…
Super cool in 1986, not so much in 2001. hahahahaha!! I remember sliding Christina Aguilera’s,Genie in a Bottle, cassette tape in! After picking up one friend, we “cruised town” (I’m not even kidding and keep in mind it’s approximately 1:30 in the afternoon AND my town had approximately 92 people residing in it. It wasn’t really “happening” at 1:30.) and in the middle of town my car died. hahahaha! One of the guys in our class happened to drive by and he helped us push it off the road. We ended up running over his foot. It was a horrible turn of events. Trust me! We had to have girlfriend #3 come pick us all up. Bummer! The story ended well with a surprise party at my house later that day. I was so surprised and had no clue!!
Back to the music, so envision me in that Trans Am cruising town with the music blaring!! hahahaha!! Now that I shared my senior-year faves, it’s your turn! I want to hear what your jam was in high school!! Please share with us!!
