Middle School Medley

I recently realized that it’s been 9 years since I graduated Junior High. Although my style has changed since then (I no longer purchase clothes strictly because there is a miniscule Abercrombie and Fitch moose on the collar, and do not actually wish to be wearing the exact same t-shirt as at least 10 girls in my class), I can’t quite toss some of my tunes like I did those $30+ dollar T-shirts. Here’s a few of my favorite Junior High jams, many—ok, all—of which I can still sing every lyric:

1.) “Aaron’s Party” [Aaron Carter]: I loved Aaron Carter—his bleached hair, side and oversized Adidas swish pants were right up my alley. I even liked his follow-up, “That’s How I Beat Shaq.””Boom, I put it in the Hoop like Slam” has to be the most poignant simile I’ve ever heard.

2.) “Liquid Dreams” [O-Town]: I was in Junior High, and even less mature than I am now. Need I say more?

3.) “Every Other Time” [LFO]: I can honestly remember liking this song for what I thought were it’s incredibly deep lyrics. Read the lyrics, and please tell me how I graduated with an English major.

4.) “Candy” [Mandy Moore]: I’m pretty sure that this song was during my obsession with rhyming. I thought Mandy Moore was genius for the portion of the song “I know who you are, your love is as sweet as Candy, I’ll be forever yours, Love always, Mandy.”

5.) “Follow Me” [Uncle Kracker]: I played this song on repeat. Uncle Kracker still makes me “Smile.”

6.) “Lady Marmalade” [Christina Aguleria, Mya, Pink, and Lil’ Kim]: I thought that this was the best mix of artists of all-time. Fortunately, I have since learned.

Please tell me I’m the only one who can’t bear to trash songs from their tweens.

  1. NO! say goodbye to them! The early 2000’s was THE WORST period in music. I cringe just thinking about it! Don’t get me wrong, I can totally sing every word to every song you just named, but I don’t like it.

    P.S. Looks like Mike had a little spaz-attack early this morning over the O-Town error…
