If I found out...
You have no idea how shocked I was to see Athlete’s Tourist and Massive Attack’s 100th Window among a great, messy bulk of CDs that were on sale for only RM9.90. Nestled among them were other dubious and creepy titles, such as Everlasting Love Songs Collection X and a few other compilations that should not even have seen the light of day.
I saved the two earlier CDs from impending doom, taking them to the counter immediately.
The only thing about the two CDs that I bought was this: they are copy-controlled. Sigh.
That aside, Savage Garden’s Truly Madly Completely had been staring back at me from everywhere. I almost feel guilty for not getting it. Looking through the tracklist, I thought I was transported back to the late 90s.
Ah, those were the times when I would squeal everytime they came on television or the radio, keep track of chart listings to ensure that they are still on top, cheer whenever they received awards, maintain an unofficial website dedicated to them, and feel elated hearing my voice on air because I, er, voted for them to stay on the local charts, too.
Those were great times, indeed. Then there was the concert, where I sang myself hoarse, got a sore throat and still had to drag myself to school the next day.
Two albums only, and already one greatest hits compilation. Man.
Fine, fine: stop cringing, already.
Admit it, we all go through that embarrassing ‘fangirl/fanboy’ phase where we worship the first artistes we thought we knew so well.
At least you will never hear me proclaiming my love for Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync or even the Spice Girls…
Sheesh, it has been that long, huh?
On air now: Can’t Stand It, Wilco
