'94 Meets '14
One of my goals this summer was to dress more like 1993…and I’ve been taking that goal one step further by living like it’s 1993 (or about then). The summers of 93-94 were epic years for pop music and WNYC’s Soundcheck radio show has been celebrating with its “Summer ‘94” series to celebrate the 20-year-anniversary of many cornerstone hits. It is hard to believe, but it has already been twenty years since we first heard Lisa Loeb’s Stay, Beastie Boys’ Ill Communication, Nas’ Illmatic, and Jeff Buckley’s Grace. Yep, the Sabotage video is 20. So, not only have I been soaking up every Soundcheck piece on ’94, but I’ve been listening to early 90’s releases on my Spotify and iTunes whenever I get the chance. Also, I read Here we Are Now by Charles R. Cross about Kurt Cobain’s lasting legacy. Yes, he died 20 years ago.
