I sold my entire cassette collection (over 100 New Wave classics from the 80s and 90s) for $12 on Craig’s List. I hadn’t listened to them in a while and they were taking up valuable real estate in my family’s Manhattan apartment. My family is growing and I needed to clean house.
Like some aging jock’s high school trophies, boxed, forgotten and dusty, it was time to let them go. All I could think about was how I was turning into Al Bundy clinging to his heydays at Polk High. I thought, “I’m better than that!”
… aren’t I?
Here are some of the songs I’m missing now…
Ebn Ozn – AEIOU sometimes Y
Lene Lovich – Lucky Number
John Sex – Hustle with my Muscle
Jim Carroll – These Are the People Who Died
God Bless the 80’s!
