Buzz In: Do You Still Listen to Your Favorite Albums From High School?

A few weeks ago Third Eye Blind released a new album, and it brought me back to my middle school/high school days. In the pre-iPod age, I couldn't get enough of their first two records and wore 'em out on my boom box (yes, boom box) and in my car. These days 3EB doesn't get the same heavy rotation they once did, but every now and then I'll listen to a song or two when I'm feeling nostalgic. The same goes for Green Day's Dookie, which was literally the first CD I ever bought with my own money as well as a few other classics from my collection.


That said, the vast majority of the beloved albums from my olden years don't really resonate with me anymore (I'm looking at you, Ace of Base); my music taste has expanded and these days I find myself constantly antsy for something new. Even though I made a point of pouring all of my old music into my iPod, they usually get skipped over. What about you — do you still listen to your favorite albums from middle school and high school, or are you onto bigger and better things? Which albums will always be close to your heart?

Only some - No Doubt, Lauryn Hill, Natalie Merchant, The Wallflowers, Red Hot Chili Peppers - all of these albums from the mid-to late 90s are still in rotation for me. I even listen more to some stuff I didn't like in high school like Spice Girls, just for nostalgia. I actually like them more now than I did then because it makes me reminisce.

I still listen to mostly all my albums from, because I've turned into that old lady that hates most things on the radio.

Are you kidding me? I listen to The Bends and OK Computer every chance I get. As well as Nine Inch Nails, Blur, The Cure and my Romeo + Juliet soundtrack. Those were the days!

How can Ace of Base not resonate with you anymore, Buzz!? Such a travesty! All kidding aside, I definitely listen to my favorite albums from junior high and high school - Green Day and Radiohead, most notably.

I'll put some of them in every once in a while, but the only one that I listen to with regularity is Jeff Buckley's "Grace". It is still my go to album while driving.

I will still listen to some songs from my Romeo & Juliet soundtrack every now and then. That CD takes me right back to my middle school days!

I sure do. I still rock my Cure and New Order CDs on a regular basis. Sometimes I still listen to Depeche Mode and NIN's Pretty Hate Machine, too.
