Stereotypes Of High School
I was kind of an outcast in school, so my twin sister and I just kinda formed our own clique. Sure we sometimes hung out with a small group of “nerds” but even then I didn’t really feel like I fit in. My escape was music. I’d take my headphones to school and zone out when I felt overwhelmed, which happened more often than not. I wasn’t bullied or anything, but my sister was and it often landed on me to take care of it. I got into a lot of fights, which I’m not proud of, but it felt necessary at the time.
I Was a Teenage Punk Rocker
Oh the glory of the mid/late 90's and 2000's. The music was sometimes angry, loud, passionate, relatable. The time was full of black clothes, ripped skinny jeans, and band t-shirts. At least for me anyway. I was also suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness which made it seem like I could feel the music to the point of existing within it. My bestie was just as angsty as I was, matching my dark clothes and black eye makeup and sharing the troubles of boys, parents, and bad grades.
A little Monster is Born
When I was in high school, the biggest stars were Beyonce and Taylor Swift. Like high school, the girls were like Beyonce and Taylor Swift. The “Beyonce” girls were the ones who were beautiful and obsessed with; the Taylor Swift girls were the cute and popular girls you wanted to be friends with. Then there were girls like me: the weird, loner girls who felt out of place and did not fit in. However, I found a girl who I felt like I connected with and who “got” me. I am talking about Mother Monster, Lady Gaga.
5 Life Lessons These Great Soul Singers Taught Me
Do you ever feel like half of your life is being spent on reliving past experiences? I do. To dwell in the past is, probably, a bad habit to have, but I can’t help it: a tiny curator in my head likes to play old movies for me. Today he’s playing “Teenage Memories” — my coming of age story. The soundtrack to the film features five women. Confident, unapologetic women with a strong sense of self-worth.
The Kind of Girl I Wanted to Be in the 2000's
I'm a 90's baby who became a 2000's teen. Music, for me, has always been a way of trying to find some craft that spoke to me and resonated in ways that made me go, "Yeah. I've felt that."
10 Classic Songs You May Never Have Realised Were Covers
1. Without You – Harry Nilsson 1971, Mariah Carey 1994 Without You was a worldwide hit for American singer-songwriter Harry Neilson and later for Mariah Carey. Because Nilsson was a respected singer-songwriter, it is widely assumed he wrote Without You.
Does Anyone Remember Megan McCauley?
I first saw Megan McCauley grace a stage in Indianapolis in the early 2000's, after she had released two songs for superhero soundtracks: Die for You on the Fantastic Four soundtrack in 2005, along with Wonder for the Elektra soundtrack that same year. I was attending X-Fest as my first "big" concert experience the summer before I turned nineteen, hanging with my father and his wife (which was actually a lot cooler than it sounds.) We picked up some commemorative t-shirts that listed all of the artists intending to perform, and I noted the names that didn't sound familiar as we headed toward the second stage.
