The site of my childhood bedroom, located about 5km North of the Brisbane City, contains relics of a time between the dates of ‘95 & ‘10. On the weekend dating 21/22 June, armed with CD cleaner and my trusty box of Telfast, I decided to excavate this site in the hopes of discovering long-lost musical artefacts.
Amongst the red herrings consisting of blank CDs, photo CDs, a Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego game, the Big Brother CD single & Peter Combes’ Christmas Carols, there were some fruitful discoveries which can tell us a lot about my musical past.
Unfortunately, with the approximate lifespan of CDs ranging 10-15 years, some results came back inconclusive. A report of my successful findings can be found below (dated in chronological order):
Approximate Date: 1999/2000 AD
I almost ejected the CD upon hearing the first song, thinking it was one of my parents’ Spanish-themed dinner party CDs. Turned out to be the next best thing – Enrique Iglesias. Ranging from soppy pop songs to tracks about weed and ‘jacking off’, this playlist is just as confused as the fashion at the turn of the Millennium.
Part of the ’bring a burned CD to every party you attend and take over the sound system’ era. These findings are comparable to the current ‘plug in your own iPhone and take over the sound system’ era we live in today. It seems some things never change.
