Well, I used to be a musically ahead-of-my-time girl and was so cool that most people had never heard of the hip, happening artists on my CD shelf, ahem. Obviously, that was back in the day. Looked over Rolling Stone's list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and while I've got lots of mixed tapes/CDs and greatest hits of the artists listed, but not the original made me realize how much of a Greatest Hits Collections girl I am, heh. I've got compilation CDs up the wazoo. Love them. Can't get enough o' them best of beauties.

Yep Liz, you used to be cool. listening to whatever radio station that was in Chicago. xrq or something or another 99 whatever. anyhoo....

as a recent expatriate, I can say your lack of musical coolness most likely relates to the fact that European radio is full of boyband and girl pop wannabees. At least in Germany. Havent found a cool radio station yet. Once I think I have, they go and play something like Shania or the latest from Atomic kitten or the sugababes.....Or even worse one of the million boy bands that have come off the searching for a superstar reality shows....If thats reality - I want to move even farther away....

p.s. - Mom is coming to see me first. Jealous?
- signing off - your brother

XRT!! It was XRT! boo hooo

Stuck in a cultural quagmire vast Europop's so true.
