i dont play any instruments- i CANNOT hold a tune.( but i do SING)
regardeless..Music is the most valuable and powerful *thing* in my life- barnone- has been since i was a kid-
Music causes me the most joy and pain.
Songs have the most poweful emotional tapping-in to my psyche…random radio songs make me sad/meloncholly /grateful/excited.. in an instant..
And although the beastie boys werent the first to have this effect on me..They were definetly the first music i found my musical independance in..This was music completely detached and removed from my familys’ influence..
I was 13 when licensed to ill came out.
..as i was learning to PARTY.. out came that record… like in the same month.
mom your just jealous.IT’S THE BEASTIE BOYS.
i have the most amazing memory of spring break grade 9 – in whistler- we all got drunk on shitmix and kokanee’s went to the arcade and smoked bensen and hedges..and listened to that record over and over. god it was fun.
thankyou mikeD MCA & Ad-Rock for all of it.
“Come on everbody ..lets Get fu….”
