Day 30: Back To School Album
The Smiths "Strangeways, Here We Come" (1987)
Original U.S. Pressing
Sire Records

Alternative / Rock / New Wave

The main reason why I picked this one as a "back to school" album is because I distinctly remember listening to the cassette version in my Sony Walkmen while walking to high school. It's possible that only happened once, but I remember it vividly. I lived in a suburb where the cool kids listened to classic rock and the freaks listened to alternative rock, and I didn't wanna be a freak (although I'm TOTALLY fine with it now) so although Morrissey was in my headphones, if anyone asked, it was Zeppelin. It's interesting how you fast forward some 25 years later, and now it's cool to be a fan of both. I wish I knew then not to take the "subdivisions" of high school so seriously, especially when it comes to matters of art and taste. Strange days those high school days were. Makes the album title sort of a good "back to school" statement too, doesn't it?

  •   zazoutoyou What a great description of your choice. High school divisions are so odd. If I had told anyone I secretly liked Zeppelin, they never would have believed it. It was bad enough to be the only girl in the chess and AV clubs. Kids are strange. 2h

mscmommylife I have a little fascination with crime stories on shows like 48 hours and Dateline. My husband always teases me that I'm obsessed with these shows that all start the same "it was a small dark town......" My sister-in-law told me about this Podcast @serialpodcasters and I'm obsessed! Started listening to it today and it's so good! If you commute or need something to listen to, I highly recommend it.
