For about 20 minutes in 1992, I was cool. And I had another 15 minutes in 1994 when I wasn't a complete dork. I used to like bands like Barenaked Ladies, They Might Be Giants, and artists like Sarah McLachlan. I still do. Fortunately, these bands' members have become parents along the way, too, and they're doing children's albums.
Exhibit A: Sarah McLachlan
1990s - Songs About Heroin
Today - Songs By Frogs
Exhibit B: They Might Be Giants
1990s - Songs about Science that could Only be Appreciated and Understood by People on Mind-Altering Substances
Today - Songs about Geography, No Chemicals Required
And, perhaps most shocking, Exhibit C - Barenaked Ladies.
1990s - Songs about Shoplifting
1990s - Songs about Love
1990s - Songs about Money
Today - Songs about Letters
Today - Songs about Numbers
Today - Songs about Snacks
On second thought, maybe things aren't as different now as I thought.
BJ is waiting for Nine Inch Nails to come out with a bedtime album. Heeeee...
