I was wild, as you can probably infer from that photo. This picture was taken on Halloween in my sociology class. The professor told us to come to class that day as our favorite social deviant. I was in the middle of chewing a Tootsie Roll. I'll just let everyone guess as to whether or not I had anything on under the trench coat. Just keep in mind that I was a scholar. A flashing scholar, but a scholar nonetheless. ;-)
Here are about the only good songs I remember from that year. I didn't listen to most of the awful popular crap then, but I did really like:
Sweet Child Of Mine - Guns & Roses (they were SO great)
Need You Tonight - Inxs (so were they)
Hysteria - Def Leppard
Father Figure - George Michael (kind of a creepy song but I liked it)
Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car - Billy Ocean (goofy but fun)
Red Red Wine - UB40 (I got real sick on red wine that year, still can't stand it.)
Devil Inside - Inxs
Wishing Well - Terrence Trent D'Arby (one hit wonder)
Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin (actually I hated that song after it was so over played)
Copperhead Road - Steve Earle
Push-It by Salt N Peppa.
I don't remember much about that year. About the only TV show I watched on a regular basis was thirtysomething, but I remember watching the Tracy Ullman show and seeing the early version of the Simpsons on it (I think that was in '88). Probably the most signicant event of the year was casting my first Presidential vote. I'm too embarrassed to say who I got my vote.
