Find Me On:
Will have to think of my own list now but I think this one definitley hit at least 5-6 of mine. The other more random track I’ve always really liked is “death of a party”
My first brush with SY would have been around 1990 and seeing the videos for Dirty Boots and Kool Thing. I was a huge Public Enemy fan so seeing Chuck D with them was very cool. They also had a track on the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack which was a fave movie at the time.
My first tape of their’s was Dirty. I’m pretty sure I would have seen the video for 100% on the MuchMusic (Canada’s MTV) alternative show the Wedge the night before as that was usually the routine back then, see the video one night and buy it the next day. My favourite recorded SY moment comes in the one-two punch of Shadow of a Doubt/Star Power on EVOL.
A second after reading “And to my mind, “JC” is one of their 10 best songs” I went to see which track that was and it was literally the one that had just started playing. that’s fate right there.
I think my favourite after moment from Singles was seeing Smashing Pumpkins at Lollapalooza ’94 and they played Drown. I hadn’t heard it for a couple of years and had honestly kind of forgotten about it. Fell in love with it all over again at that moment.
