If I had wanted to do these Mondays are for Music posts in a strictly chronological order, this post should have come before the Hanson post. But I’m not that organized.
This was the first song I ever heard on the radio that really struck me. These were the days before looking up a song online, so I remember purposefully listening to the radio so I could hear the DJ announce the name of the artist.
It was also around the time that I started to have crushes on boys. There was a boy in my fourth grade class who looked like Shawn from Boy Meets World and I used to imagine that this song was written for us. Oh, unrequited fourth grade love.
Anyway, without further ado, I give you…Alanis.
