I was so thrilled to be on “The Songs that Saved Your Life,” a podcast about the 3 songs that had the biggest impact on you when you were 15 years old. This is basically my origin story of how 120 Minutes changed my life and introduced me to Camper Van Beethoven, The Stone Roses and Nine Inch Nails, all of which had a profound effect on me.
I loved this discussion and have thought about it a lot ever since. In addition to talking about how NIN gave so many girls a cathartic outlet for their anger and why Camper Van Beethoven changed the way I thought about longing, I tell my utterly dorky story about Siouxsie and the Banshees at the first Lollapalooza. AND you’ll learn about my long lasting love for much I love mix tapes/cds. (Please, please make me a mix cd!)
