I don't wanna wait

From an unnamed university in the greater San Francisco Bay Area...

So it's Anything Goes Friday, where we play whatever music we feel like. My officemate and I were in meetings all morning, so our wonderful workstudy students (undergraduates who help us in our office to offset the cost of tuition) decided to take it upon themselves to decide the theme for the day. They have chosen "Terrible 90s Alt-Rock." To achieve this theme, they have created a 3rd Eye Blind Pandora Station. Said station features the following:

A live version of "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis

"Mr. Jones" by Counting Crows

"Barely Breathing" by....someone. You know the song" "I am barely breathing/And I can't find the air/Don't know who I'm kidding/Imagining you care..." Duncan Sheik! I'm pretty sure that's right. I know I could easily look it up, but I will not.

"Black Balloon" by the Goo Goo Dolls

"Push" by Matchbox 20

"Absolutely" by Nine Days ("This is the story of a girl/Who cried a river and drowned the whole world")

And of course, that 3rd Eye Blind classic, "Semi-Charmed Life".

This station could easily be renamed "Songs Featured on Dawson's Creek".

  1. I love that all it takes to create a "Terrible 90s Alt-Rock" station is to enter 3rd Eye Blind into Pandora. I wonder what would happen if you added a Meredith Brooks station...
