YouTube Tuesday: 17 Again

No, I haven't seen 17 Again. But I do know that if a movie were to be made about a 17-year-old me, the following songs would be on the soundtrack. Especially the youth-group montage. This YouTube party excludes the genius of BBMak, the catchiness of "Bye Bye Bye," and the music-life-changing album, All That You Can't Leave Behind. Once Bono showed up, the boy bands started to fade away...

To most of you, I apologize.
To the exceptions, you're welcome.

And yes, it's an eclectic mix. Sort of. That's how I rolled. And continue to roll.

The Supertones: "Unite"

From their greatest album, Supertones Strike Back. When they lost the tenor sax player, they lost me.

Plus One: "Written On My Heart"

There were three pastors' sons in this group. And they danced while harmonizing. And I was 17. Enough said.

The W's: "The Devil is Bad"

Swing was so cool. And so was I.

Lifehouse: "Hanging By a Moment"

It's really too bad that this song was played to death. Because the album remains pretty incredible. And I still love this song. Too much.

And saving the best for last...

Jake: "Waiting"

I'm pretty sure I would have married Toby if he had asked me. It's probably best he didn't. But he did help me get 100% on an OAC creative-writing project. And I'm now a writer. Hmm.

P.S. There was also the now-painful (Marilyn Manson Ate) My Girlfriend. But even Relient K is too embarrassed to ever play that song again. EVER. Far, far cooler was this Hocus Pick classic. Yes, I'm so happy, feeling snappy.
