So this really needs to be a two parter, because I have a pair of besties. This is post is specifically about five songs that remind me of Kasi.
Kasi and I met during our college years. We were nearly instant friends. I think it stems from the fact that we’re eerily similar in a lot of ways and for some reason we don’t get on each others nerves after a few minutes. It’s odd. She likes
a lot pretty much all of the same things I do. Scary movies. Check. All things 80s. Check. Things that are super nerdy (ie. science, reading, fantasy). Check. But probably the biggest thing over which we’ve bonded is music. We make a point to see each other (she’s in NOLA and I’m in ATL) at least 2-3 times a year. And the trips are always centered around music. I head to Voodoo Fest every year. We took a 311 cruise earlier this year. And TODAY Kasi is on her way here for the 311 concert tomorrow!
So here they are, the 5 songs that remind me most of Kasi. No matter where we are, if one of these songs comes on, life pauses for a few minutes. Because all of the lyrics (and dance moves) must be performed!
Number 5: Dexy’s Midnight Runners- Come on Eileen
Number 4: The Offspring- Bad Habit (specifically for the part at 2:31)
Number 3: Vanilla Ice- Ice Ice Baby
Number 2: House of Pain- Jump Around
Number 1: 311- Stealing Happy Hours
Anything by Duran Duran
About 100 more 311 songs
…..and at least 20+ more 80’s songs.
So many Halloweens ago.
Last year at Voodoo Fest. Angsty zombies.
This year on the 311 Cruise.
Stay positive & love your life!
Listening to: 311 – Waiting
Eating: Leftover quinoa, lima beans, boca burger
Random fact: Kasi and I were set to dress up like Beavis and Butthead for the costume party on the 311 Cruise, but Norwegian lost her luggage (which held our costumes).
