30 Day Song Challenge - Day 14

30 Day Song Challenge

Day 14 - A Song That No One Would Expect You To Love

Buddy Holly - Weezer

It was a total favorite in like the 6th grade, lol. A couple years ago, I was walking through the halls of our station and this song was on. So, I'm singing it and one of the guys passed me, did an about-face, and asked incredulously, "Are you singing WEEZER, Jess?!?!?!"

It was hysterical, lol.

Gangsta Paradise - Coolio

Again, like a total favorite in 5th and 6th grade, lol. But, who doesn't love this song if you were raised in the mid-90s?

Another funny story......... I went to a private, Christian, and mainly Caucasion school K-12th grade. For our senior trip, we went on a mission's trip to Honduras. Our bus drivers throughout the week spoke little to no English, but had a fascination with American music. They were thrilled with their tapes of mainly 80's music and show tunes. However, about 3/4 through the week they brought out a tape they hadn't used before. We were all coming out of this indoor flea market and "Gangsta Paradise" was blaring out of the bus. Everyone starting singing/rapping as they were getting on the bus. It was comical to watch all these super white kids walk like gangsters and rap.

Jon would be very proud that you like Buddy Holly! :) He's probably Weezer's #1 fan! :)

I like Buddy Holly too, it might be because of the Happy Days :)

I thought I was so hardcore when I knew the words to Gangsters Paradise....yeah I'm not that gangsta.

I LOVE both of those songs! I do not love that they were popular when you were in 6th grade. We won't discuss how old I was.
