i loved it then, i love it now

When I was in Grade 7 I discovered the Lisa Loeb album Tails. I loved it then and I still love it now. Back in 2004 my bandmates and I went to see Lisa Loeb in Toronto. It was an amazing show and she even did an autograph session afterwards.
I actually don't have any of her other albums (although I have heard them and like them) but I love listening to Tails every now and then. (I'm listening to it right now, haha)

This song is one of my favourites.


Isn't Lisa so cute! She always has awesome glasses too. Actually I just found out right this minute that she has a glasses line!
Is there any band or artist that you loved as a kid that you are still into today?

  7. You've probably never heard of them, but when I was growing up (say from about 9-13) I absolutely loved a British boyband called Take That. They were cheesy as hell, but I loved them!

    They reformed again about two years ago, and as a favour to my mom (who's slightly obsessed with them now that they're a "manband") I'm going to see them in concert in June. Eep!

  9. I don't own any Lisa Loeb albums but I know that song by heart! One of my first CDs was the soundtrack from the movie Reality Bites and this song is on there. I used to make my family members watch me perform this song with my hairbrush mic. ;D

  20. Lisa definitely has a special place in my heart. I feel like she is my awesome older sister. :D I've also been looking for these style frames for FOREVER, but can't seem to find them. :/ The ones I have now are like rounded rectangles.

    So glad to be a sponsor this month! We love you, Elycia!!!

  21. i still love lisa loeb! because i wear glasses a lot of my past co-workers used to "jokingly" call me lisa >.< she's great though! my guilty music pleasure from back in the day would be Hanson. They are still making music and they still rock and I can't help but love them! ^_^

    have a great day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Okay, I agree with the above! Hanson all the way, baby :)

  23. I became enamoured with Matthew Good in my early teens and he is still my idol/favourite musician today! (AND, I've met him 3 times! I may post about him and my love for him on the blog now that you got me thinking...)

    PS. Sorry for the deleted comment on the Farva hiding post... I accidentally left this comment on there first...whooops!

  26. Smashing Pumpkins.

  27. Ooh! I do like her glasses range :) I'll have to remember her as and when I need new frames/lenses. I especially like her 'wishing heart' frames in eggplant and aqua...

    As for the bands, most of what I listen to now is what I used to listen to now. I love A-ha, Bowie, Bjork, T-Rex - a real mix, *ha ha!*

  28. i love that song "stay"

    as for still liking bands, i still like hanson. i even remember when i was younger and i got their cassette tape- i was so excited about it! haha

  29. Aaw, I was just digging through my old cds and was reminded of her rad glasses. :) She was ahead of her time! My sister had her cd growing up, and it wasn't until years late I stole it - 'How' is still one of my favorite songs *ever*. And 'Jake'. And 'Truthfully' - all from the 'firecracker' album. :) Love!
