Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little birdhouse in your soul

-Birdhouse in Your Soul, They Might Be Giants

Isn't that a fabulous song? One of the local radio stations (Channel 93.3 KTCL for you locals) was playing it this morning during the "90's at 9:00." I just had to sing along. I know all the words. That was one of my favorite songs in college. I love They Might Be Giants. Now they sing tunes for "Playhouse Disney," including the theme song to Higglytown Heroes. I know all the words to that too, by the way. ;o) Frightening, isn't it?

I like "The 90's at 9:00," but I also don't like it. I like it because a lot of the music from the early 90's was so groundbreaking and fabulous. I don't like it because it reminds me that 1990 was 16 years ago, and it's coming up on 11 years since I graduated college and I'm old. I don't feel 32. I still feel like I'm 22 most times. The fine lines around my eyes are my "reality check." It's hell getting old!

What are your favorite songs from the 90s?

I used to LOVE TMBG. I still have a couple of their CDs.
Favorite songs from the 90's? Probably Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, anything but the Macarena. LOL!
