Protect me from ravagement
I'm 10 years old
I don't know what I do
Protect me myself
I'm 14
There's nothing to do
Protect me yourself
I'm 16
Protect me from starving
I'm 18
Protect me you

I thought this would be about single songs you associate with a particular year. Can we do a thread about that?

i think contenderizer did this a few posts ago.

I imagine there's been a whole thread dedicated to that ... but try finding it!

I spent the day after my 27th birthday (now some time ago itself, urgh) thinking about these two songs

27: Herman Dune - Not On Top
"feels like I'll never get my shit together / 27 and I'm fucked"

27: Echo Is Your Love - Shadow of Stockholm
"for 27 you don't seem very smart / in the shadow of Stockholm
(move in at twenty and all you can afford is these dead, dead blocks)"

love,
an aging corny eur0-indie fux0r
