Flashback Friday │ Vol. 2

Friday, April 29, 2016

Welcome to Flashback Friday, a personal blog series where I talked about sharing my favorite memories from the past -  a photo, video, archived posts or anything from my memory lane. Join in the fun if you'd like.

If there's one thing that I like about Fridays' aside from the fact that tomorrow's a weekend, is the fact that local radio is playing 90's - early 2000's music all day long. I was a 90's kid and I'm not ashamed to admit that I love the 90's - the music, tv shows, the memories -  not so much with clothing though. So I was on my way to work when I heard this song being played and so I thought it would make a good Flashback Friday post. So for today's #FBF, I'll be sharing with you this music video that is perfect for the summer season - Summer Girls by LFO. 

Released in 1999, this was one of LFO's hits. According to Rich Cronin (LFO's lead singer and primary song writer), this song was supposedly just a demo but was leaked to a US radio station. True  or not, it spread like wildfire and was one of Billboard's biggest summer song of all time. I remember that I used to jam to this song every time it pop-up on the radio - well up until  now.  I even recorded it on a blank tape before just so I can play it on my walkman every time. This song jumpstarted my interest to the band and when Girl On TV and Every Other Time was released, I was hooked.

Truth be told, the lyrics doesn't really make sense but its melody is so catchy. What about you? Was Summer Girls one of your 90's music memory?
