Today's Monday Music Rewind features the song Jane Says ... and the band Jane's Addiction.
I remember being really, really into Jane's Addiction my senior year in High school, and like most High School things, it revolved around a boy!
There was this boy that I had this HUGE crush on, and he was the epitome of cool. Black leather jacket. Black boots. Long-ish dark hair. Motorcycle. Football player (defense, not the QB). Really, he couldn't have been much cooler. He was all into reading these Clive Barker books ... which then of course meant that I liked those Clive Barker books. And I remember him being into the band Jane's Addiction. So I ran out and bought the cassette tape (yeah, as if that doesn't date me!), and the cover art on this particular album was controversial, to say the least, and I remember having to hide it from my parents!
To this day, I LOVE Jane's Addiction. And every time I hear one of their songs from this particular album, it really brings me back to my Senior year. Good times!
The story about the boy doesn't have a happy ending though. He had a tragic string of events occur to him, and instead of becoming the famed, brooding writer that I was sure he'd be, he's serving time. But I digress!
Here's a little Jane's Addiction for you listening pleasure! Jane Says:
