One Part of the 90s I Want to Relive


Dave Matthews Band. Man, did I love them.  My camp counselor introduced me to them in fifth grade and my life was never the same (My life might have also changed due to the fact that my bunk did a song and dance number to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in front of the whole camp, but that’s another story.)  I loved all his albums from then on–I actually didn’t like Crash at first, but eventually grew to like it.  However, after the Lillywhite Sessions album, by fandom decreased.  I couldn’t even get into Everyday.  Sure, they had a few good songs here and there, but nothing like the 90’s era hits.  I don’t want to go to a concert now because I don’t want to hear the new stuff, just the oldies but goodies.  Those concerts were epic.  The tailgating, the cloud of smoke above Alpine Valley, insane amounts of hemp and tie-dye.  Man, those were great.  Concerts now though are filled with the grown up versions of hippies and are far less fun.  If I could time travel back to the 90’s, I would do three things:  rock out on my Skip-It, tell myself to never wear the hat that looks like a condom and go to a Dave concert.
