|Your 1996 Theme Song Is: 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins|
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Ah, 1996: interesting year for me. I finally was managing the boyfriend-girlfriend thing; I was wrapping up my senior year of college; I was getting published in Film Score Monthly; I wrote an Honors College thesis tackling psychology, film music and the film The Fisher King; I got to do a phone interview with composer Michael Kamen; and I actually was listening to more music than film music that year, because hanging around my girlfriend Alicia I was near radios more often. So I actually heard this on the radio that year.
The late, great Mike Pearl was one of my best friends, and also the strongest Smashing Pumpkins fan I knew. I think he even got to help out behind-the-scenes at a Smashing Pumpkins concert around that time. I hear the band, I think of him.
Thinking of you, Mike...
