Well, that’s what I meant, lil and flag. What are the songs that make you feel like you’re between the age of 11-14? Doesn’t mean that your school formally introduced you to the song. It’s not like I had a class that played Guns and Roses :)

But Lil, I love your songs. Both are favorites of mine. I wonder how the Dylan tune would be received these days?

There are definitely albums I listened to more than guns and roses, but there is not a song that immediately takes me back as much as Sweet Child O Mine. Oddly, I didn’t listen to it all that much but it was present at some key moments.

I actually listened to Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Violent Femmes a ton at that age. The White Album was a BIG favorite.

Graceland? You and I would have been pals.
