G is for...

Get Me...Everything But the Girl, 1994

Trying to recapture part of the soundtrack from my life during the 90's is my theme for the a-z challenge this year

My husband and I started dating in 1994, and he made me a mix tape - as one does. I think the intent behind that particular creation was more to ease me into his musical tastes, rather than to profess his undying love. The cassette introduced me to several new bands, including Everything But the Girl. (I believe Gepetto, by Belly was on the song list as well, but this one definitely wins out for the letter g.) Not every tune had me asking to borrow the CD like Everything But the Girl did. It is funny how after twenty-two years of marriage, I do still find myself wondering from time to time if, in fact, he will ever get me. Most of the time, however, I have to admit that he really does.


  1. Funny - I was the one making mix tapes, and yes I was professing like and love and also expanding Ray's repertoire.
    Darn GOOD song, Girl

  2. Ahh the 90's....loved every moment.

  3. I'm still making mix tapes. lol
