J is for...

Joking...Indigo Girls, 1992

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

Let's go to the tape, shall we? Of course I am referring to the mix tape, as once again that is where I met today's group. Someone included Strange Fire and Closer to Fine for my cassette listening pleasure. I had never heard of the band or their music, but was an instant fan. Of course the two songs were not on the same album, so I had to scrape together the college funds to buy both Indigo Girls and Strange Fire. Those were the gateway cassettes, as others followed of course.

I loved the intertwining of their voices, often catchy beats, and lyrics worth pondering. Their music was relaxing when I wanted it to be, or a boisterous sing along if that more suited my mood. This song was by far my favorite on the Rites of Passage album.


  1. I'm surprised music was still being sold on cassette in 92. I thought music had pretty much moved to CDs.

  2. I LOVE THE INDIGO GIRLS!! If you have Pandora, get the Brandi Carlile channel. It gives me LIFEEEE.

  3. I used to love the Indigo Girls, and my male friend made fun of me for it. If you like great harmonizing female vocals, check out Lucius. My favorite group these days.
