I curated a playlist dedicated to all the 90s babies that found love in generational anthems and jams through the ages in the most unlikely places. Includes oldies, familiars and recents.
Classic, addictive, real, transcending, non-conforming, bold, brave and unapologetic, fierce and persistent, “Turn the Lights Out” reminds me of what pure love feels like. Like: the feeling of when you see your parents dance together for the first time, barefoot and young minded in the carpeted living room, curtains tied back and windows cracked to let the fresh summer evening breeze swim inside your home to wash over the surface of hot and sticky skin perspiring from Memorial Day heatwave, record player spinning a 12″ original pressed “Outstanding” vinyl, your father getting carried away from his signature 2-step your mother would tell you in stories in childhood that made her knees weak, and forget to lower the heat on the BBQ grill, leading everyone to gut-rippling laughter, knowing good and well nothing so small could impact the connection shared anywhere prior to this moment. Not convinced yet? Take a listen for yourself.
