Then of course in elementary school I was into the obscenely poppy music of the Spice Girls and Britney Spears. More notably I fondly remember listening to Ray of Light and Loreena McKennitt. My mother also loved the song I Knew I Loved You notably.
And then came 5th grade when I started my first real mix tapes put together from the few radio stations that I could pull in from where I lived.
