I’m pretty sure I hadn’t even seen the movie yet. I was probably around eleven, and I think it had just come out and was the cool movie at the time. This was a big step for me coming from listening to the debut Spice Girls album and Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply “on repeat the previous year.
I probably had this record on rotation for about a year after I bought it. It definitely introduced me to new artists that I would come to listen to the next years. It’s funny to think back and remember how silly it was. This was also around the time our local radio station B-104 would have a full hour showcase at midnight every night called “Midnight Magic.” The hour was filled with the most demanded love songs and cheesiest call-in shout-outs. “Yeah, this is Carlos, and I want to give a shout out to my Baby Girl. Just to let her know that I love her, and I am sorry we argued on the phone earlier. I didn’t mean to kiss your friend Blanca…” Stuff like that.
