I’m Coming Out…

…and admitting that I love the following female pop songs from the 90’s. It took me a couple decades, but I no longer care what you or anyone else thinks about my love for these tracks.

These are my jams.

Stay by Lisa Loeb

And you say
I only hear what I want to
I don’t listen hard
I don’t pay attention
To the distance
That you’re running or to
Anyone anywhere

Damn, this is a great song.

I especially love acoustic versions. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard any other Lisa Loeb songs, but for high school nerds who liked strumming their guitars, Lisa Loeb was one of us. She was emo before emo was dark and sad.
