Friday Flashback Non-Random 27

The meme the other day got me to thinking. I stopped that as quickly as possible. But I did realize that to figure out what I was doing 10 years ago, or __ years ago, I could probably dig up computer files, and more importantly, mixed tapes. So I went digging, and here's a blast from 1991 (not that the songs were all of that vintage, as you'll see). This is sort of all-over, which makes me like it all the more, a tiny present from 17 years ago.

I have vague recollections of a mix tape I made (ostensibly for a girl I was pining over) back in spring of '92.

Pretty sure I had Pixies on it; think I used "Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons" from Trompe le Monde. Might have had some Feelies too, but don't remember. I think there might have been some Blur (from Leisure and m,aybe REM, but not remembering much else. Alas.
