Music Wayback Challenge. Day 6

in musicwaybackchallenge •  last year  (edited)

I was nominated by the lovely @nikolina to do the Music Wayback Challenge. You can find @nikolina 's challenge here

I'm basing my songs on my college years of 88 to 91 so it should be a blast from the past or a little glance at some older stuff for you younger ones.

Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 5

Guns and Roses - Sweet Child o' Mine (1989 UK)

Ok. I know I'm not surprising people or introducing them to new music with this choice. I think most people have heard this track at some point seeing as it's played an awful lot on the radio and TV. For me it still sounds every bit as good and 'current' as it did 30 years ago.

The opening guitar riff instantly takes me back to my college days where life was definitely a big adventure and alcohol experimentation was on the menu. Whether we were at home, in the car, in a pub or even in a night club, this track would be playing at some point. Guns and Roses broke on to the scene in a huge way and the album Appetite for Destruction was selling at a rapid rate. It was one of the first alums that I remember having the warning sticker on it for bad language.

Rules of the challenge:

  • Choose one song from your high-school/college years.
  • Write a few words about who made you listen to this song for the first time, what this song means to you (was it a breakup song? you blasted it at 100% on your audio system when you were partying with your friends?) whatever you want.
  • Write your text while listening to the song. As soon as the song ends, wrap up what you were writing and submit it.
  • Do this for 7 days in a row if you get nominated
  • Mention one person who should do this on each day.
  • Tag it with #musicwaybackchallenge and include these rules at the bottom of your post

Please leave your comments on the music track and If you like the challenge and would love to join in on the fun then leave a request underneath and I will nominate you.

Enjoy the song.
