TDP Sweet Sixteen Playlist: Ms. Minty

Ms. Minty is a guidance counselor at BHS who is described by her students as “sweet,” “helpful,” and “really understanding.” Here is what she has to say about what she was listening to at sixteen. 
imagesWhen it comes to U2 and Aerosmith, I bought Achtung Baby and Get a Grip in early high school and became obsessed, so I went back and knew every song that existed for both bands. Mostly, I wasn’t into music they were playing on the radio at the time (I only started to like Nirvana and Pearl Jam in college), so I got into classic rock instead. Any songs that were passionate and sentimental were my favorite and I frequently used song lyrics to reference how I was feeling or to remind me of people. In college, I got more into alternative, hard rock, and nostalgic for the 80s. Now, my favorite current music is country, which I never would have expected. You never know how things are going to evolve…
1. “So Cruel” by  U2 (this was officially my favorite song)
2. “One” by U2
3. “With or Without You” by U2
4. “Bad” by U2
5. “Livin’ On the Edge” by Aerosmith
6. “F.I.N.E.” by Aerosmith
7. “Dream On” by Aerosmith
8. “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette
9. “Immigrant Son” by Led Zeppelin (I listened to this every morning before school to wake up)
10. “In My Life” by The Beatles
11. “Self Esteem” by the Offspring
12. “Don’t Fear the Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult (this and the next one were because I loved “the Stand” miniseries)
13. “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by  Crowded House
14. “All I Want Is You: by U2 (this was my prom song)
15. “You Don’t Know How It Feels” by Tom Petty
16. “Magic Carpet Ride” by Steppenwolf
