1998 / 1999: My personal Soundtrack [02, quick list]


I started keeping a diary on October 26th, 1997. I was 14 and in 9th grade. I kept up until 2004, and every year, I made a ‘personal soundtrack’ with songs that reflected last years’ themes and storylines.

Here are 20 songs for ‘Season 2’, October 1998 to October 1999.
