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 5’, October 2000 to October 2001.
For part one, 1997 to 1998, please go here (Link).
For part two, 1998 to 1999, please go here (Link).
For part a complete listing of all years, 1997 to 2011, please go here (Link tba).
