2000 / 2001: My personal Soundtrack [04, 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 4‘, 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 three, 1999 to 2000, please go here (Link).

I’ve watched almost all of these movies 5 years ago or earlier, and with some of them – ‚American Beauty‘ or the Mel Gibson ‚Hamlet‘, seen when I was 13 – I’m not sure if I would still rank them THAT high: I *remember* all of them as excellent films… but I haven’t re-examined most of them in years.
