Maybe you found yourselves singing along to "Girlfriend" on the radio in unison.
Maybe you joked to each other about the Counting Crows, but you still knew all the words to "Mr. Jones."
Maybe you'd both recorded the Gin Blossoms off the radio.
Todd Almond's Girlfriend is the story of your first love. Of your first mixtape. Of finding a connection to each other through a connection to the music. Girlfriend is something of a time capsule for all of us, but particularly to the early 1990s, thanks to music from from Matthew Sweet’s landmark pop album of the same name, which came out in 1991.
Let this playlist from that era take you back — savor the good memories, the awkward moments, the first feelings. Then, let us know: what was on your teenage mixtape? @CTGLA #GirlfriendCTG on Twitter and Instagram.
