Tommy: Years One through Six – The official Soundtrack

I’ve been mentally planning this for six years. Now that I’m finally done with school, I can give you my official Tommy: Years One through Six Official Soundtrack. I imagined that every year in grad school was a graphic novel (lol not as cool as Batman: Year One) that documented the stories that made me become who I currently am. It even got to the point where there were different versions of myself – like I would refer back to things like “well “Year One Tommy” would have blah blah blah…”

These songs are, obviously, things I was listening to, but it was also music I assigned to people, situations and/or had meaning to something that I did.
I tried to group the songs based on the people/situations/emotions and roughly by year it was relevant to…I’m pretty sure my old blog entries could piece together the stories (Please don’t judge my cheesy/gay song selections!!)

I’m doing this from memory and feel like I’m missing some important songs and bands (The Killers, Mazzy Star, Chairlift, A TON of DM, Smiths, And One, Morrissey)

PS: There used to be this goth dude in high school – I talked to him more after high school than during – named Sera (short for Seraphim). Whenever I thought up him or heard Jefferson Starship’s “Sara,” I always imagined someone making a cheesy youtube picture montage of him to that song…
