LET ME GO ON! {jump, dance, yell}

Whenever I hear Blister in the Sun by the Violent Femmes, I always think of Angela Chase dancing in her bedroom when she realizes she's finally over Jordan Catalano. {Yeah, right.} I want to jump on my bed, run around the room and dance like no one's watching. I want to yell the lyrics as loud as I can. I totally yell when the song comes on my iPod in the car. It's just one of those songs that requires it. Don't you think?

When I'm a walking
I strut my stuff
Then I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite
I just might
Stop to check you out

Let me go on
Like a blister in the sun
Let me go on
Big hands I know you're the one




The video is horrible quality, but you get the point.

As I've said before, My So-Called Life is a classic.

It was because of Angela that I first dyed my hair red.
I miss her

Totally with the above commenter. I dyed my hair red after Angela Chase did it. I thought I was so cool. And I totally remember that episode. Now I want to dance to that song.

This song always makes me think of my BFF from HS we used to sing it at the top of our lungs. GOOD TIMES!

1 - awesome song. They were so great in concert. 2 - I was just thinking of that show this morning! 30 seconds to Mars was on the radio and I was remembering how much I loved Jordan. :)
