Post #83: Alice in Chains - "Dirt"

Post #83: Two things happened last week, that caused me to pull this album out again.

First, I got together with an old college buddy for dinner, and a topic we both enjoy discussing is music. That evening we reminisced about the great albums and music of the 90's. Specifically some of the bigger names: Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, and Nirvana. For me, my favorite from that time period will always be Alice in Chains.

And secondly, my good friend Kevin and I will sporadically text each other with lyrics to songs. Songs that we listened to together in college. This last week, he texted me a line from this song. My favorite Alice in Chains song.

Dirt was the album I listened to the most throughout high school. I can picture the actual CD I had, and how over time, my fingers created two wear spots on it. (When putting CDs back into their case, I always had to have them perfectly lined up with the top at the top, and the bottom at the bottom, causing me to always grab and hold a CD in the same spot).

A very dark song, but one that will always have a special place in my heart.
