A song from my childhood

Fountains of Wayne - "Stacy's Mom"



"Stacy's Mom" was released in 2003 but I didn't truly begin to love it for several more years until I would spend Saturday nights at my mum's friend's house playing the PS2 with her daughter. Our favourite game was SingStar Pop and of course, "Stacy's Mom" (along with Blink 182 - "What's My Age Again") were our go-to tunes.

"Stacy's Mom" reached No.11 in the UK singles chart and was nominated for a Grammy. What really stuck this song in my head over other songs from my childhood was the music video. It's hilarious.

I love rediscovering songs that I used to love and songs like this are so important because they take me right back to where I was when I would listen to them.
