It’s December already! Can you believe it? As 2016 winds down, we’re embracing nostalgia by revisiting our favorite tracks by Mr. Big and Kittie. Read our reviews to find out why.
**What our deputy editor Laia Garcia is listening to:**
This song is a total cheese-fest and I’m sure if I pay really close attention to the lyrics I will find out that they are hashtag-problematic, BUT I won’t, because I don’t ever want to ruin this song and the perfect music video that accompanies it. We need more acoustic guitar sing-a-longs that everyone can just clap along to in our lives. No, no, i don’t mean like new ones, I just mean we need to rescue all the ones from the 80’s and 90’s because they’re the ones that are gonna get us through the day.
**What our assistant Dianca London is listening to:**
A few weeks ago while home in PA for Thanksgiving, I spent an afternoon poking around my parents’ basement, in search of relics from my teen years. While sifting through painfully awkward school photos and worn copies of *Sweet Valley High* , I rediscovered Kittie’s *Oracle.* The album’s case was cracked and its lyric-booklet torn at the edges, but the disc played perfectly. Even after all these years, listening to “What I Always Wanted” felt like looking into an existential mirror that knows me better than I know myself. It reminded me of how much I loved them after hearing ” (1)” on WMMR in 8th grade and why they remain to be one of my all time faves. Plus their cover of ” (2)” slays so hard that it almost makes me like Pink Floyd. Whatever lineup, track, or album, Kittie will always be the epitome of badass.
