One of the tasks on the sound department's plate for Yellowjackets was to create a CD of pre-show music from the time of the play -- something that "hipper" high school students might be listening to. It had to include rock, hip-hop, and Latino infuences. I have a pretty large music collection, including lots of stuff from this period of time -- so I was able to make the CD entirely from my own stuff at home. How convenient!

So, with a little research help from our fabulous intern, Jocelyn, we put the following playlist together:

1. Cool LIke Dat / Digable Planets
2. Hispanic Causing Panic / Kid Frost
3. Let Me Drown / Soundgarden
4. Cut Your Hair / Pavement
5. Soul Flower (remix) / The Pharcyde
6. Violet / Hole
7. Ego Trippin' (Part Two) / De La Soul
8. Cherub Rock / Smashing Pumpkins
9. Steve Biko (Stir It Up) / A Tribe Called Quest
10. 100% / Sonic Youth
11. Dry / PJ Harvey
12. C.R.E.A.M. / Wu-Tang Clan
13. In The Morning / Built To Spill
14. Git Up, Git Out / OutKast
15. Friday I'm in Love / The Cure
16. 93 'Til Infinity / Souls of Mischief
17. So What'cha Want / Beastie Boys
18. Brother Sister / Brand New Heavies
19. Fat Cats, Bigga Fish / The Coup

What songs would make your mid-'90s playlist?
