Tuesday Tunes: Jets to Brazil - You're The One I Want

This was one of my all-time favorite songs during the last couple years of high school. It's still wonderfully good. I'm sure everyone has those songs that bring you back to a specific time. This one is all junior and senior year of high school. Jets to Brazil is one of the first indie bands I started listening to after my cousins burned a bunch of CDs for me. We were up in Illinois for Christmas. We drove around, went to the one music store that actually sold some lesser-known stuff, and blasted the tunes around town. The winter of 05-06 really sticks in my mind as a musical awakening. My music taste was forever changed - or broadened, I should say. Thus began my never-ending search for new/interesting/talented/entertaining bands. 

I'll never get enough of this song.

This is such a great album! I have a colored vinyl of it that my husband bought when one of his old bands was on a small tour (he got it in PA for me) back when we were engaged in '03/'04 (I think it was January of '04 though that he got it). We had it on CD for a while before then, but still prefer it on vinyl. It is such an unknown band that I am so happy to see someone posting about it right now!!!! yey!

Funny, I've never heard this song but my Junior year of high school (07) was also when I was awakened to the wonderful world of indie music! Nothing better than finding a new unknown band that you love so much!
