As I was looking through my “642 Things to Write About” inspirational writing book for a much needed late-night creative boost, I stumbled upon something that got me reflecting. The topic question it posed was “If each decade of your life was represented by a pop song what would they be?” My immediate thought was, Come Clean by Hilary Duff and BedRock by Young Money (or anything dubstep), obviously.
But after spending a few hours jamming out to Nelly and reminiscing, I came to a realization. Most of the songs I grew up listening to, no matter how silly they may seem today, always had somewhat meaningful and well-written lyrics that I can now see, shaped me as a person. And as I think even further back, I can't help but also realize that some of the lyrics I grew up to are also unbelievably hilarious and need to be brought back to life.
After much research and reflection, I decided it best appropriate to reincarnate these lyrics in the form of an M Magazine style quiz for your personal pleasure and attempt to make this a fun interactive experience. Yay! Participation! Involvement!
How does it work? Start at the top and make your way down by selecting the lyric that describes you the most and find out what type of 2000's teen you are (or were).
I'm a lil Thug.
