Throwback Thursday: "All I Do Is Think of You" by Troop
Back to school time, baby.
This overachieving perfectionist loved school. So many chance to excel and challenge myself, not to mention all the socializing in-between. And no three years were better than middle school...until Howard, that is.
(Bi-son! You know!)
Middle school exposed me to many new experiences: camping trips, weekly Meeting for Worship, and lacrosse rank highly among them. But for a boy-crazy girl like me, middle school was where I fell in and out of love every few minutes. These jive emotional entanglements were unrequited, mind, but that didn't diminish their value. I had 20+ crushes in sixth grade alone, lasting anywhere from a few days to the entire year.
Lucky for Horace, all that romantic energy is now directed at him. Boom, baby!
So when I think of middle school, I think of daydreaming about this boy or that...and being secretly terrified of the prospect of reciprocated feelings (He likes me too. Gasp! What am I supposed to do now?!?). And when I think of that, I only think of this song.
Take it away, Troop.
As soon as I heard, "I can't wait to get to school each daaaaay..." I just knew they wrote this song for me!
What song reminds you of middle school? Let me know below!
