Good Ol

I was 5 in 1998, and I remember all these songs. I am a senior in high school now, and some of these songs take me back to those earlier years. Some songs we will use on our senior slide show.

iTunes fail?

Good riddance came out in 1997

Good Compilation

I was only 26 when these songs came out...

Nostalgia will compel you to purchase many of these...

I just returned from six years overseas and these were my college years, which is to say I partied and drank to many of these songs...

Overall, a good compilation...
