SONG TITLE: Good Vibrations by Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch
A BLAST FROM: September 1991

PLACE OF MEMORY: Rye High School
EMOTION: Gotta Dance!
MEMORY: Why my dad never drove me to school and why he made his secretary do it, and also pick me up, I'll never know, except that my dad was a horrible dad. He didn't love my mom, and he certainly didn't love his kids. But I still smile when I hear this song, because Louise (my dad's secretary) would always let me play whatever radio station I wanted when she picked me up or dropped me off, and I always put on Z100 or 95.5 PLJ, and at this time, EVERY DAY, this song played, and it always made me happy. "Good Vibrations" is one of the two songs that always remind me of my year at Rye High School: getting roped onto Varsity wrestling because I weighed 87 pounds; joining Naval Junior ROTC and getting suspended because I was in a hotel room on a trip with other classmates who were underage drinking (not me!), and living at home with just my dad because my little sis and mom were still living up in Maine. It's sad: the only things I remember from that year have to do with Rye High. There are no memories of doing anything with my dad. Why? Because he never did anything with me. I still remember to this day, one day on Father's Day, my dad yelled at me, and my sisters, and my mom, "Oh nothing good has ever come out of me being a father to you kids." That was the day I knew. Tip: never say something like that to your kids. They will never forget it.
