My twenty-five favorite songs from this week in 1995, which I just found while looking behind my desk for a fallen camera charger. I was in my freshman year of high school at the time, as evidenced by the fact that this list is the gayest thing ever. Seriously. Elton John, Melissa Etheridge, the Indigo Girls and not one but TWO kd lang songs in the top 10. And a Bjork-written Annie Lennox song that I’m pretty sure I don’t recognize.

That said, I still like about 80% of these songs.
