ITEM OF THE DAYItem of the DaySarah Heyward

There are certain songs I can’t hear even a few notes of without being transported back to the exact time in my life when they were popular (‘Mouth’ by Merril Bainbridge is a particularly potent one).  In some cases, there are entire albums that have this magical time-travel effect. The Dawson’s Creek Soundtrack, Volume 1  is such an album. These songs defined my middle school experience. I listened to them on my Discman on the way to school, fell asleep to them every night and memorized their lyrics without even trying because they related, like, so completely to my life. Eventually, of course, I moved on but there has always been a special place in my heart for this soundtrack and if one of its songs shuffles onto my iPod, I’m incapable of skipping past it.

iTunes tragically does not sell the complete album, so rock out with Dawson here instead.

    AMEN. One of my most heatbreaking moments was when I realized that the DVD versions of the show do not have the original music (and, even more of a knife to the heart, beginning with the season 3 DVDs, they don’t even play the original THEME SONG). So this and the follow up Volume II album (which featured Crazy For This Girl by Evan and Jaron) are the only links that we Dawson’s Creek fans have to our true history. I’m not SUPER vengeful, but I hope someone in some music licensing department lost their job over this terrible oversight.

    holy good lord, i thought i was the only one who listened to this album obsessively. it was constantly playing in my room, while on the bus going to and from school, and usually in my head during class when i should have been paying attention…glad to know i wasn’t the only one. and ps. it’s still totally on my ipod. and i listen to it still….don’t judge.

    When a girl broke up with me in high school I had one last request. We sat on the edge of my bed, held hands, and I played PJ Olsson’s Ready for the Fall. I was a regular Dawson’s Leary. I remember beginning to cry when the first chorus came:
    Where will you go after me
    Where will you go after I set you free
    And I don’t know you from a page in my book
    Though I should
    Though I should
