Farewell TRL!

I remember watching Total Request Live's first episode 10 years ago back in '98. A then 16 year old Julie Q would gather with her friends to hang out with Britney Spears and Nsync in their living room. Carson Daly was like the cool older brother who painted his nails black and introduced the songs you were waiting all day to see. Maybe at 16 I was the perfect demographic for stuff like that. Wow just thinking about it brings back my obsession over "I want it that way" by the Back Street Boys. There might be a Tribute playlist added to my iPod today, consisting of the songs that are still in my TRL Folder on my computer.

Playlist as follows.

  • I Want it That Way - Backstreet Boys
  • Baby One More Time - B Spears
  • Ride With Me - Nelly
  • Crazy in Love - Beyonce
  • Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson
  • Hey Ya - Outkast
  • I Drive Myself Crazy - Nsync
  • What A Girl Wants - Xtina

Anyhoo. TRL's series finale is on tonite at 8pm on MTV. The teeny bopper julie is crying on the inside.

What was your favorite TRL song?

I was just talking to Brother Monkey about this today! As you may know, he used to write for Last Call With Carson Daly, and he is friends with Damien Fahey. He is sad for Damien. :(

I now feel super officially old. When I watched it, it was still Total Request Live, hadn't switched over to TRL yet.

I definitely almost teared up when Justin and JC came out, because I remembered watching EVERLY CLIP THEY SHOWED, as when TRL started, I was twelve, and obviously, I couldn't miss a day of the awesomest show ever, especially when NSYNC was on. I can't believe it's over :(

I never got in to TRL but I can understand that it's an end of an era. So sad. Good-bye TRL.

pretty random but i was on TRL on my 18th bday. a bunch of my friends and i went to NYC and were invited to be in the audience. alicia silverstone, kid rock, toby mcguire and jason biggs were all guests - shows you how long ago it was. spiderman had just come out. maybe this is where my obsession for celebrities started? anyway, farewell TRL!
