"a place in the sun" was one of several albums that provided the soundtrack to my Senior year in highschool and my senior Summer (along with "enema of the state", "americana"...and...ugh...Limp Bizkit). I still give it play from time to time. it is a great Summer record that doesn't try to be pretentious. thanks for giving them some props.
Wow man. I am in the same boat as you. Those albums were my Senior Year too and MANY MANY memories to all those songs.
