Sugarland: The Soundtrack of Our Lives
Country Duo Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush Share the Music That Shaped Them, from Summer Staples to Breakup Lyrics to the All-Time Best Bedroom Song
THE FIRST RECORD I EVER BOUGHT
NETTLES: When I was in first grade, I bought a 45 of Captain & Tennille's "Do That to Me One More Time." I didn't even know what the heck it was about; I just liked how it sounded.
BUSH: I remember a K-tel compilation I got with the disco version of the cantina song from Star Wars on it.
MY FIRST CONCERT
BUSH: I saw the Police in Knoxville, Tenn., with my brother. I was 13 or 14 and it blew my mind. I knew the songs—I was voraciously listening to every Police song that came out—but we couldn't believe we were in the same room with these people.
NETTLES: Mine was Poison in Albany, Ga., when I was 13. I was all into the fact that these guys wore makeup. And the hair was super glam rock. I was loving it.
MY PROM SONG
NETTLES: "Set the Night to Music," [by Roberta Flack]. It had a line that says, "We could be making love." The [school] administration was all distraught.
BUSH: I was the band at my prom. We played "Boys Don't Cry" [by the Cure].
THE SONG DURING MY FIRST KISS
BUSH: I remember making out to [Prince's] "Purple Rain." It wasn't necessarily my first kiss. Thank goodness, because you've got [eight] minutes of it!
BEST BREAKUP SONG
NETTLES: Ani DiFranco's "Dilate." I relate to it in so many ways, especially the last line: "The world is my oyster and the road is my home and I know that I'm better off alone." I'm like, "That's me."
BUSH: I was always susceptible to things like the Smiths. You could jump off a bridge real quick with "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now."
MY FAVORITE SUMMER SONG
BUSH: I have a memory of listening to the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" while I was drying off from the swimming pool.
NETTLES: "Panama" by Van Halen feels summery to me. I remember being on the river as a kid, out on a sandbar, and the older kids were playing that. I thought it was so good.
SONG THAT MAKES ME CRY
BUSH: Glen Hansard [and Marketa Irglova]'s "Falling Slowly." The pain in that guy's voice is shocking. It's as if you're a voyeur into someone else's life.
NETTLES: "Ghost," by the Indigo Girls. I love the line, "As I burn up in your presence and I know now how it feels, to be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels." Why didn't I write that?
BEST SONG FOR ROMANCE
NETTLES: Marvin Gaye, "Let's Get It On." Come on. What else do you need?
NETTLES: You need that twice!
