Carolina

I wrote this song twards the end of 1998. For some reason, I started frequenting a web site called www.troom.com, and would read the answer girl colomn every month when it was updated. In this web site, young girls who are either going through puberty or are about to, write in and ask embaressing questions about their changing bodies. I quickly learned just what a tough time this is for a young girl. With that in mind, I decided to write a song young girls could relate to, to make them feel less alone and make them feel a bit more comftrable with them selves and be less afraid to ask questions. Its something that happens to every girl, and this song was intened to make the experience as easy as possable. Carolina is not a real person, but rather a fictional character for young girls to identify with. I picked the name Carolina because of what it rhymed with, and it seemed like a common enough name as well, which is what i wanted.
The website, which no longer exists, was called Tina's Room, or T Room, or troom. Tina kept an online diary too, it was terrable and lame. Tina turned out not to be real either. This seems to be a trend. Tina was the creation of a major tampon company.

The music to this song was probably written about i think the preceeding spring. My bass teacher was teaching me more about playing slap bass and i wanted to write a slap bass line. When it came time to make the album, i just matched up the bass line with lyrics, and just aranged the tune to suit them.

The album version of this song is actualy an edit. I cut about 3 and a half minutes of boaring instrumental crap.
