What Were You Moshing to at the Senior Prom?

Another Meme

Go to the music outfitters and type in "100 top songs" and the year you graduated from high school in the search box. What pops up is a list of the top 100 songs from the year you graduated from high school. Bold the songs you loved, strikethrough (or italicize) the songs you wished were wiped off the face of the earth, and leave blank the songs you either don't care about or have no idea what they are.

oh, mark -- no way. i have my standards. there are too many songs that should be wiped off the face of the earth and only two i would actually admit liking, both by the police.

i'd like to say i've changed, but i didn't like the music then, either.

and i have to lol at amy. she is just fresh :)

Wow - what a trip down memory lane!

I looked up my year (1984) and was amazed at how many songs I didn't care for. I was able to pick out a few favorites (The Cars, The Police, Eurythmics, Prince, etc), but a lot of what I was listening to (The Clash, early U2, David Bowie, late New-Wave) wasn't on the radio back then, at least not in rural Kansas. And it sure wasn't played at prom (which was primarily slow dance & country two-step)!
