The Year was 1982

Here's a new MeMe of sorts that I stole from Larry and it works like this: First, go here and enter the year you graduated in the search box. Click the link to the Top 100 songs of that year. Copy and paste the list to your blog. Srike out what you hated, bold the ones you liked, and underline the ones that you loved (I'm going to make the ones I loved a different color 'cuz I roll like that'). After all that effort, post the meme and wait for the steady stream of comments like "that's nice" and "huh, isn't that something." Some of these songs I have never even heard before!

Now ya done it......

Hit that site and started looking at the different years including the one I graduated and be damned if I didn't scare the crap out of the only kid I got left at home.

He's sixteen and he knew some of the songs that I found and actually have archived.....

I let all three pick their own music, unlike my parents, and gave them the liking for all kinds and types of music. I will definitely be posting this list on my blog.

I'd do this on my blog but it would be so closely matched to yours that it's just simply not worth the effort...You already did all the hard stuff and I agree with almost all of your choices. WOW...seems like forever ago when I'd sit in my room for hours on end and listen to all that music. Just got XM radio in my car and I listen to the 70's and 80's stations all the time and just let the memories flood in. SWEET!

I love this meme!

HOW do you change font colour though? I can do strike throughs but am too moronic to figure out the colour thing.

Sandi said...

You and I have close to the same taste in music. Although I must admit some of my likes are your hates. :)

Hey Sheri! I'm happy you liked the meme. I actually got it from a friend in Australia. funny how these things get around :)
