Stolen from rolanni

1. Go to this site:
2. In the search box in the upper right hand corner, enter the year you graduated from high school.
3. The first item returned should be the top 100 songs from that year. Cut and paste them into your journal.
4. Bold the ones you like, underline your favorite, and strike through the songs you loathe. planetalyx added: Ital the ones you've never heard of.

I guess I listened to the radio a LOT and spent much time in either Tempo Music or The Record Factory!!! I've got the 45's to prove it.

As I went through the list, I could pretty much hear them in my head. Scary, ain't it? I pretty much like the lot. My favorites are bolded. I don't so much as loathe the ones I've struck through, but I'm just tired of them. If I still own "the record (album or 45)", I've marked it with a "*"
