My music

Ok, I'm stealing this idea from Jen, Scott and Renee cause I'm feeling lazy today. Go here and scroll down to find the top 100 songs from the year you graduated from high school. Put the ones you liked in bold. I was going to put the ones I absolutely hate in italics. But there were way too many of those, I'm afraid--I was not a top 40 kind of girl. So instead, I've italicized the ones I've never heard of.

That's a good idea, italicizing the ones you haven't heard of. There were a few on my list, too. How did that happen, in my MTV soaked high school years?

1989? I recognize all those songs and knew most of them by heart! That was the best year of music for me growng up as a kid.

So much for miss reading. I originally though you had but in bold the stuff you had never heard of, to which I was outraged. But in the end we seem to have similar music tastes, but there are a few more I would have highlighted.
