Really, other than listening to oldies and country, I am a true 80's girl. My first tape cassette was Madonna's "Like a Virgin". My first concert was Huey Lewis. My favorite concert was Steve Perry. In my graduation pictures, my hair was frickin' huge! I had leather boots with the fringy things on them. Long live black eyeliner and Aqua Net!!!

I think we all have been amazed at the amount of crap songs that have made it onto our top 100s.

Your list is waaay better than '96! I recognize more of yours, too.

Sorry about the Michael Bolton, though.

TSHS - Your list seemed better.

SME - Yeah, I'm sorry about Michael Bolton, too. :-/

I miss Huey Lewis. Whatever happened to him?

Bearette - I'm not sure what happened to him. I've not heard his name in a long time. I lost interest when he started doing covers of oldies.

I'll have to do this soon. Actually, I like a lot of the songs from '90 because that's when I actually started listening to the radio (I was 10). Before that, I didn't care, so these are the first songs I knew by heart.

Kit - I grew up listening to my parents' and grandparents' music, so I still have a lot of oldies and such on my iPod.

Ah yes, clouds of lung-clogging Aquanet were so necessary in 1990. My teased-up bangs were literally crunchy.

I'm sorry about Michael Bolton too.

Bearette - Huey Lewis still plays around here at Fairs.

This is a great idea! I wonder what songs were popular when I graduated. Ooo! Or when I was born! Thanks for the fodder for an afternoon spent web surfing. :)

ZS - I didn't even know he was still around.

Bert - No problem! Kinda a fun site. I should punch in the year I was born - I never thought of that.
