Music Meme

Thane over at The StoryWhore has a cute little meme.

You go to this site and select the year you turned 18. Then you copy-paste the list of that year's top songs onto your blog. Bold-face the songs you liked, strike-out the songs "that made your ears bleed" (in the words of someone named Tom) and italicize the ones you don't remember or never heard of.

The hard part is not imposing my current tastes on the list. You're supposed to try and remember how you felt then, which is, shall we say, a smidge diferent from how I feel about these songs now. My tastes were rather indiscriminate when I was in high school. If it was played on the Top 40 station, I memorized the words and sang along. That's pretty much it.

Also? I recognized a lot more songs on Thane's list than I do on mine.

* Aaron Neville is a singer that I love to hate. That nasal, quavering moan he uses instead of a regular voice sets my teeth on edge. It's like some bored 8 year old boy is playing with the volume dial, twisting it back and forth as fast as he can. Feh.
