Music meme

Inspired by here (1986) and here (1988). The rules are as follows:

  • Go here.
  • In the search box in the upper right hand corner, enter the year you graduated from high school. The first item returned should be the top 100 songs from that year.
  • Cut and paste them into your journal.
  • Bold the ones you like.
  • Underline your favorite.
  • Strike through the songs you loathe.
  • Italicize the songs you’re pretty sure you’ve never heard of.

I confess I didn’t recognise many after the top 25, so that’s all you’re getting.

Of course these are the American hits, so there’s some transatlantic bias here:

12. Easy Lover, Phil Collins and Philip Bailey
13. Can’t Fight This Feeling, REO Speedwagon
14. We Built This City, Starship
