September 14, 2008

My friend, A Soldier’s Wife posted this yesterday and I thought it was too much fun to pass up.  Music is a huge part of my life so I thought it absolutely fitting that I participate in the fun.

If you want to join in the fun, go to Music Outfitters, then in the search box… type in the year you graduated.  A list of the top 100 songs from that year will appear.  Cross out the songs you didn’t like, Bold the songs you liked, Italicize the songs you loved, if you don’t remember the song or don’t have any strong feelings about it… leave it as is.

Well, that was fun!  I remember most of these, but I listened (and still do) to a lot of Contemporary Christian music.  My childhood best friends and I were also really into oldies… so we listened to The Beatles, Steven Miller Band, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole.  I listen to everything… except Rammstein (The Husband loves Rammstein and I cannot stand it.  I often threaten to learn German just so I can understand what they’re so pissed off about.

I guess taste in music hasn’t changed much.  I still listen to Frank Sinatra at an alarming pace. I love pretty much everything.
Happy weekend everyone!

    Funny, looking over your list, I know so many of these because at that time, my oldest daughter was just coming into music herself, pulling her younger sister with her, much like mine did….wanting to go to her first concert, I spent hours, weeks, months trying to obtain tickets to the N’Sync concert, to no avail…her friend a few doors down, however, did go, and she was one of those “friends” who made her feel horrible about the fact that she went and my daughter didn’t. I would have paid anything to get her there…..

    She finally, after many years of moving around went to her first concert this summer with her dad and sister, they went to WARP TOUR, a new age, grunge type gathering of music groups where they saw most of their very favorite artists perform. They got to meet them, talk to them….they were very happy in retrospect that they never got to go to the first one back then…. They saw one that I would have like to have seen myself, since there is a lot of music they listen to that I really like (and some I can’t bear to listen to at all) here is the one that I would have liked to have seen …Paramore.

    I too love contemporary Christian music as well as music from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, The Andrew Sisters, Billie Holiday, Dean Martin, Danny Kaye ….. I could go on..and on….

    I guess there isn’t much music I don’t like.
    Its interesting to see how music spans the generations and pulls us together….even though as adults we have quite the age difference between us….

    I guess it is a clue to my advancing years that I am not familiar with more than half of the list.
    I do, however, like your oldies list.
    As far as the angry Germans go, never heard of them and maybe that’s a good thing.
    I like a good crooner, and some classic sing along rock.
    (And I am quite happy that my daughter has long outgrown her Destiny’s Child phase, they were getting on my nerves.)

    Sinatra and all the crooners are always welcome in my home. Show tunes, 80s music, and lots and lots of classical music area always welcome here. I’m trying to inspire the budding violinists in my home. Hope you had a good weekend.

    Ohh what a fun list, takes me right back to high school and those amazing times, I remember almost all of those songs. Can’t believe that was almost 10 years ago. I love all kinds of music, if I’ve been exposed to it, I usually end up liking it. I was a huge Natalie Cole fan back then too. I may have to dig out my old CDs and have a musical walk down memory lane. 🙂
