A music Meme that ain't too bad

...that I stole from A True Jersey Girl, one of my favorite Jersey ladies.

Rules of the Meme...

Go HERE, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, and click on the year of your high school graduation.

BOLD the songs you liked (back then), ITALICIZE the ones you hated, RED the ones you don't remember, and leave the rest alone.

C'mon, it's not that complicated. Really.

Oh dear. I remember almost all of them. And I'm betting if I heard some of the ones I marked in red, I'd remember those as well...

And I'm hesitant to admit that most of the ones I liked then, I still like unto this day. Which appears to be nearly all the songs on the list.
And I still know the words to most of 'em. *sigh*
