Another music meme

I got this meme from Nicole who got it from Julia. It looked like a lot of fun, so I thought I'd give it a try. But, turns out, Nicole and I turned 18 in the same year (who knew?) So, I did mine a little differently.

The rules are to go to
popculturemadness and click on the decade you turned 18. Then, click on the year you actually turned 18. Paste the songs into your blog. Then, edit them: the ones you liked put in bold type, the ones you didn't like mark through, the ones you were neutral about put in italics, and the ones you don't know leave unedited. (but, I'm putting a question mark beside them like Nicole did)

I clicked on the PopMusic button and clicked on the hits for the year I turned 18 and got a longer list of songs, so that's what I am using. They are listed as the greatest hits of that year.

And, I must preface this by saying: Don't laugh at the songs I liked. Cut me some slack. I was only 18. Also, I haven't looked at the list yet. I probably won't know that many songs and the ones I do know I probably won't like. I was a Led Zeppelin/Jimi Hendrix/Aerosmith/Grateful Dead kind of girl in high school.

but... but... i LOVED do the bartman. i had the entire simpsons sing the blues album.

in fact, when i was in the 5th grade, we made a music video of "you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't" in TAG class.

hmm... maybe i shouldn't be publicly admitting this?

If I had been in 5th grade when Do the Bartman came out, I may have liked it too.

But, as a senior in high school, not so much.
