You know, I usually think of myself as a music type. That's why I was a little surprised to see this list and how many songs I DON'T recognize from the past 25 years. Seriously.
I'm even more stunned that the past 25 years starts in 1982. I thought surely we were talking about the 60's or something. Sheesh! when did I get old?
How many of the songs on the list can you remember?
1982: “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” Love that one
1983: “Every Breath You Take” Will always be known to me as the "stalker song".
1984: “Against All Odds” This was the year I got married. Seems fitting!
1985:”Money For Nothing” Ahh the heyday of MTV.
1986:”That’s What Friends Are For” Check
1987:”I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” Check
1988:”"Don’t Worry, Be Happy” Never did like the song, but I've heard it.
1989:”Like a Prayer” Check
1990:”Ice, Ice Baby” Oh, don't start that thing going around in my head!
1991:”Everything I Do I Do it For You” Loved it then, love it now.
1992:” Jump” I like VanHalen more now than I did then.
1993:”I Will Always Love You” The song was a bit mushy for me. Never saw the movie.
1994:”I Swear” I'll pass on the Boyz ll Men, thank-you.
1995:”Have You Really Ever Loved a Woman” Don't recall (the SONG, people)
1996:”Macarena” If you actually translate the words to this, it's not nearly as much fun.
1997:”Candle In the Wind” Well, I did get up in the night to watch Diana's funeral.
1998:”I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” Best Aerosmith song ever.
1999:” Livin’ La Vida Loca”, If you don't know this one, it was popular while you were living on that deserted island.
2000:”Say My Name” check
2001:”Bootylicious”, And this is where we lose me. Apparently I turned off my radio in 2001 and never went back. Seriously, I think this was about the year I made the move to talk radio.
2002:”Lose Yourself”, no idea
2003:”Crazy in Love”- What?
2005″We Belong Together”, Sounds nice, couldn't place it.
2007:”Umbrella” Really? The number one hit of this year?
Excuse me while I crawl back under my rock. That bright sun is kind of hurting my eyes.
