OK,at number one, I stopped reading and DISOWNED YOU ENTIRELY!!!!!

Aug. 19th, 2005 12:58 pm (UTC)
Also, awwww. Thinking about PM Dawn just sets me adrift on memory bliss.
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:03 pm (UTC)
Also, I really love a lot of these songs. Oh, 1993!
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:47 pm (UTC)
I totally bought that song off itunes last night while doing this meme.
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:07 pm (UTC)
93 was the ish.
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:14 pm (UTC)
Wow, I was in the class of '93 too. I forgot what crappy songs were popular then.
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:15 pm (UTC)
I looked at doing this once. It's impossible, though, because there are so many songs there that I "love" in that they make me feel nostalgic and that totally suck because they have no musical quality to them at all. In other words, I would change the channel immediately if they came out now, but will sing along with them because they came out that year.

Come on, Patric Swayze singing? Bleh!!!

I'm pretty sure I was just listening to like, Crowded House and the Church tapes when I graduated from high school. I was not nearly the pop music aficianado I am today! So I can safely ignore them.

And I am a BIG fan of terrible music, I swear!
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:28 pm (UTC)
i thought of this FIRST. im just busy. ;)
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:50 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry you're busy!
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:06 pm (UTC)
don't be! its why they pay me after all :)
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:31 pm (UTC)
hehehe, I like so many from your list :) hehehe
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:37 pm (UTC)
Not like I did the last one, but after reading through your song list, I KNOW I don't need ot bother with this one. Wow, that's a bunch of crap!. And you struck thorugh the song I would've underlined...
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:38 pm (UTC)
I suppose it's o.k, cause I would've struck through yours.
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:53 pm (UTC)
Yet still we get along. It's a christmas miracle!
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:50 pm (UTC)
Let me guess, it was Rod Stewart?
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:53 pm (UTC)

Aug. 19th, 2005 02:05 pm (UTC)
You're a hateful, hateful person...
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, yay! I like this one a lot better.
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:16 pm (UTC)
Damn it, snidegrrl, how could you hate Runaway Train?!
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:21 pm (UTC)
Countless whiny undergrads singing along with it my freshman year.
Aug. 19th, 2005 04:33 pm (UTC)
Honey, I am from MN and I hate that band almost more than any other. *puke*
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
No point in me doing it, since you've already answered exactly the same way. :)
Aug. 19th, 2005 04:21 pm (UTC)
I hearby declare it all your fault.
Somehow, most of my music doesn't suck.
Aug. 19th, 2005 05:43 pm (UTC)
My God. Pop music was so wretched when we graduated. No wonder I spent so much time avoiding top-40 stations.

I've got several favorite Proclaimers songs, strangely, and I liked the Sting songs. And, um, the Meatloaf song was really funny, especially the gothic video . . . Crap. I think I'm done.

As for Whiny Houston: much talent, but too interested in showing off vocal gymnastics than in letting the loveliness of a song shine through. I have always found it horrifying that she took a relatively quiet, almost elegant song by Dolly Parton, tortured it, ground it up, chewed it, and then sprayed it all over the charts, AND WE STILL CAN'T ESCAPE THE CARNAGE. Damn, I'd rather listen to "My Heart Will Go On" . . .

No. No, actually, I wouldn't. Although hearing them back to back would probably make me take a bullet (or jump in an ocean) myself.

In a similar style
Ha! I'd never heard that term, but it's perfect.

Y'know, speaking of singers who wring songs to death . . . It was that same year (or close) that my roommate subjected me to multiple consecutive listenings of Michael Bolton's "White Christmas."

In March.

See, this is why I can't get into high school nostalgia based movies and TV programs.

"Rhythm Is A Dancer" rulez. I remember hearing it on my way past New York on the drive up to Boston to go to a scifi/fantasy con where I was going to show off my new laser show stuff. It was one of first pop songs highly influenced by techno, and I was in the process of catching big time rave fever.
