Stolen from Dylan...

Over at Coffee House Banter:

Go to, click on the decade you turned 18, find the actual year you turned 18 and copy the top songs for that year and paste.

Then bold the ones you liked, strikeout the ones you hated and italicize the ones about which you were neutral. The ones you’ve never heard will stay unformatted.

I'm going to do the Top twenty:

1. What Is Love - Haddaway
2. Come Baby Come - K7
3. Hero - Mariah Carey
4. In The Still Of The Night (I'll Remember) - Boyz II Men
5. Have I Told You Lately - Rod Stewart
6. Can't Help Falling In Love - UB40
7. Dreamlover - Mariah Carey
8. Supermodel (You Better Work) - RuPaul
9. Nuthin' But A "G" Thang - Dr. Dre
10. Cryin' - Aerosmith
11. Murder She Wrote - Chaka Demus and Pliers
12. Shoop - Salt N Pepa
13. A Whole New World - Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle
14. Show Me Love - Robin S
15. I'm So Into You - SWV
16. Hip Hop Hooray - Naughty By Nature
17. Rhythm Is A Dancer - Snap!
18. All that She Wants - Ace Of Base
19. When I Fall In Love - Celine Dion & Clive Griffin
20. Hey Mr. D.J. - Zhane

I'm not sure how this list was compiled. I remember most of these songs, but I thought that some were later. I think my 31 y.o. self is influencing my opinions, because my 18 y.o. self wouldn't have liked as many of these songs. I was more of a WLIR girl than a Z100 gal. Fun walk down memory lane.

God the eighties sucked, especially 1982. There wasn't a single song on the list that I liked. I'm so much more a child of the 70s. Funk and classic rock is more my groove.
