Make a list of your own

E had this link on her blog and I decided to play along. The ones in plain text I pretty much have no opinion about. I starred the ones I never knew. E will probably be reminding me that some of my starred songs I actually just don't remember.

One final point, the list is fucked because number 100 should certainly be number 1.

-Underline and bold your favorites
-Bold the ones you like
-Strikethru the ones you loathe (these would make terrific torture devices)
-Italicize the ones you consider to be guilty pleasures
-Leave as plain text, any you can’t remember or never knew

It's so nice to be able to learn something new about you all the time. The mystery continues...

YOU DIDN'T LIKE THE GO GO'S? That is seriously whack. Our Lips Are Sealed is an excellent song, missy.

#28 - Wheter you remember it or not you have to loathe it because it's Air Supply.

If you heard #12 (da da da da dum, da da da da dum), #17 (we had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall), #48 (young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side) would probably remember them. You might remember #45 too.

#19 - Really?

The go-gos top the list of tang, brussells sprouts and beets imho...

Number 19. Really.


Elizabeth said... don't like the Go-Gos but you think Eddie Anti-Christ-Biggest-Non-Talent-To-Ever-Have-A-Hit Money is a guilty pleasure.

That's just wrong.

Yet..I love you so much I can overlook these things. Talk knitting to me baby.

but isn't that why it is a *guilty* pleasure? Did I misunderstand this?
