Because I've Got Nothing Right Now

Let's do a little meme-ing. Music meme-ing, no less. Courtesy of Doug, we have this lovely meme: take the list from the year you graduated from high school then strike the songs you hate, bold the ones you love, and the ones left over are the ones you supposedly couldn't care less about.

Okedokey. I graduated in 1989. If you're interested, take the jump.

1. Look Away, Chicago (I can't even remember this song.)

2. My Prerogative, Bobby Brown (It's my perogative! It's the way that I wanna live! It's my per-rog-a-tive!)

3. Every Rose Has Its Thorn, Poison

4. Straight Up, Paula Abdul (I loved this video.)

5. Miss You Much, Janet Jackson

6. Cold Hearted, Paula Abdul(Again. Loved the video. It was HOT!)

7. Wind Beneath My Wings, Bette Midler

8. Girl You Know Its True, Milli Vanilli (Fakers!)

9. Baby, I Love Your Way/Freebird, Will To Power

10. Giving You The Best That I Got, Anita Baker

11. Right Here Waiting, Richard Marx (Not a bad song, per se, but radio killed any fondness I might have had for it when they overplayed it)

12. Waiting For A Star To Fall, Boy Meets Girl (Again with the overplay)

13. Lost In Your Eyes, Debbie Gibson {shudder}

14. Don't Wanna Lose You, Gloria Estefan

15. Heavan, Warrant (I generally despise Warrant)

18. She Drives Me Crazy, Fine Young Cannibals (I remember driving around Omaha and listening to this guy squeak out the lyrics. I still like it, too.)

19. On Our Own, Bobby Brown

20. Two Hearts, Phil Collins (This was the point in time where someone could have done the world a favor and offed Phil Collins. He'd outlived his usefulness by this point. It's definitely not In the Air.)

21. Blame It On The Rain, Milli Vanilli

22. Listen To Your Heart, Roxette

23. I'll Be There For You, Bon Jovi (I've always loathed Bon Jovi. Well, except for that "Wanted" song. But that's about it.)

27. How Can I Fall?, Breathe (I still have this tape somewhere)

28. Baby Don't Forget My Number, Milli Vanilli

29. Toy Solider, Martika

34. When I See You Smile, Bad English

35. If I Could Turn Back Time, Cher

78. All This Time, Tiffany (Tiffany deserves to be hated. Still.)
