Thursday Thirteen # 27: Billboard #1 Hits

Got this idea for this week's TT from Gina's blog... and I decided to tag myself.

The rules of the game:

  1. Go to
  2. Select the year you turned 18
  3. Get all nostalgic over the hit songs of the year
  4. Write about it
  5. Pass this tag onto 5 others

The songs from your era are on the whole better than the songs from my era.

It's a good idea for a meme, even if it is sort of generation-specific. I do remember the Bangles and Belinda Carlisle but I'm a Seventies person myself...

What a great meme. I love it. I'm going to try it too. Well, not today, but soon. Have a great TT. :)

What a wonderful meme! I love music and I love feeling nostalgic when I listen to music from the past.

The songs in your list and in Gina's blog tells me how old I am ... they were songs I listened to when I was about to go to law school after 5 years of teaching! :P
