Now I have to navigate to Napster and listen to 867-5309 and then pay for it. Damn you! :)

Dammit, your list is better than mine, too! Curse you, 1984!
You would be shocked to learn how many of the songs on your list I owned on 45. Or maybe you wouldn't.
Holy crap, my WVW is chubwm. Even the internet thinks I'm fat.

I'm an enabler. Sue me.
1984 is no 1982, but it's a'ight. Could be worse. coulda been 1975 or something.

Have you made any distinction between hated them at the time or hate them now? There's a few on that list that I didn't mind at the time but I look at now with horror.

A very few have migrated from neutral to dislike or, less likely, from like to neutral.

I hate it when everybody's younger than me.
And when their years have better songs.
But I love it when they don't complain that I steal their memes.

I only had children so I could have people my own age with whom to play.

We're the same year! I'm going to have to do this too, though I HATE memes in general.
But... I'm astounded that you've never heard of The Message, or Streisand's Memory (quite envious of that one actually!), or even George Benson. I used to listen to Casey Kasem's (sp?) American Top 40 every Sunday night on a local radio station. There was a LOT of crap around back then!

Oops, I read that you were 1984 but that was Badger. Must go and check my year.

I had a full comment forulatated, & blogger decided to eat it.Crap!
I enjoyed this trip down memory lane, but it reminded me how old I am. Bummer.
Good memories though, & some I would rather forget!!?

OH crap, it decided to publish the munted version... what else could I expect!

The reason why I had never heard that excresence by Streisand or George Benson (which might've been palatable) is, quite simply, because I didn't listen to those radio stations.
I still don't.
At the time I was caught up in a New Wave reverie, around which orbited some Power Pop, Ska, Rockabilly and all their attendant influences. A guy who listens to Agent Orange in 1982 is not a guy who listens to La Streisand.
At least not without some expectation of some white-clad gentlemen who show up to give him one-way passage aboard the Disoriented Express.
P.S. Meggie, if it's any consolation, I've been feeling this way since I was 21.

I checked my year, and almost all the songs sucked. The list doesn't even get interesting till #11, Better Man by Pearl Jam. Dave Matthews Band is on the list twice - yay - but the BEST song of that year came in last - Adam Ant's Wonderful.

Wow, Tere...you ARE right. Bad, bad, bad year for music.
(Memo to Badger: Count your blessings.)
Very, very bad year.
