Music Meme I Can Actually Answer

This is making the rounds on LiveJournal, and since I don't blog things like that there, I'm doing it here. Ain't ya glad?

The idea is to find the top songs from this site for the year you graduated high school or turned 18, and indicate which you liked and which you didn't like. Simple, huh? I graduated high school in 1970, a month after I turned 17.

Elsewhere in my music, Pandora has finally added songs by Jay and the Americans to their music library, so now I can hear the rich tones of the younger Jay Black of my youth on my Pandora Rockin' Variety station. Coolness.

Worked today, lunch with my father and his ladyfriend, nice weather, nice day.
