What a cool idea! Now I'm going to be humming these songs for days!
Destiny Anne said…
hey! i like i will survive by gloria gaynor! even though i hadn't been born yet. here via michele.
Yaeli said…
You don't like boogie wonderland??!! So much for being a liberated child of the 60's! :o)
Michael Manning said…
Michele sent me! Hello!! Good memories of Al Stewart on "Time Passages" during a date!
utenzi said…
Hi Yaeli, Anne, and Robin. True, I'm no liberated child of the 60s. Never had that mindset--and I was born early enough to despise disco when it first hit pop culture. I will Survive has a strange charm as does Ring my Bell--but Boogie Wonderland is just ANNOYING! LOL
utenzi said…
Hey Michael. I love Al Stewart. Time Passages is just one of 100s of songs of his that I could listen to over and over.
Yaeli said…
I notice you didn't highlight any of the Village People songs either!!! You've ignored all the party classics and gone for Bob Seeger and Barry Manilow!?

BTW, flattery gets you anywhere! :o)
Teresa said…
I'll have to check this out later, but I wonder where I was in the last 70's -- well, I know where I was; I just wonder why I can't recall what some of these songs even are. Some that I do remember, I know I have on albums somewhere. Thanks for the journey down memory lane....
utenzi said…
If only you didn't live on the other side of the world, Yaeli. Ships passing in the night and all that. ;-)

Teresa! Are you one of those Anne Rice type vampires? What is this about the last 70s? How many 70s decades have you lived through? (or is that unlived?) Please don't drink my blood--I only have so much of it and I am using it.
Blond Girl said…
Ooo! I have to do this! Thanks!

Michele sent me :-)
What ever happened to the great Nigel Olsson?
Oh I did his awhile back on my Livejournal. It reminded me that there was little to no good music in 1992.

Here via Michele! Have a lovely day.
Dave said…
that looks like fun, I'll have to try it for 1982

mooalex said…
Here from Michele! I liked your 1979 better than my 1982 (posting this weekend)!
utenzi said…
Thanks, LJ. I loved that site you mentioned was making the rounds,

It's very cute.

Dave! You and MooAlex are the same age.
Karen said…
Looks like a fun site!

Hello, Michele sent me.
Yaeli said…
You made me lie again! :o)

It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A...

Going to bed now before I go totally crazy.
Diane Mandy said…
I like your list! Much better than mine (1986 grad).... The 86 list features such classics as That's What Friends Are For" (ugh)PArty All the Time by Eddie Murphy (Ugh, ugh) and All Cried Out by Lisa Lisa (Ugh, Ugh, Ugh).
utenzi said…
Poor Yaeli. You must be tired--you've been working Michele's list for nearly 12 hours now! Get some sleep--after all, this is a 4 day weekend instead of the normal 3 so you have plenty of time. :-)
HF said…
I just burst out laughing when I saw the song, "Making It", by David Naughton. I used to love that song/show and had such a crush on him as a kid! I did the same meme the other day...1984.

Michele sent me.
deputyswife said…
Thanks for visiting my blog. Insect porn, I am really laughing here!

Nickle Annie said…
Ohhhh I love Heart of Glass!

by the way Michele sent me! :)
No_Newz said…
Nice picks! But I would have bolded a couple others. It wasn't a terribly crappy year. Just think of the kids today doing this MEME in a couple decades. hahaha!
Have a great weekend!

Jean-Luc Picard said…
Great list!

Here via Michele.

1979 was the year disco died. And it was a sudden and vicious send off. On the Billboard singles list, Good Times(#20 on this list) was the last #1 disco single followed by My Sharona and disco went away. The music didn't get better (Pina Colada Song anyone?), but it wasn't disco.
Superhero Bob said…
{{{blushing}}} I was like 3 years old in 79. I recognixed more names than I did songs.

Here from Michele's!!
Wickwire said…
Ah those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end. I like "I will Survive"
dena said…
very cool. I'll try it out when I get home tonight.

visiting from michele's
I come here to comment... I leave with earworms from the late 70's.

Thanks. ;-D

Hi, Michele sent me.
JC said…
Hi from Michele's. I too was a 1979. My favorite from around then was "I will survive" by Gloria Gainer. Least favorite from around that time was bungle in the jungle.
-E said…
HAHAHA great meme. Thanks for sharing it with all of us. And yeah, some real bad ones on that list hehe.

Michele sent me.
Cin said…
Great meme! Now I'll have to try that out.

The lovely Michele sent me, of course.

mercuryfern said…
This list is full of songs I adore mostly for their ironic value, and a few I really do like just for themselves. A live version of "I Want You to Want Me" was a source of endless amusement to my teenage mind.

Oh, and Michele sent me. Hours ago in fact, but my computer was having troubles.
