How to do a meme and ensure it become a real dud of a post.

1. Go to popculturemadness.com and select the year (in the left sidebar) you turned 18.

2. Paste the list of the top 75 songs.

3. Bold the ones you liked; strike the ones you disliked; and italicize the ones you knew but didn’t exactly like or dislike. The ones you don’t know will stay plain text.

4. Badger did this to show what a suckful year 1984 was and I’m doing it to say, “Badge, I see your 1984 and raise you 1990.” It also shows how woeful my memory, interest and following of music is.

    See, I think 1984 was a good year for music IF YOU WERE TWELVE. But not 18.

    Yours kind of sucks too, though. I guess 1990 was a good year for hip-hop or something. I’m pretty sure I was holed up with my Ramones cassettes that whole year.

    I love music from all eras- it is the sountrack of my life.
    BUT 1990 must have been my year of sleeping- thank goodness!
    The ‘music’ was abysmal!

    OMG, did we really listen to Jive Bunny? And like it? OMG.

    You are right, that year sucks for sure.

    I do know more of the songs than you have indicated you know, but they still sucked. No real classics that year.

    Unless you include Jive Bunny “swing the mood”. OMG

  • h&b

    Man, you don’t like the music much, do you ? 😉

    I refuse to do these things, because they’re mainly American .. and as I spent my 18th year in the U.S., I know how shite the radio stations are there ..

    At 18, I knew all the songs everywhere, as I was going to be the next Glenn A. Baker.

    How embarrassment.

    I was wondering why you were doing this based on the USA music charts…

    For real? You didn’t know the Lambada? Somehow, that makes you actually very cool.
    I looked through this list and realised I had A LOT of it on 12″ vinyl. Yes, actual vinyl. I was such a DJ wannabe. This list actually would make a good reunion “mix tape” for me and my friends. Although “Opposites Attract – Paula Abdul” would definitely be left off!
