I’m guessing we should be putting albums in here, not songs, right?

1. Huey Lewis and the News – Sports
5. Pearl Jam – Ten
9. The Beatles – Abbey Road (but you could say Aerosmith, too)
10. Dire Straits – Brothers in Arms
18. The Cars – Heartbreak City

I’m much worse at this than I thought I was.

Umm… you know… I *was* going to post the ones that I knew here.

But now? I kinda just don’t want to embarrass myself! Haha

So, I’m going to slink off into my “Clearly Ignorant to the 80s” hole and give myself a stern talking to! It just doesn’t pay to simply like a song anymore… ya gotta know the name of it, dad gummit!

Oh right. I was going to do that alone.

Annnyway. I love the twist you put on this, Shiny. Good job!

And to all of you who are Much Better At This: best of luck! 😉

PS: I think Hilly spanked all of ya, lol. 🙂

Grrrr! I read this post last night on my phone and I can’t comment from my phone. Therefore, I’m really late to this party.

Now if I try to play along it will feel like when your hubby buys you flowers because yesterday you told him, “you never buy me flowers anymore.” It’s still nice, but not the same. Do you have the same problems with your hubby? Or is just me?

In any event, I’m stealing this idea from you and your post from the other day, the things that you think are overrated. Yep, I’m stealing both of those ideas for posts of my own.

Will that get me a special prize or something?? 🙂

And PS- “He got the action, he got the motion — yeah, the boy can play…” Ever since I read that, that song as been stuck in my head. It was there when I went to sleep and it was there when I woke up. Thanks for that.

WOOHOO FOR THE FRAGILE!

I liked a lot of your picks and loved the twist you put on it. For me, however, I suck at remembering album names. I can sing most of these songs… the parts you listed. And that’s good enough for me.
