25 yrs of singing out loud....

When did I get old? When did that happen? Not that I feel particularly old, but when I saw a list of hits from the past 25 yrs ago I was startled to see that 25 yrs ago started in 1982 and not 1962......

So, I present: 25 years of songs, som of which I have sung along to out loud (at least when alone......)

1982: “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” - Love that one!
1983: “Every Breath You Take” Will always be known to me as the "stalker song".
1984: “Against All Odds” ....mmm.. "take a look at me noooooow...."
1985:”Money For Nothing” Ahh, the year I started watching MTV.
1986:”That’s What Friends Are For” am embarrassed to say I know this one...
1987:”I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
1988: "Don’t Worry, Be Happy” cue cheerful whistling
1989:”Like a Prayer” Hated the video for this.
1990:”Ice, Ice Baby” Made me gain weight... "Vanilla Ice?..mmm let me check the freezer..."
1991:”Everything I Do I Do it For You” Loved it then, love it now.
1992:” Jump” Always liked a bit of Van Halen
1993:”I Will Always Love You”
1994:”I Swear” I'll pass on the Boyz ll Men, thank-you.
1995:”Have You Really Ever Loved a Woman” Can't remember (the SONG)
1996:”Macarena” danced to this on my hen's night
1997:”Candle In the Wind” sorry Marilyn - Diana hi-jacked this one.
1998:”I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” Fave Aerosmith song by default since it's the only one I know
1999:” Livin’ La Vida Loca” If you don't know this one, it was popular while you were on that deserted island. Personally, I was looking for an island so deserted that I wouldn't hear this.
2000:”Say My Name”
2001:”Bootylicious” And this is where we lose me. Apparently I turned off my radio in 2001 and never went back. Possibly because I had little children?
2002:”Lose Yourself” I did....... more children!
2003:”Crazy in Love”- What?
2004:”Yeah” Huh?
2005″We Belong Together” Sounds nice, couldn't place it.
2006:”Bad Day”-?? Probably had a couple that year.....
2007:”Umbrella” Really? A number one hit this year? Wishful thinking for a country in drought..

How did you go?


  1. I love this entry. I could be found singing lots of these songs. Actually a lot of them are on my iTunes and I still love them.

  2. I fell off a year before you...
