I remember listening to an awlful lot of cassettes back then...now I recall why! Oh, and to further nauseate the masses, the theme song for my Prom was none other than Almost Paradise, by Mike Reno and Ann Wilson!

Ack!

Dear Yibbyl,

People get the music they deserve... During the Reagan Era, the alzheimer's had come to the forefront earlier than originally understood.

Sincerely,

DS

I am trying to interpret your system; Strikeouts are the songs you hated, plain text are OK, underlined you liked a little more, bold are the ones you really liked. Is that correct?

If so, boo on you for dumping on 2 of the 3 Duran² tunes. ;)

Oh - but what are the tunes in italics?

8:34 AM  
Blogger Yibbyl said...

Oops! Looks like I forgot the "rules"! So...

You bold the ones you like, underline your favorites, strike through the ones you loathe, and italicize the ones you can't remember. No opinion? Just leave it alone.

Thanks for the heads up, Peter.
