I Palindrome I

Ellen Aim has tagged me once again. We'll be going back...back...back to the year 1991. Whoa, I'm feeling just a little like I should have some grey hairs.

1. Go to

2. Pick the year you turned 18

3. Get yourself nostalgic over the songs of the year

4. Write something about how the song affected you

5. Pass it on to 5 more friends


1. Unforgettable - Nat and Natalie Cole

Really? Well, okay, cool. It sure wasn't on any radio station I listened to, though...

2. Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince
3. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You - Bryan Adams
4. Gonna Make You Sweat - C + C Music Factory
5. More Than Words - Extreme
6. O.P.P. - Naughty By Nature
7. True Companion - Marc Cohn
8. Good Vibrations - Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch
9. Strike It Up - Black Box
10. Power of Love/Love Power - Luthor Vandross

I don't know most of these songs, but I sort of like #3 in a "Oh my gosh, did I just admit that to the world?" kind of way. Actually, that is the ONLY song I recognize.

11. Its So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday - Boys II Men
12. Enter Sandman - Metallica
13. Motownphilly - Boys II Men
14. Crazy - Seal
15. God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood
16. Unbelievable - EMF
17. Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless) - Crystal Waters
18. Lets Talk About Sex - Salt N Pepa

Wow, 1991 sort of sucked, didn't it? At least Metallica is on there. I had to listen to that song on iTunes because I haven't listened to Metallica in ages. I actually like Metallica when I am in the right mood, but I've already confessed to that earlier, I believe. Ah, Flying Tomato, you shall be missed!

19. Black Or White - Michael Jackson
20. It Ain't Over Till It's Over - Lenny Kravitz
21. When A Man Loves A Woman - Michael Bolton
22. Here We Go - C+C Music Factory
23. P.A.S.S.I.O.N. - Rythm Syndicate
24. Star Spangled Banner - Whitney Houston
25. Coming Out Of The Dark - Gloria Estefan
26. Wind Of Change - Scorpions
27. Things That Make You Go Hmmmm... - C+C Music Factory
28. Emotions - Mariah Carey
29. I've Been Thinking About You - Londonbeat

There's just nothing here. I guess I just didn't have the radio on. Thank goodness.

46. I Touch Myself - Divinyls

I. Hate. That. Divinyls. Song.

51. Justify My Love - Madonna

Okay, I actually like Madonna. So sue me.

56. I Wanna Sex You Up - Color Me Badd

Dark days, the early 90s.

61. Losing My Religion - R.E.M.

Finally! An awesome song. I feel better now.

66. Kiss Them For Me - Siouxsie & The Banshees

And again. Big sigh of relief. I don't feel totally lost anymore.

71. Wicked Game - Chris Isaak

Chris Isaak is only #71? What. Ever.

73. Do The Bartman - The Simpsons
74. Shiny Happy People - R.E.M.

Okay, so we'll end on a positive note!

I tag Triana and Lone Star Ma. If you would like to participate, please do!

I'm gonna try, but 1990 totally blew for good songs. Like you list, I hardly recognize anything! It's just weird. I think I must have just listened solely to the tapes you made for me.

But first...I have to work on a presentation. UG.

Ellen Aim said...

omg, 1991 really blew. Not as badly as 1997, but pretty dang close.

I like "I Touch Myself!"

catchy. *blushes*

Veloute said...

You know, 1990 actually looked a bit better. Had some Depeche Mode, even.

I used to like that Divinyls song. I think? I just heard it WAY too many times. I don't need to hear it ever again.

Lone Star Ma said...

Well, I'd like to participate, but my lousy browser won't load the page - it is even get persnickety about your blog recently. I really need a new computer.

I think I mostly listened to just Joan Jett and funky Celtic music and show tunes when I was 18 anyway.
