Dang, you're a young ONE!!!!!

Heart of Rachel said...

Some of those songs bring back fond memories, particularly the songs of Mariah and Toni Braxton.

Meloncutter said...

Dang... Were most of those entertainers even alive in 1977 when I was listening to the music?

Good Post.

Later Y'all.

Desert Songbird said...

You know, I love you, Tisha, but I don't think I could find a likable song on your list. I'm a 70s and 80s rock 'n roller myself.

Ian Thomas Healy said...

You know what's sad? I graduated in 1990 and I only recognize one of those songs. My musical tastes moved into alternative when I went to college.


Gattina said...

I probably knew these songs but I never pay attention to the singer's name or the title of the song, lol !

Roger said...

Hey what happen to your lap top?

Bubba's Sis said...

My, you ARE young! :-)

Harlekwin said...

I was getting ready to celebrate my 20th class reunion the year you graduated... dang, I'm feeling really old.

Bone Thugs? Really? I don't think I've encountered a musical act that offended me quite as much as they did. Yeah, I'm old and getting older.

Happy MM!!

Star8278 said...

Great list. I graduated in 96 too. I remember these songs well.

Have a great day.

girlymom said...

Thankgoodness! Someone else who graduated in 1996! Seems everyone else I know is about 10 years older!

The Macarena- good times! It's funny to see other versions of it now.

Rebecca said...

And I sang "because you loved me" to my mom at my high school graduation. :)

Cheerio said...

Macarena is really a great music. It is so lively and makes you feel like dancing when you hear it. Can't avoid moving your body along with the music.

Matt-Man said...

Mmmmmm Toni Braxton. Be still my heart. Cheers!!

the teach said...

You graduated high school in 1996? OMG! Like Lois says "Dang, you're a young one!"

All great songs,though!

Baby got em up open all over town"

Oh, how I (still) love "No Diggity"!
Great choice for this week´s theme, Tish!

Marilyn said...

I'm closer to your age, but I recognize more of Sarge's songs... I think that was the year I went to Grad school, and I was too distracted to pay attention to music.

Travis said...

This is bad...I don't recognize any of the songs on that list other than Macarena.

**goes to the corner and pouts**

That girl said...

I didn't know you were younger than me too!! That is so depressing.

By the way, it's Michelle from One Full House, just changed the display name to "that girl"...

Cheryl Wray said...

oh boy...the Macarena!!!! that brings back some memories!!

And you are just a BABY...I graduated in 1986!

Great idea for a list!!!

Titania Starlight said...

This is horrid but I do not recongnize any of those songs. Eeeekkk! I am so old! I graduated in 85'. :o)

Amazing Gracie said...

Okay, make me feel like an over-the-hill washed up old broad, why doncha???
Ick, the Macarena...that's the only one I recognize although I do know the names of most of the groups.
I could probably sing all of the songs Sarge listed...know 'em all!

katherine. said...

I do like all of these songs...but I was just a bit onlder then....

Mo said...

Like many others, the only one on the list I recognized was the Macarena, you young whipper-snapper!
