There were some really good drugs floatin' around in '79 is all I can say.
Either that ...or everybody was hypnotized by the Disco ball and lava lamps in their bedrooms.

Oh, your list. I liked some of the top 10 and hated others. I didn't care for Awful One. I liked John Micheal Montgomery better. Those cats just copied everybody else's songs. Secada and Vanessa were good. Kriss Kross was stupid, but I still say their phrase sometimes. I like Boys II Men. Mix-A-Lot's song was OK. En Vogue looked GOOD in their video. I always said Clapton wasn't going to heaven, anyway! :p

I used to have the tape and I even bought a remix tape back in the day. Actually, I found the CD for a dollar sometime in 1996 or 1997 and decided to buy it.

I bought New Kids on the Block stuff for my friend as a joke and ended up keeping it!

To finish off the trifecta, I get a kick out of the Village People's Greatest Hits. It's 12 songs with the same beat as YMCA with different words! :D

I just have unusual taste. I did like some of Paula Abdul's songs and I'm surprised that I have 10 CD's that cover those top 100 songs. That means I bought CD's later on from the same year I graduated school and didn't know they were all from the same year.

I remember when I played football...every now and then when I scored me and one of my team mates would do the "Milli Vanilli" in the endzone.
You know when they used to stomp real hard in place and jump up and bump chests? That was soooo gay now that I think of it.

Boy, as soon as I say 1989 is the best ever, 1990 comes out with a bang. These are some of my all-time favorites, too! :D The list will keep getting shorter. If nothing else, I started listening to these type of songs less.

OK, here's the deal. I'm curious and think 1989 is the best year ever. I'm going to look back at the other years and let you know what I think is the best music year EVER!

OK Lonnie - put down the DP and come to your senses. :) Yes, 1989 was better than the late 70's - but c'mon -- who can't sing the lyrics to every top song from 1968, 69 or 70 -- even the kids these days know the music to most Beatles songs.

Folks, I enjoyed my stroll down memory lane. I reaffirmed that the 80's were my favorite musical decade and the 2000's are my new worst decade. The 90's steadily got worse and the 60's and 70's were stronger than I remembered.

I was stationed in Va. Beach in '99...and I swear they played
La Vida Loca 1 billion times that summer....I was Livin' la vida puka...
Did you ever notice his other songs at that time had the same beat? :D It's like listening to the Village People's Greatest Hits! :p

Lonny......surely you are not trying to say the music of the late 80's was better than the music of the 60's.

Dude it ain't even close...

Elvis Presley
The Beach Boys
Motown..(too many to name)
Hendrix
Jefferson Airplane
The Rolling Stones
Bob Dylan
The FREAKIN' Beatles
The Who
Otis Redding
Aretha Franklin
Sam Cooke

C'mon Lonny...you can't be serious.

OK,

Elvis is great, but I like the musical sounds of the 80's. You can see I like the Beach Boys a LOT. I like some of the motown artists, but not like the 80's. I don't care for Hendrix, The Who, most of the Rolling Stones and Beatles, and some of the others you listed. I liked Starship more than Jefferson Airplane. I like 50's music, too, but it's not my favorite period.

1960 was the first year I could choose for the Top 100. Otherwise, I would've listed other years, too.

You like Starship over Airplane?
Are you smokin' dope Lonny?
You would take...."We built this city"
over "Go ask Alice"
c'mon dawg....you're trippin'..........
Starship was a sellout thing...Grace Slick and the boys
were trying to fit into a genre that had long ago forgot about them...
they were a shell of their former selves..

Yes, I like "We Built This City" in spite of it being voted one of the worst songs ever. I like "Nothing's Going To Stop Us Now" even more. That's a real good song. I've never even heard of "Go Ask Alice."

My goodness, what year did YOU graduate? Swanee was released in 1920. Damn that would make you about 112 years old. :rolleyes:
Although I really do like some of those songs, especially Blue Yodel by Jimmy Rodgers

Wow, top 10 for 1974 was horrible. No wonder I had moved away from mainstream Pop by then.

1. The Way We Were - Memories, Barbra Streisand
2. Seasons In the Sun, Terry Jacks
3. Love's Theme, Love Unlimited Orchestra
4. Come and Get Your Love, Redbone
5. Dancing Machine, The Jackson 5
6. The Loco-Motion, Grand Funk Railroad
7. T.S.O.P. (The Sound of Philadelphia), MFSB
8. The Streak, Ray Stevens
9. Bennie and the Jets, Elton John
10. One Hell of a Woman, Mac Davis

Some of the better one's on that list....

17. Rock On, David Essex
24. Time In a Bottle, Jim Croce
44. Smokin' In the Boys Room, Brownsville Station
45. Living for the City, Stevie Wonder
50. The Air That I Breathe, The Hollies
63. Takin' Care of Business, Bachman-Turner Overdrive
72. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Elton John


Yes, 1974 sucked for Top 40 Pop music.

No wonder why I was listening to Led Zepplin, Lynnrd Skynnrd, Ted Nugent, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, The Who, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Yes, Emerson-Lake-Palmer...... better tunes than the Top 40 stuff....especially better than Disco.
