Posted while watching the SG-1 Fan Favorite Marathon. Woo!

Because (1) It's been way to long since I posted, and (2) I'm so proud of him for coming out as such a strong opponent against idiotarianism, I'm going to follow Sean's lead and take a plunge into the Songs-That-Came-Out-My-Senior-Year-In-High-School Meme. But only 50, not the full 100. Cause I know you people like me and think I'm fairly interesting, but I'm not going to push my luck.

Here's the way you play:
1) Go to and, in the search box provided, enter the year you graduated high school.
2) From the search results, click the link for the top 100 songs of that year. [Or 50]
3) With the resulting list:
a) bold the songs you like [Sean's definition (which I'm adopting): I'm going to define 'like' as 'i'd listen to it if it came on the radio and not change the channel]
b) strike through the ones you hate (html code is "strike" inside the brackets)
c) underline your favorite
d) and ignore the ones you don't remember/don't care about.

I'm in the class of '93.
1. I Will Always Love You, Whitney Houston
And IIIIIIIIIII-eyyiiiiiii will always hate this soooooooongggggggg

2. Whoomp! (There It Is), Tag Team
This is the 1993 equivalent to "Who let the dogs out?" kind of song.

3. Can't Help Falling In Love, UB40
I think this list is going to indicate fairly quickly that I am a certain kind of romantic. Cause while I hate #1, I really like this song. Really alot.

4. That's The Way Love Goes, Janet Jackson
5. Freak, Silk
6. Weak, SWV
7. If I Ever Fall In Love, Shai
8. Dreamlover, Mariah Carey
9. Rump Shaker, Wreckx-N-Effect
10. Informer, Snow
11. Nuthin' But A "G" Thang, Dr. Dre
Don't remember this at all. I'm just striking it out on principle.

12. In The Still Of The Nite, Boyz II Men
See? I really like this one too.

13. Don't Walk Away, Jade
14. Knockin' Da Boots, H-Town
Yeah, there were some real winners this year.

15. Lately, Jodeci
16. Dazzey Duks, Duice
A definite winner. I want to dance just hearing it in my head.

17. Show Me Love, Robin S.

18. A Whole New World, Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle
There were some girls I knew at Davidson (one of whose initials are "K" and "S"), who watched this movie ALOT. Because I'm a sensitive guy, I watched it along with them ALOT-1 times. I'll be happy never to hear it again. [Update: (in response to a certain commenter) Where ALOT = 2.]

19. If, Janet Jackson
20. I'm So Into You, SWV
21. Love Is, Vanessa Willlams and Brian Mcknight
22. Runaway Train, Soul Asylum
Great song. Even better, if very very sad, music video.

23. I'll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me), Expose
24. Ditty, Paperboy
25. Rhythm Is A Dancer, Snap
Truer words were never sung to a super cool backbeat.

26. The River Of Dreams, Billy Joel
Not a fan of BJ.

27. I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), Proclaimers
28. Two Princes, Spin Doctors
Ooooooh! Two good ones! I danced many a night away at Sig Ep to these two songs. [Update: Cause, just like Sean, I forgot to underline my favorite.]

29. Right Here (Human Nature)-Downtown, SWV
30. I Have Nothing, Whitney Houston
31. Mr. Wendal, Arrested Development
32. Have I Told You Lately, Rod Stewart
I agree with you, Sean.

33. Saving Forever For You, Shanice
34. Ordinary World, Duran Duran
Too bad the Duran Duran comeback didn't make it.

35. If I Had No Loot, Tony! Toni! Tone!
36. I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That), Meat Loaf
I do not understand the fascination with Meat Loaf. His name should be Meat Lame.

37. Slam, Onyx
One of the all time great Let's-Get-Hype! songs.

38. Looking Through Patient Eyes, P.M. Dawn
39. I'm Every Woman, Whitney Houston
Sheesh. She was having a banner year.

40. Baby I'm Yours, Shai
41. Come Undone, Duran Duran
42. I Don't Wanna Fight, Tina Turner
43. I'd Die Without You, P.M. Dawn
44. Whoot, There It Is, 95 South
45. Hip Hop Hooray, Naughty By Nature
Sig Ep. Dance Floor. Impressing the Ladies. Moi.

46. Another Sad Love Song, Toni Braxton
47. Will You Be There, Michael Jackson
48. Comforter, Shil
49. Good Enough, Bobby Brown
50. What's Up, 4 Non Blondes
