FFM (Saturday Edition)
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 12:27 pm

OK, yesterday and two weeks ago Friday, I simply got too busy to remember the FFM. Last Friday, in wake of Katrina, an FFM didn’t seem appropriate. However, since one reader noticed its absence, and I would hate to dissapoint (and because I enjoy the FFM), here’s this week’s Friday Fun Meme a day late (and I will eventually get back on track, hopefully next Friday).

This a borrowed meme via AWS, The Public Brewery, ASV and elsewhere, here’s the:

The Year I Graduated HS Top 1oo Meme:

I am going to alter the instructions slightly:

First, go here, then type the year you graduated from HS into the search bar.

Then, code the entries as follows:

  • Bold equals “I woudn’t automatically change the station if it came on the radio.
  • Strikethrough means “I might break my finger trying to change the station once I figured out which song it was.
  • Bolded Italics means “Not only would I turn it up, I own it on CD or as an MP3″
  • Do nothing to entries you don’t remember, or have no response to (and, I will grant, there are several I would put in the strikethrough category just by reading the song title and/or the artist, but since I don’t remember them, I left them alone).

    You may note overall favorites or other commentary at the bottom.

    1. Hey, you have the same year I had! I have to say, though, that the Italics only doesn’t really differentiate them from the rest. Maybe italics AND bold to show the ones you own.

      I would note, however, that your tastes seemed to be much more mainstream than mine, although dire straits was good all around. ;-)

    2. You are a college professor, and you are younger than me!


      Oh, well… I *could* have been a college professor, I just decided I was shallow and liked money.

    4. Bryan–Good point and suggestion–fixed.

      And Jack–not only that, but I’ve even reached tenure ;)

      Comment by Dr. Steven Taylor — Saturday, September 10, 2024 @ 2:35 pm

    5. It’s amazing how few songs I own from my senior year. It will take me a while to go through and code the list. :)

    6. Friday’s Fun Meme: the Saturday Edition on Sunday

      I will confess that I have missed the Friday Fun Meme from Poliblog, though I certainly understand the reasons for its absence the last few weeks.
      Nevertheless, the Sultan has re-instituted the FFM this week, though a day late, so here we go:

    7. Songs from 1989

      Dr. Taylor has challenged me to categorize the top 100 songs from the year I graduated high school. That’ll teach me to ask for a Friday Fun Meme
