Music ??? I doubt it

1976 Greatest Hits


Go to and find the year you turned 18, or the year you graduated high school. Bold the songs you liked and strike through the ones you loathed at the time.

The ones that aren't marked/struck through are either those songs which you don't have an opinion on or are ones you don't particularly remember.

7. Rock and Roll All Night (Live) - Kiss
8. Summer - War The smoothest of the smooth, I'm still a big War fan
