i had much the same problem with my graduation year. it was too much work to strike through everything i couldn't stand, and the reason why i can't stand the ones i can't stand is because they were played out.

The reason I can't stand most of this list goes deeper. I couldn't stand them them, I really hate them now.

"don't like" doesn't begin to explain my disgust with that song, and Kiki

Can I just die now instead of actually doing this meme? My list starts out with: "1. Love Will Keep Us Together, The Captain and Tennille"
*hangs head* Of course it's not MY fault I graduated that year - blame ms_dblk!

Looks like 1976, the full year I was a DJ at WHGR in Houghton Lake, MI.

The songs from the year I graduated High School are broken up into several segments, college, summer and high school, ooh, ooh. A better chart would be a July thru June, which nobody does, to go along more with a school year. In high school senior year, I was mostly listening to the underground FM stations (WKNR-FM and crazy WABX - 99& 1/2 FM), while at college I was playing at being a top 40 DJ at the student run radio station (WRS).
