You know i can't resist when one of these comes along. This one's stolen from jenndolari.

Go here. In the Search box in the upper right hand corner, enter the year you graduated from high school. The first item returned should be the 100 songs from that year. Cut and paste them into your journal. Bold the ones you like. Underline your favorite. Strike through the songs you loathe. Italicize the ones you can't remember. Leave it untagged if you're without an opinion.
