So you take the top 50 records from the year you were 18 from this
website, post the list and then -
bold the ones you liked,
and italicize the ones you knew but didn’t particularly like or dislike.
The ones you don’t know will still be in normal text.
I remember 1989 very well. I was going through a long torturous on-off long distance relationship with my first love (at the start of the year), taking my A-levels (in the middle of the year) and coming over to the UK for the first time for my University years and meeting my husband (towards the end of the year). Gosh, that was so long ago........
Here's my 50 songs.
