Feeling lazy today.

Go to In the Search box, enter the year you graduated high school. The first item returned should be the 100 most popular 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.
Leave normal the songs you're "meh" about.
Put a "WHO?" after songs you've never heard.
