Haven’t had time to update the site, so you get to enjoy this black/green theme for a another week.

Now time for this week’s topic - a repeat from a couple years ago, but we’ve got some new players…

1) “On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men - In college, we always used to stand in a circle and sing this together. What a painful song.

2) “You Got Me Up” by Cajmere - this is MY song. When it comes on I own the dancefloor, baby!

3) “Que Sera Sera” - Me and my sisters were singing this song on karaoke, then my dad told me to let Fatima sing, implying that I sucked. I haven’t had confidence in my singing since then.

4) “Supersonic” by JJ Fad - We’d always play this song on the cafeteria jukebox in high school.

5) “When I Fall in Love” by Celine Dion - it was the first song that Dave and I ever danced to.

6) “1979″ by the Smashing Pumpkins - Drunk in college at Manny’s apartment, with the video camera hooked up to the TV and making weird music videos.

7) “Move Along”by All-American Rejects - This song was in heavy rotation on VH-1 around the time Ben was born. Many late nights were spend feeding Ben and watching this song.

8) “You Light Up My Life” by Debbie Boone - I was lost in the house once, and my parents found me by listening to me sing this song.

9) “Those Were the Times” by Miguel Reyes - Gets me all teary eyed for my old college days.

10) “Nothin’ But a Good Time” by Poison - Good times driving around with Melanie, Ken and Maui in high school.

    Wow, what a supercool Ten on Tuesday this is! I thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing the songs and music.

  3. Hootin' Anni Says:

    Love your list!!! I love music, period!! Of course my music era is a lot farther back…….more ancient than yours. Almost back to the days of campfires, grunting, and drums across the villages!! lol

    My list is posted….it’s a large blog today for me, so you’ll have to scroll down some.

  4. Nino Says:

    Poison would be the one of the last bands that we’d have in common… Fun list. Glad the Ten on Tue is back!

    This made me laugh a lot. If I could cry I would have done that too. The boyz II men I am sure I had plenty of memories of as well like my first slow dance. Heck I have a lot of 6-7th grade memories of songs like that and Vanilla Ice.
    Well here is my list. I put a lot of thought into it. Check it out

  10. patois Says:

    I so could have included “You Light Up My Life.” Thankfully, it was eliminated from my memory bank. I really like the songs and the reasons you’ve given for remembering them.

    Mine is up.

    What a fantastic topic! I usually get the alerts but don’t manage to get a list together in time; this subject was different. Here is the link since I see I’m not a “player” — I think I’ve only participated once or twice. Hope I’m not barging in:
