I'm in the process of doing this myself. It's fun.

But I just have to say, you both make me feel positively decrepit. I know virtually all the songs on both your lists. As in, remember the original popularity of. And the ones I don't know I'm fairly confident I would recognize and enjoy if I heard them. :-(

And you really should listen to some of these ones that aren't bolded. Numbers 90, 91, 96, and 100 come to mind (I'm too lazy to actually look through the whole list for the best example...)

Ooh! A 1982 mix. To go with the 1970 mix I'm going to have to make after doing my own. I think my iTunes bill just went through the roof this month. :-)

I've been blessed with an mp3 player that doesn't like pay-download mp3's. It's hard to argue with my hardware, so looks like it's soulseek again today! But I buy so many cd's I really think I make up for it. :)

I have sound editing software that I just found can't edit mp4s, so I'm vexed. But I can convert mp4s to aiffs to mp3s

There were some nice songs that iTunes didn't have, but I now have a selection of songs from 1982 for you. And, you know, for me.
They're mostly happy - 1982 was a pretty upbeat year. There are a couple sappy songs because I remembered them so fondly. I'm not sure when the next time I'm going to see you is, though.

-Remind me to raise an eyebrow at you any time you complain about your age.

Will do. :-)

Although when I use words like, "ancient", "decrepit", or "practically dead", I'm not so much complaining as harkening back to conversations I had my last couple of years in college. When I was ancient and the alums who were hanging around were alternately decrepit or practically dead.

IRT your cut tag

So you are young but there are some great songs on this list.

P.S. Age is only a state of mind. Always thought you were wise
beyond your years.
