  1. I have heard most of these. I was born in the 70' not so familiar. :)

  2. I remember all of these, and am quite happy to leave most of them behind.

  3. Just dropping by.. not playing this today.

    I was in my late teens when these came out so I remember them all VERY well.

    WAR! Good God ya'll! What is ii GOOD for? Absolutely nothing! *wanders away singing*

  4. I was born in 1968, so all of these are familiar to me; in fact, I hear some of them so rarely that it really takes me back when I do! Fun memories.

  5. I know them all! Does that mean I'm old?

  6. Jen...Fun memories indeed.

    Tammy :) I know them too and I am only somewhat old (38 years old).

  7. Someone once said OLD is always 10 years older than my next birthday - so it's okay for us all to know these songs - great list!

  8. Oh, wow! Now you've made me feel old! I remember all of those songs and absolutely loved the Jackson Five. I was 13, and my youngest sister was also born that year.

    Happy TT!

  9. I remember all of them and there's only one I really dislike!
