When I woke up this morning I really had no idea what topic I should use for today’s post. I know I didn’t want anything heavy, depressing or thought provoking. I wanted something light and fun. But what? I needed inspiration.
I had the TV on in the background and inspiration hit. I was listening to a talk show and they were talking about the top song in the country the year the hosts graduated from high school. I had my topic. I decided to take it a step farther and list the top song from different milestone years in my life. Thank goodness you can find such useless information on the internet. This list is courtesy of just one web site – https://thestacker.com/stories/2629/1-pop-song-year-you-graduated-high-school
So, here is a list of music from 10 notable times of my life, no years included’
