I saw this nifty little meme at Dancing Star and Not So Everyday Mom and thought it looked like fun. Especially since I turned 18 in different years than these lovely and talented ladies! Even though Lisa thought I'd be the first to post this, I have to shamefully admit, I was not. Durnit!! I feel bad now. See what happens when you neglect your blog???? Oh the humanity!

Here goes:

1. Go to

2. Pick the year you turned 18

3. Get yourself nostalgic over the songs of the year

4. Write something about how the song(s) affected you

5. Pass it on to 5 more friends

I graduated high school in 1995 (at the ripe old age of 17) and I turned 18 in October of 1995. So, here's what I found for 1995.

  1. Boombastic - Shaggy: I had such a thing for Shaggy's songs. I loved the Jamaican thing he had goin' on. That's hot!

  2. Any Mine of Man - Shania Twain: This was my "I am woman, hear me roar" anthem of 1995. This song helped shape the expectations I set for "any man of mine".

  3. Here Comes the Hotstepper - Ini Kamoze: This wasn't necessarily a good song, but it was a good dance song and it really pumped us up. I remember pumping this song LOUD and just lovin' it!

  4. Waterfalls - TLC: I just loved the message this song sent. It was beautiful.

  5. You Are Not Alone - Michael Jackson: (oh Gawd, what's wrong with me?) Yes, I know, I'm sick. But, this was actually a fairly good song by MJ. I have it on my iPod to this day. But, that's only because I had the CD from 1995 - I didn't pay for it again, seriously.

That's it...there were tons of other songs, but seeing as how I LOVE music, we'd be here all day if I was to list all of the songs and how they affected me.

So, now it's your turn. Go do this now!
