It's about time for another meme...

Remember that great music from high school? If you graduated in 1990, like I did, then probably not, 'cause popular music sucked! It was when "alternative" music really was alternative and didn't make the charts, obviously, because when I looked up the top hits of 1990, there wasn't a single one that I owned nor would have paid a quarter to select on a juke box.

So, if you want to follow along at home, here's what you do:

A.) Go to
B.) Enter the year you graduated from high school in the search function and get the list of 100 most popular songs of that year (I stopped at 20, because I didn't recognize many at all after that).
C.) Bold the songs you like, strike through the ones you hate and underline your favorite. Do nothing to the ones you don't remember (or don't care about).

Top 20 Hits of 1990:

1. Hold On, Wilson Phillips
2. It Must Have Been Love, Roxette
3. Nothing Compares 2 U, Sinead O'Connor
4. Poison, Bell Biv Devoe
5. Vogue, Madonna (it's fun to dance to)
6. Vision Of Love, Mariah Carey
7. Another Day In Paradise, Phil Collins
8. Hold On, En Vogue
9. Cradle Of Love, Billy Idol
10. Blaze Of Glory, Jon Bon Jovi
11. Do Me!, Bell Biv Devoe
12. How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, Michael Bolton
13. Pump Up The Jam, Technotronic (more fun dance music)
14. Opposites Attract, Paula Abdul
15. Escapade, Janet Jackson
16. All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, Heart
17. Close To You, Maxi Priest
18. Black Velvet, Alannah Myles
19. Release Me, Wilson Phillips
20. Don't Know Much, Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville (I don't think this one bothered me at first, but after hearing it a gazillion times, I'm not a fan)
