One thought on “Top 100 Meme

  1. A frightening realization about my memory and place in the world: I recognize maybe six out of the 100 songs on my list. I graduated in 2002.

    (Only one is marked as "tolerable". That particular song is by one of my favorite modern rock-and-or-roll kids and I consider it to be one of their most annoying.)
