Stolen from the queen of irrelevant media memes that somehow fascinate me. What were you listening to the year you graduated high school and (because I need to be a bit different) do you still listen to them?

1979 (*Still Listen)

The Clash *
The Cars *
The Tubes
The Ramones *
An EP of some synth band going by OMD that we saw at The Park West.
Blondie *
Eric Clapton *
Bruce Springsteen *
Roxy Music
The Kinks *
Patti Smith Group * (Her version of “Rock and Roll Star” still gives me chills and I grin when I hear “Frederick” because of a girl who used to sing in my ear, Tim-o-thy…long story…you’ll never hear it.)
The Who *
Meatloaf *
Joe Jackson *
Nick Lowe *
Dave Edmunds *
Elvis Costello *
Graham Parker
U.K. Squeeze * (Mostly for the guitar attack at the beginning of “Annie Get Your Gun”)
Warren Zevon *
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers *
Utopia * (Just downloaded a bootleg live concert off iTunes from 1979…Rundgren kills me…always has.)
Bob Marley *
The Police *
The Band (Soundtrack to The Last Waltz) *
Okay…okay…Soundtrack to The Rocky Horror Show (Original London Cast…I know that doesn’t make it better.)

Here’s a Handy Little Reference Guide to Music. And I can’t believe how much time I’ve spent on this post…
