A little background on this entry. I was almost going to skip this or write about a few songs from 1988. Let me start by talking about my dad. He pretends to know a lot about music, but only the kind he listens to. Which is pretty much metal and blues rock. It took me a while to compile this list. When I first started I think I had 5 songs. Maybe a little more but no more than 10. Not as long as the 1998 song one only because I was really into music in 1998 and that list is so massive. In 1988 I was not really listening to music because I was 4 years old. I was really into music in 1998 when I was 14. These songs were in the order I complied them in.
1 “Don’t Worry be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin
I remember when everybody was wearing those “Don’t Worry be Happy” shirts. I remember they were a common sight on The Price is Right.
2 “It Takes Two” by Rob Base & EZ Rock
3 “Baby I Love Your Way” by Will to Power (cover)
4 “Parents Just Don’t Understand” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince
5 A Little Respect by Erasure (couldn’t find an official video)
6 “Straight Up” by Paula Abdul
7 “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses
8 “Need You Tonight” by INXS
I don’t know for some reason I really liked this song as a child. It’s so danceable!
9 “Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car” by Billy Ocean
10 “Desire” by U2
