I remember some of those---Bob Marley, Midnight Oil, and the Starship. I'm from the Seventies, though---so these are a bit after my time!

We have some gorgeous photos this week by a very talented photographer.

ellen b Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Oh dear I only recognize a couple of those names...

Mark Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Well they did tax blank tapes and give the record industry the cash to make up for home taping so technically all my tapes are legit :-)

And slowly but surely I'm buying the CDs of a lot of the artists. Its taken me 15-20 years to get round to it but better late than never.

darkdwarf Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Home Taping is Killing Music!
...Hold on a minute, it didn't did it?

Cindy Swanson Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Haven't thought of "Waiting for a Star to Fall" in forever! You really brought back some memories here.

Sarah Thursday, November 15th, 2007

I think I know a few...but I think these were a bit before me.

Happy TT!http://sassyfrazz.blogspot.com/2007/11/thirteen-things-i-am-thankful-for.html

Samantha_K Thursday, November 15th, 2007

I like #9 and #13. Midnight Oil - loved that song. I liked Jennifer Warnes, but don't recall that song.

Smiles,

Tilly Greene Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Some great finds - and you still have the tapes? Wow!

Still like hearing Walking in Memphis :-)

Walkin' in Memphis

And the Mannequin song, of course.

I loved that one. Cheesy chick-flick music.

I like the Bob Marley, too. ;)
Have a great Thursday!

Emmyrose Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Am I young or what? I only recognize a few :)

Xakara Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Is it bad that I had to immediately stop and listen to Sweet Freedom?

Michael McDonald was a big time crush based solely on how he sounded. I didn't even know you could have a "voice crush" before him. LOL

Great Flashback List!

I haven't heard of most of those, but it's a great list idea! I'm just not educated enough on music I guess.

Serina Hope Thursday, November 15th, 2007

# 7 is one of my all time favorites. Happy TT!

Wakela Runen Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Really great list. I knew 7 of them from your list.

susiej Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Sweet Freedom, and Walking in Memphis somehow bring out memories to me.

Oh, and definitely Beds Are Burning -- I remember a high school sleepover!

I did two TTs. this week.

Journeywoman Thursday, November 15th, 2007

I LOVE You're the voice.

Good list.

Rhonda Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Oh dear. How old are you? I only remember Walking in Memphis...(Mine's up!)

Rose Thursday, November 15th, 2007

By any chance did you grow up in the 80's? lol Beds are Burning use to be one of my fav songs.

Lori Thursday, November 15th, 2007

LOL, some of those brought back memories. I dont know them all but I knew a few;) Happy TT.

Sandy Carlson Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Almost forgot about Midnight Oil! What a fun list. I now feel my age. But it'll be okay. God bless!

WorksForMom Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Great list. I still love Pearl Jam and when Midnight Oil released that hit I overplayed it all the time!

Susan Helene Gottfried Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Oooh, oh my, there are some old, forgotten friends in that list! Great stuff to rediscover, Mark -- and thanks for helping me reconnect, too!

Nicholas Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Recorded from the radio?? Shame on you!

Janet Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

greatfullivin Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

great list..I am torn between 7 and 9. I am going to take 9. nice video too!

Tink Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

That could have been one of my tapes, great music!
My TT lists 13 facts about the black panther.

Sandee (Comedy +) Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

I only know #11 and that was a big favorite of mine. Have a great TT. :)

The Gal Herself Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Great list! You've got my three favorites lumped together in the middle -- 7, 8 and 9.

Chelle Y. Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

I do not remember any of them. Hopefully, they were before my time, or I am losing my mind! :)

Malcolm: Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Whenever I hear "Waiting For A Star To Fall", I think of a certain period of my life when I was living in Marquette, MI. Did you know that Boy Meets Girl (the writers of the song) offered it to Whitney Houston, but she turned it down?

"Beds Are Burning" is another favorite of mine. My girlfriend at the time didn't share my sentiment.
