The songs of our lives: A music meme


Mitch did this post about songs, and I thought, oh, hey, Mitch has a good idea once in a while, maybe we'll make that a meme and steal it. Sorry, Mitch. At least I credited you.

That's OK. We don't have much in the way of overlapping answers. But now I need to dig out my "Thriller" album. Thanks for that, Mitch.
