What Would You Sing?

I am going to take a short detour from memory lane to discuss American Idol last night. The theme of the night was songs from your birth year. That made me wonder what the Top Ten songs of my birth year (1977…gasp) were and what would I pick? (Please note these were taken from a website and not necessarily official!)

1. Stayin’ Alive – The Bee Gees
2. We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions – Queen
3. Heroes – David Bowie
4. Best of My Love – The Emotions
5. God Save the Queen – The Sex Pistols
6. Brick House – The Commodores
7. Dreams – Fleetwood Mac
8. Paradise by the Dashboard Light – Meat Loaf
9. I Feel Love – Donna Summer
10. Jamming – Bob Marley and the Wailers

Hmmmm…I think I would have to go with “Stayin Alive”. I could definitely have fun with that one! Maybe I could get the crowd into it too! But there is always “Paradise by the Dashboard Lights”. I KNOW that Chris would LOVE that!! 🙂 ha ha

Then my mind wandered and I looked up the birth years of my brothers. There are some very interesting choices..

1980 (Timmy)

1. Call Me – Blondie
2. Celebration – Kool & The Gang
3. Another One Bites the Dust – Queen
4. You Shook Me All Night Long – AC/DC
5. Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division
6. Whip It – Devo
7. Upside Down – Diana Ross
8. Fame – Irene Cara
9. Back In Black – AC/DC
10. (Just Like) Starting Over – John Lennon

(Can’t you just see Tim singing “Whip It” or “Fame”?? I would pay money to see that!!)

1989 (Baby Brett)

1. Fight the Power – Public Enemy
2. Like a Prayer – Madonna
3. Rockin’ In the Free World – Neil Young
4. Free Fallin’ – Tom Petty
5. Love Shack – B-52s
6. Fool’s Gold – Stone Roses
7. Me, Myself, and I – De La Soul
8. Back To Life – Soul II Soul
9. Pump Up the Jam – Technotronic feat. Felly
10. Bust a Move – Young MC

    I was also born in 1977 and the songs from our year are very disco heavy. I looked up some more songs from 77 and found the one I would do…Blinded By The Light by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. The biggest reason: can’t you just picture all of those burn out your eyes lights on the Idol stage glaring into the audience. There would be enough light to light up a 3rd world country…sort of like Michael Johns performance from last night. The whole world would be blinded by my light!

  2. Jess says

    That would be a sight to behold, Sonia! AND you would be wrapped up like a DUECE!! 🙂 You also would be seeing spots for weeks!

  3. Andrea says

    Rick Springfield-“Jessie’s Girl”

    Because this is one of the only songs that I recognized on the top ten list from 1981!

    (I may change the words to “Trav’s Girl” instead.)
