Lesson Learned? - the next time Charles gets married, someone warn the Pope

I thought that you'd all like to take a look at this list. It's in descending order, from 100 to 1. Heh.

Top 100 songs of 1981

I recognize some of the songs, but I haven't heard some of the other ones (but now I know about that "Elvira" song...thank you, VH1 and Loni Love).

Long live Foreigner, Journey, Styx, and REO Speedwagon. They're some of my favorite bands ever, ya know. ♥

I caught the 1981 episode of I Love the 80s: 3D a few days ago...so this might be something of interest.

They did a little segment on some machine called the Osborne 1 (which was pretty much the first laptop). The damn thing weighed 23 1/2 pounds, had a tiny 5-inch screen, and had these weird floppy disks that couldn't even hold that much information!! A five-inch screen?! Insane!!!

Wow, I'm glad that technology has advanced so much that we're not stuck using computers like THAT anymore!
