Warning ~ Non Foodie Post

What WAS I listening to in 97?? Because it seems like I don’t know anything on here..
Alright, I’ll fess up. I am an oldies/weird music/opera/classical music fan. The only reason I knew any of these songs is because they played them at my university dances.

Looks like we graduated the same year. I agree with many of your hates (especially Celine Dion). Fun list though.

I'm so with you on the Candle in the Wind thing. I was a huge Elton John fan waaaaay back when, and he just ruined it for me with that remake.

I have the Elton John single in the package un opened... I got it as a gift and it became a bit of a joke.
