Wow Milli Vanilli was huge that year, I didn't realize that sang or didn't sing so many top 100 songs.

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

Natsthename said...

And, man, you're SO YOUNG!!

honkeie2 said...

Damn i cannt remeber half of the songs from 1994...I must have scratch that..I was way to drunk at the time, momment, year,,,,

Jenn said...

I will now commence singing (hide your cats and dogs) and I'm making up the words as I used to sing them, so I'm not 100% if they're correct exactly...but it sounds like it.

"I Remember Holding you. The feeling felt so right. No I find I'm reaching out, in the middle of the ni-ight.....even though I know it's wrong, so wro-ong." (Mellow Ballad)

"Keep On Movin'...yellow is the color of sunrays. Kepp On Movin' Keep On Movin' Don't stop like the hands of time."

"I don't know what color your eyes are baby, but your hair is long and brown. Your legs are strong and they're oh so long and you don't come from this town....I Feel I'm on top again lately, that's got everything to do with you-hoo-hoo. I'm Alive. Oh, ho, so Alive."

"I don't wanna lose you, loooose you now. We're gonna get through somehow. I don't wanna lose you now or ever 'Cause baby I've finally found The courage to stand my ground."

I think the other should've been "The Promise" which was in the end of Napoleon Dynamite. "I'm sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say. I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be, but if you wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me. I Promise you, I Promise you I will. I will."

Thank you. Remember to tip your bartenders. I'll be here all night! :)
