Top 100 Hits of 1969

If you are going to your 40th high school reunion this summer, this is some of the music you might hear there. Time flies, and it has been forty years since 1969. Life was better back then. Well, not really. We had a war going on. Gas was cheaper, but so were wages. We worry about terrorists today, back then we worried about communists. Today, we worry about global warming, back then we worried about nuclear war.

But, we did have Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In to watch on TV, and could listen to The Beatles and The Doors on the radio.

I got the list from www.musicoutfitters.com.


Here is the top 100.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009. He will be missed; he made so much beautiful music.

Hundreds of people attended an impromptu flashmob at London's Liverpool Street station and sing and dance to "Bad."



Here are some of my favorite Michael Jackson songs.

Off the Wall (1979)







Thriller (1982)







Bad (1987)







Dangerous (1991)









With the Jackson 5

Good bye, Micheal. Your fans will miss you, but your music lives on.

Protecting Your Computer Screen

You're reading something interesting on the web, or playing a game, when you are supposed to be working. Someone walks up to see what you are doing on your screen. You could minimize the screen, so they can't see, but then they would know that you were up to something. Now, you can make the screen hard for anyone other than you to read.

Best Keyboard Cat Ever

This video is entertaining on various levels. First of all, it has the keyboard cat1 in it. Then it features Helen Hunt from the 1982 Back to School Special Desperate Lives. Add yourself a little Hall & Oates, and you have yourself a winner.



1Keyboard Cat: the latest Internet meme. You take a video where someone makes a mistake, and ends with the cat playing. Like this one or this one.
