Matthew Sweet - Scooby Doo, Where Are You?
Divinyls - I Touch Myself
James Brown - Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing
April Wine - Just Between You and Me
Chuck Berry - Let It Rock
The Clash - This Is England
Bruce Springsteen - the Rising
His Name Is Alive - Wish I Had a Wishing Ring

RE: Your cooldown?

I had the 45 single of "My Eyes Adored You" as a kid. My sister and my stepsiblings and I used to put on "shows" for our (poor) family, and part of those shows was always lip-syncing popular songs. Just hearing the name of the song has a weird Pavlov effect on me. I'm suddenly nine years old and back in the basement again, singing lead.

So close.

So close, and yet so far...

Mike, thanks for sharing that.

I remember being eight or nine and lip-syncing duets by Donnie and Marie with Jeanie, a neighbor girl across the street where I grew up. So I can relate.

Glad my little list evoked a memory. Figured that's why I'd post them. That and to just see how truly random the shuffle can be to me. It never ceases to surprise me.
