The Running Man is #100 to reach 100k

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Estate

 

Last night as I posted my thoughts I realized I was about to reach that point level only achieved by a small group of members.  At the beginning of the year when I accidentally ran into ActiveRain the ten thousand point barrier seemed like a daunting task...... Ten months later this post pushes into six figures.

My mind began to wonder... How many member reach 100k?   After a little research I found that I would be a somewhat historic member of the group...  Member number #100 to reach 100,000 points.  As a dozed off I was clueless as far as what to post for this big one.

Woke up this morning with the idea of selecting 2 songs I like that were released during the last 50 years.  Anyone that follows my blog is most likely aware my musical taste is well rooted in the Classic Rock of the 60's and 70's.  When Disco came along I was one to say Disco Sucks.  While the years continued on into Grudge and all that Rap Crap my ear happily stayed behind. 

Selecting songs from each year turned out to be a little difficult.  Over time we all hear the classics from decades past and selecting songs was fairly easy.  Seem my brick wall was 1988.  Don't think I was alone in the realization that late 80's music was pretty bad.  Many of the artists I enjoy must have also noticed because they went back to work in the early 90's.

In the mid nineties I decided I had aged enough and stayed with my musical collection of the day. I'll leave space for the younger crowed to enlighten me.  Was there any decent music for Classic Rockers to enjoy during the last dozen years?   Feel free to link in the comment section and include the year it hit the charts...

Neal...  With all the people here it's impossible to follow everything.  If we keep up with 50 or so people we're doing good.

Karen... Age is just a silly number... Mine is fresh in my mind since I just had to adjust the time on my Heart Rate Watch that I use for running and while scrolling through the options the age 32was very clear. Yes... I had to shave a few year off my chronological age so the monitor didn't miss classify me...  :-)

Dan, 32?  If I did that, I would definitely have a heart attack! I know you are younger than I, in fact, I would venture to say most of AR is younger than I!! Age doesn't bother me, because I can still outlast my children!  Athough the grandkids are a challenge.

Hi Dan--Congrats on joining the 100000 point club! I agree with most of your musical choices but what is it with guys and Jethro Tull? I just don't get that music and every male I know think they are awesome....Anyway. A few new bands that I really like are The Fray, Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie and Five for Fighting. My kids really like System of a Down and Linkin Park...And Weird Al Yankovik along with REM, Queen, AC/DC and other old stuff. I get weird stuff on my MP3 when they add new music.

Karen... Maybe a couple years younger... But age is getting harder and harder to detect.

Suzanne... Maybe your Pillow Talk post will Tee Me Off....  :-)

Teri... You lost me with most of those new bands. I don't feel to bad though, my oldest son was looking at our youngest's laptop and he hadn't hard of many of the groups..

Suzanne...Don't insinuate I'm dreaming.... I distinctly remember a few days ago you saying something about a post called Pillow Talk with a real estate twist...  Writer's Block?

Dan,

Congrats! Wow! #100 to reach 100k, that is awesome and a big milestone here on AR. I read your profile. It looks great! By the way, how did you add the hyperlink to the profile section? I tried doing that and it showed all the html codes instead of the link.

Brad... A post like this is quite a bit of fun to put together.. The hours flew by...

Suzanne..  Just refreshed my memory... Guess it's a combination of both our dreams.... I did tossed out the title and you added the real estate twist....

Dave... When you edit your profile you add links and photos the same way you create you blog entries.

Hey Runnin Man Conratulation on the 100,000th mark! That must give you a lot of SATISFACTION  ... I remeber when I fist heard that driving down the Cape....

My favorites on the list:  Stay, Night Moves...Twist and Shout,  Money for Nothing was a good one, but if I were picking a fav Dire Straits it would be Sultans of Swing... Hey no Clapton???

What website di you use for your research?

Ginger... Noticed you were right in front of me when I hit that 100k.... Pick up the pace... LOL

Out I my run after posting the list all kinds of songs were running through my mind that I missed... Clapton, solo or with Cream,  Bad Company and many more....  Problem with scanning the charts as a memory jogger is that much of the best music may not be "billboard" hits.  This Site was helpful since it showed top 10's from the 50's thru the 80's.

You have great taste in music.  I'm with you, I don't know the names of the bands today.  I'll stick with the bands from the 70's and 80's they are enough for me.

Congrats on your 100,000 points and 100 post!

Tracy... Just can't beat the 70's..... Once I got into the late 80's it was tough to find selections...

 

Lucky...  Took me a little time to figure out where to find that list but here it is.  Go to HOME, pick one of the Membership Types along the right and that gives you a list based on discipline.  You can then select ALL in the upper left to get a list based on points for all members.
