Top four 1990 songs I did NOT skip: @MrsFacemelter I live to give! 😘 @TaliaBuford It was “Hold On.” I don’t know much beyond the hits, but I never heard an En Vogue song I didn’t like.“Forever” by Kiss @TaliaBuford Actually, scratch that; En Vogue just came on like, “Excuse me?” It’s mostly the candlelit love ballads that turn me off.“This One’s for the Children” by New Kids on the Block “I’ll Be Your Everything” by Tommy Page @TaliaBuford Most of that era’s R&B doesn’t do much for me. 🙁“Here and Now” by Luther Vandross @sanspoint I guess you could say the American airwaves’ version of Stockholm syndrome at the time was… Chicago syndrome.“Close to You” by Maxi Priest “What It Takes” by Aerosmith“Make You Sweat” by Keith Sweat “I’ll Be Your Shelter” by Taylor Dayne“What Kind of Many Would I Be?” by Chicago @trvsss Don’t worry, I didn’t skip “Hold On.”“No More Lies” by Michel’le @pixelmelter Check back later: https://t.co/yOgWfXGyd6“Release Me” by Wilson Phillips“Ready or Not” by After 7“When I’m Back on My Feet” by Michael Bolton @halvorson You sustain me.“Whip Appeal” by Babyface “Downtown Train” by Rod Stewart “Love Song” by Tesla“The Way That You Love Me” by Paula Abdul “Oh Girl” by Paul Young “Blaze of Glory” by Bon Jovi “Do You Remember” by Phil Collinsok yeah this was probably a bad idea“We Can’t Go Wrong” by The Cover Girls “Swing the Mood” by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers “Price of Love” by Bad English“How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” by Michael Bolton“Sending All My Love” by LinearI shall now begin updating you in real time which songs I skip as I shuffle this Billboard Top 100 of 1990 playlist. https://t.co/9GlAk3YxV7I condemn with the strongest wedgies possible this egregious display of dorkiness by D&D nerds rolling dice with many sides, with many sides

7 years in NYC. Every second feels temporary. Every day I add another memory to my inevitable, wistful “leaving NYC” essay. I ❤️ this city.Looks like I own just 6 of @NPR’s 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women, and, um, 8 of @Jezebel’s 150 Worst Albums Made By Men. So there’s that.How long is too long to wait for your food in most sit-down restaurants?I've been on twitter almost 11 years and I do think this is the best thread.
