Great list. I find myself singing Laurie Berkner without the kids around too.

I like how you broke up your list. :) I'm eclectic too - and we must be from the same generation, as I had a sticker collection and remember Solid Gold too. I'm also guilty of enjoying Laurie Berkner - maybe more so than my daughter! :)
I just found out she has a special on Noggin tonight, and I set the DVR!
