I found that the 30-second clips at AllMusic helped refresh my memory on several of those I know by sound but not by name or artist--I mostly heard new songs by listening to the radio at that point, and I think radio stations were even worse then about announcing what was being played than they are now. (At least now, some stations will post the day's playlist on their website...)

I was a lot more judgemental about music then than I am now, and my opinions on a few of those have flipflopped or moved to neutral since then, but there you have it. Also, there are a few "neutral" tracks that I didn't hear until I got to college, so even though I had/have an opinion on them, I hadn't heard them at the time.
