  2. Type the following into the textbox: 1985.txt
  3. Click on the ENTER button (press the ENTER key on your computer keyboard will not work) and BubbleMachine will take you to the Tools page, where you can manipulate marker points, add more markers, or delete those present
  4. Without changing any of the information, click on the "Chart" button in the lower right hand corner of the Tools page
  5. From the Chart page, you navigate through the song by clicking on the control buttons (play, pause, and stop), by dragging the button on the progress bar that represents the length of the song, or by clicking on any of the bubbles (causing playback to initiate directly from that location).
