Remember that 80's song? By John Waite? I just saw an infommercial for 80's Gold featuring 138 songs from the 80's! Can someone loan me 4 payments of $29.99 + $11.99 shipping and handling?
Boy do those songs bring back memories. Back when I didn't realize that the Georges were gay. You know....Boy George and George Michael. Back when all I cared about was having a cute outfit, big hair and perfect makeup. I was always in pursuit of some guy. Mainly ones who didn't care anything about me. Yep. Those were the types I went for. Not on purpose, mind you. It just always worked out that way. They had to be cute and unattainable. When I think back on it now, I actually want to like, gag myself with a spoon. Of course my role models were Ferris Bueller and Daisy, Kat and JoJo from Mystic Pizza so go figure.
I still love 80's music. Some of my favorites are Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - I've Been Waiting For A Girl Like You - anything by Rick Astley or Mr. Mister and songs from movies of that era like Dirty Dancing and Pretty In Pink. My best friend, Kendra, and I used to park at Quincy's steakhouse in Hendersonville and dance to the car radio. Boy, did we look dumb - rocking out in neon colors with leg warmers on and our hair pulled back in a banana clip. Our parents wouldn't let us listen to loud music or rock music period. So we had to take it to the streets. Ahh....good times. heehee
So what's your favorite 80's tune and/or movie? Give me a call....the number's 867-5309.
