I am a child of the 80s.
I wear fingerless gloves and lacy hair scarves tied in big bows. My hair is tall and practically glued in place with Aqua Net. My roller skates are used frequently. I fail at Rubik’s Cube. And I love the one hit wonders.
- Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler
- Mickey by Toni Basil
- Heart and Soul by T’Pau
- Toy Soldiers by Martika
- It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls
- 99 Luftballoons by Nena
- and about a zillion others.
The song below is my favorite. I contemplate adopting their stance: “You’re friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance, well, they’re no friends of mine.” It’s as good a reason as any to choose a friend, eh?
This post is part of the Blogging A to Z Challenge. My theme is Musical Memoir. Each Monday through Saturday, I explore personal memories through my love of music, inspired and coordinated by the letters of the alphabet. Join in the fun and participate in the challenge, or leave a comment and enjoy some conversation. Thanks for reading. Peace.
