I like to listen to the online 80s radio station while at work. The music brings back all sorts of memories that make the work day a little more interesting. Here are a few from this morning:
Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two…- a-ha
Memory: My best friend (not yet back then) C crying when Morten Harket had to throw himself against the wall in order to break out of his animated self.
I heard a rumour
Ooh, ooh, I heard a rumour
They say you got a broken heart
I heard a rumour – Bananarama
Memory: A class of 36 trying to do a choreographed dance – can you picture it? Soaring spirits one minute, hurt egos the next. Ah…teenage girls – swirling pools of hormones! Loved every crazy moment!
She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky – Guns N’ Roses
Memory: A signed autograph in a year book project when I was about 17, from a boy I had a huge crush on. It’s safe to say that he was sweet on me.
In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along – Billy Joel
Memory: After a few stints on a teen radio show, I joined the AV club in junior college and attempted to share my taste in music to mostly deaf ears (which 17 year old is awake at 7.15am in the morning when our “show” comes on the air at school?). A favorite of mine was this Billy Joel ballad.
These days, I still find myself adding to the soundtrack of my life but that will be fodder for my future posts.
