Gotta love the 80s

I've been busy cleaning this morning. When cleaning I can't stand quiet, I just must have music playing so I can get energized and psyched up ... cleaning is not the most fun chore in the world you know.

So I turned on the 80s XM channel and have been remembering some great times in my life. For instance, right now the New Kids on the Block song "Don't Go Girl" is on .... Wow! That one brings back some memories! I was 13 and so excited to see the New Kids on the Block in concert with two of my best friends. I thought it was the coolest thing to get the autograph of one the group's roadies. And, of course, when Jonathan sang the Happy Birthday song I just knew he was singing it to me - I was celebrating my birthday just days after that concert after all.

I admit it - I was a HUGE New Kids on the Block fan. I had posters covering every inch of my bedroom walls - mostly individual photos of Jordan and Joey because they were the ultimate cuties of the group. I even had a New Kids on the Block pillow case and the Jordan and Joey dolls!

So since I'm reminiscing of the 80s today, I thought I'd post a video of one of the best Monday songs of the 80s. Who remembers this one?

So enjoy the video and feel free to share YOUR favorite 80s memories, singers, bands, actor/actresses ... anything that made the 80s special for you.

BTW, I hear rumblings that the New Kids on the Block are making a comeback .... looks like I may bring out my New Kids on the Block T-shirt back out of hiding.

I'm a little older than you and the '80's to me, were my late teens and twenties. What a great time to be that age! Carefree and fun.

Oh goodness! I too adored the New Kids on the Block!! For one of the concerts I went to, I wrote a love ballad for them and waited in line for HOURS trying to get the guards to let me give them my son and gift. I knitted a sweater for Jordan cause I thought he was SOOOO cute. Oh, thanks for the memory recall. Gosh, now I need to go look through my diary and memory book from back then. I looooooooooved them!

I think I am a little older than you because my true love was Duran Duran. -sigh- I always loved men in make up and pink hair.

Flock of Seagulls, anyone?

Sorry I didn't mean to give them my son (how funny!), I meant to give them my sonG.

Oh the memories! I loved Duran Duran and Madonna. It was definitely a simpler time, wasn't it? :)
