Day 8: Just Posting to Post

Hello! I'm not sure what I have to tell you today. It's a beautiful day outside. Travis and I took a long walk this morning, and then I sat down to write for several hours. After lunch, I went to the bookstore to get the new Christopher Paolini book for Jack and picked up a book of vegetarian soup recipes for myself.

Then I lifted weights, walked some more around my neighborhood, and went to pick up Will. Now I'm home, and in a few minutes I'll leave to get Jack. When I get home, I will probably put the borders on my pinwheel quilt and make dinner.

I'm reading The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Euginedes--so far so good. I loved Middlesex. Reports are that this novel is not as good as Middlesex, but that's okay, because Middlesex was brilliant, and we can't expect novelists to always write brilliant books. It's unfair.

The Marriage Plot
is set in the early 1980s. In an early scene, a young woman and her parents are eating bagels at a cafe when the song "Tainted Love" comes on the radio. I remember that song. It was a very exciting and new kind of song in 1982. I was eighteen and lived for very exciting and new songs.

And that is all I have to tell you. Was it worth tuning in for? Don't answer that! But you could tell me what your favorite song in 1982 was. I'd be interested to know.

For you I have Googled Top 100 Hits of 1982: Eye of the Tiger (still can't sing more than a line and no idea what it means),I Love Rock and Roll (I had the skinny jeans, denim jacket and Adidas Kick), Don't You Want Me Baby (hung with heavies, but wanted to be the Human League), recognised nothing between 13 and 51, don't remember You Could Have Been with Me but definitely remember Sheena Easton ha ha ha, and finally (Oh) Pretty Woman- the movie that put a whole new spin on Careers Advice. Ask your friend from Belfast if she knows that joke???

1982 had some catchy tunes. Monster Hit was Eye of the Tiger. Played it in marching band like thousands of others. It rocked the stands. Rosanna by Toto. Played it in jazz band and still love the saxophone lick. I admit to a crush on Huey Lewis in the 80's. And then there is the pop perfection of Everything Little Thing She Does is Magic by the Police and Centerfold by J Giles Band.

I thought I was "oh-so-cool" liking The Cars "Shake It Up." I also had major crushes on the guy hair band, Flock of Seagulls. I remember cranking "I Ran so Far Away" so loud that my dad threatened to take away my boombox-FOREVER! My feminist self was ignited by the thought of an all-female band so The Go-Go's had a special place on my mixed tapes. My fav. Go-Go's tune was "Vacation." I still think it's fun to listen to when we leave on trips with the kids. It's the only one that's made it to my iPod.
Thanks for the trip back to feathered hair (no one had a better "feather" than Danielle) and leg warmers.

In 1982 I was listening to lullabies with my first baby.
Let's have some pictures of Travis. I am dog-starved.

I Googled the Top 100 too and recognized lots of favorites, but Journey was a band that was Big where I lived. John Cougar and Steve Miller Band too. Hubs and I were just married back then and we listened to quite a bit of country/western music so I recall Willie Nelson's You Were Always on my Mind. Tom hated WN (and still does) but I always liked his style of singing, especially Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain.

Glad you're still pumping those weights!

Tracy said...

In 1982 I was still in Primary school and was living in a 3rd world country where popular music rarely made its way that far north of Australia.

Your posting for the sake of it is still way more interesting that what I would be inclined to say at the moment. Your timing is impeccable because you always make me smile.

I had to google it like Mags did. Africa by Toto. LOVE that song! Still not sure why though....

Blessings!

I didn't have a favorite song in the 80's. I was too busy having babies.
