Watching my favorite 1980s movies again! I adore them. For some reason, I never clued in until now that Richard Blade, one of the DJ hosts from First Wave on Sirius/XM radio Channel 33 (who plays the best songs, IMO), starred in Girls Just Want to Have Fun as the host of Dance TV....I knew I recognized his voice from somewhere!
On Saturday, we watched Say Anything with John Cusack, I love the scene of him blasting In Your Eyes:
Speaking of In Your Eyes, I am getting a little ahead of myself here and entering the 1990s, but check out this 1994 concert clip from Peter Gabriel's Secret World Tour -- Paula Cole rocks this song -- IMO the best backup singer Peter Gabriel has ever had (the rest of Peter's band is awesome too and those outfits are insane!!!):
Check out this one too:
Lately I've been looking online for record players/turntables. I have been collecting vinyl for about 15 years now and I've found some good stuff. I think there's something authentic and 'real' about vinyl recordings, they don't have that tinny purrrrfect quality that today's recordings have. People were so creative back in the day ..... I've always loved listening to albums as a whole (Harvest, Dark Side of the Moon, Bella Donna, Hounds of Love, Rumours, The Joshua Tree, So ...... I think we've lost some of that with Itunes and singles being released these days.
I will leave you with another 1980s gem (including the hairstyle, high tops and oversized outfit):
