    Music I Can Relate Too

    I can relate to so many songs from the eighties. Like my motto no music no life. Without music what would life be like. I don't even want to know. Those songs for the past have so much meaning to my life and helped me through out the years. The music these days heck I can't...

    Love My Way By The Psychedelic Furs

    There's an army on the dance floor It's a fashion with a gun, my love In a room without a door A kiss is not enough in Love my way It's a new road I follow where my mind goes, they'd Put us on a railroad They'd dearly make us pay For laughing in their faces And making it our...

    The 80's Rock!

    There's a sound and style that the 80's have that has been changed in Rock. Not that I don't like today's music, I just miss the 80's sound. However the fashion of the 80's is slowly coming back. Electronic Music has taken the 80's fashion and Fonts. Snowboarding has brought...

    Those Were the Days

    Ahh... The days of 80s music. Music today is just not the same, at all. I even listen to the 80s station on tv, alot. if people think I need to move on and get into the present, that is their opinion. I'll always be an 80s girl at heart.

    Funky Town

    While growing up some tunes stick with you. While the collection of LPs etc that I have inherited of the 70s seem much better than what was available in the 80s, The fact that I had listened to them gives it some fondness. Michael Jackson was the stand out of them all. Funky...
