To this day, I still get the shudders when I hear back to school and would rather think back to my vacation. By the way, this is my hubby’s Aunt’s view from her livingroom. I was going to post songs about back to school but I thought I’d rather post 3 songs that were huge in 1983, the year I went to university. I am joining Monday Music Moves Me over at Curious As A Cathy, a wonderful blog created by a wonderful lady. So here they are…
1. EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE BY THE POLICE
You know, I’m not a big Police fan although I do really like this song that was a humongous hit in 1983. As much as I like this song, I hate, I mean, hate, “Roxanne”…it’s very annoying to the extreme. I had no idea the band members hated each others guts and were in fisticuffs while creating this song and others at the height of their fame.
2. SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS BY THE EURYTHEMICS
I love the Eurythmics especially the wildly talented Annie Lennox and this was a great song with a great video that seemed a little weird. Actually, Dave Stewart reminded me of the great director Josef Von Sternberg who had Marlene Dietrich as his muse whereas Stewart had Annie Lennox. They created some great tunes and I have their greatest hits CD.
3. COME ON, EILEEN BY DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RAIDERS
This is such a great 80s song that I danced to so many times that I can’t count. It’s considered an iconic new wave song and is one of the best of the 80s. I just find it fun!
What songs came out when you went to school, be it grade, high school or college/university?
