Sing out loud, sing out strong!
AD picked up this meme, and for some reason I wanted to play. Usually, I don't like memes, but OK, maybe I'm just antisocial.
And then, DW tagged me, so I guess I have to.
Here are the rules:
1. Go to the Billboard #1 Hits listings
2. Pick the year you turned 18
3. Get yourself nostalgic over the songs of the year
4. Pick 5 songs and write something about how these songs affected you
5. Pass it on to 5 more friends
I also took AD's Take on this. Apparently, we have a bit in common. I was also only 18 a couple of months, but in '87. So, I took the list between October '87 and Oct. '88.
Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
Here I go again. It says it all. As an 18yo, I had done it all, and seen it all. There was nothing new to me. Somehow, the keep inventing new stuff though, and I've never seen all of it. I just liked the idea of being an experienced grown up, even though I wasn't.
Foolish Beat - Debbie Gibson
Are you kidding? Debbie was HOT!! And I really am just a soft cuddly guy. I'm sensitive OK? I am just a sucker for a ballad.
The Flame - Cheap Trick
"...Whenever you need someone, to lay your heart and head upon, remember after the fire, after all the rain, I will be the flame."
Devotion, dedication. Loyalty. Again, I'm just a big softy.
And, I made out to this song once, so it's a keeper.
Hold On to The Nights - Richard Marx
My Jr. and Sr. years in high school, there wasn't much for us to do. We were in a small town, and mostly lived in the country. So, we had a lot of "pasture parties". We would go to someones dad's pasture, have a big bonfire and hang out being teenagers. The nights were fun. Lots of friends, and everyone was invited.
Sweet Child O' Mine-Guns N' Roses
Loved the guitars in it.
Love Bites - Def Leppard
Loved Def Leppard. Loved the intro on the guitar.
So there you go. And consider yourself tagged if you want to join in.
