I heart nostalgia

Today I've been listening to a local radio station which also broadcasts live online.
"106.5 The Arch - Plays 70's, 80's & whatever we want"

They just played Micheal Jackson's 'Beat It'....come on, you know it was a snappy little tune back in the day. I couldn't help but sing along and try my darnedest to remember what Michael Jackson looked like with dark skin, curly hair and a human nose. It didn't work. I'll spare you any photos.

Next, they followed up with some 'Animal' by Def Leppard.

Classic. I found myself remenissing about old friends and wondering what has transpired for their lives. There were some great times before jobs and adulthood took over. Life certainly was different then.

At the risk of sounding like our parents, you know, they just don't make music like they used to. Some of you may say - good! But not me, I love music from my era as well as music from say, my mom's era too. I have a strange taste in music which transcends time and genre. I am just as comfortable listening to country music as contemporary Christian or old 70's rock and roll...I love it all! Even some of today's music!

'Stone In Love' by Journey is on now...actually I remember watching Friday Night Videos with my cousin and seeing Journey for the first time. 'Any way you want it' was my introduction to rock and roll....the rest is history!

Try being in your 20's and hating most of todays popular music. HATE IT. I'm pretty much a classic rock chick. Can't deal with rap or that "hip/hop" junk. Give me some AC/DC any day.
