SOTD – It’s an oldie but goodie

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m a child of the 80s through and through. Knowing that Casey Kasem was going to debut Duran Duran’s The Reflex on America’s Top 10 was the highlight of a Saturday night. Well, that and watching Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live right after. Those were definitive years for a grade schooler.

Madonna’s Material Girl? Oh man, my friend Teri and I had to go out and get those rubber bracelets and lace gloves ready for that. It was exciting.

And so, in that vein, I purchased this song for my daily commute. It drove Erik kinda batty this morning with me dancing and singing along loudly in the car, but well worth it:

 

 

As I explained to him, this song came out during a summer where I spent all my time at the city swimming pool doing lessons, and later on going to summer recreation at the high school. That was fun because I could run and jump and not get into trouble.

“Hey! Stop jumping off the roof! Stop running around in the street, you’re going to get run over! Stop jumping all over your sister!”

What’s a kid to do??? 🙂
