"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Flashback Friday!

For the month of April, Flashback Friday will feature selected music from the '80s.

80's Edition- Love Songs

I had David Coverdale's hairdo at one point in the 80's. *grins*

I can remember listening to the radio back then and hoping that the guy I had a terrible crush on would dedicate this song to me. *blushes*

RIP Dan, you are missed.

This song makes me think of Mr. Hairball as we were good friends before we fell in love with each other.

I've always loved this song and Steve Perry's voice.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Awesome choices! I love Whitesnake and my mom's favorite singer is Dan Fogelberg, so I grew up with his music.

Heather Cherry said...

Can I please TELL you how much I love 80's music??? I think I'm gonna do a "Top 10 Songs on My 80's Playlist" post soon.

For some reason the last vid isn't showing up for me but I adore Journey and Steve Perry.

Hairball said...

Thanks Ken! It's hard for me to only pick a handful of songs as I kept finding more and more that I liked.

Heather Cherry, that is very odd that the video is MIA for you! The song was Faithfully by the way.

*brandishes gun and waves it at the computer* Listen up Mr. Computer. Don't make me pull an Elvis on you for not working correctly!

I should have known better than to watch these. Oh, the memories that are flooding my mind. *sobbing*

Just as an FYI: Dan Folgelburg's "Leader of the Band" song is part of the dedication page in my dissertation. My father passed away before I finished and I dedicated my work to him and included some of the lyrics.

*sniffle* *snort* I have to get back to work now.

Sorry to bring back some bad memories for you, Dr. Julie-Ann.

I can't imagine how hard it would be to have someone close to you to die while writing your dissertation. The process is hard enough when you don't have any upheavals in your personal life.

I think it's lovely that you dedicated it to his memory.

just let me say O M G! I'm really into 80's rock and let me just say that those videos sure bought back memories. Remember bands back then like Bon Jovi, Europe, Journey, Def leppard?

Sure! I've been working ahead of time on my Flashback Friday posts for this month. Since the theme this month is 80's music, I've spent a good amount of time this past week listening to 80's music at Imeem.
