Oh to be Young Again-80’s Babies

What Jack up to? Jack is looking forward to a sunny and warm weekend in NY. Yes! Long walks, rolling in the grass and barking at the neighbors. Happy Jack!

And Happy Friday! Congrats on making it through the week. Whew, made it. With this nutty week it was feeling a little touch and go there for a while.

I’m leaving you all this week with one of my favorite 80’s songs. Who Do You Love by Bernard Wright.

For the longest time I had forgotten about this old classic and then it suddenly one day jumped back into my head along with the video image of Bernard and the pretty girl spinning round and round. I remember this was in the opening scene of the groundbreaking Video Music Box. Does anybody else out there remember that show with DJ Ralph McDaniels? I'm talking to you N and C, R and M!

Well, I couldn’t remember the actual song title or artist and I was obsessed to find out so I got on the phone and called Tower records in The Village and actually sang the song to a couple of workers until I got another 80’s baby on the phone that knew in the first three badly sung words that it was Bernard Wright and I could happily get some sleep. True story.



Best,
Kwana

I caught a bit of American Idol the other night. It must have been disco night because they were singing many of my very favorite songs. IMHO, the music from the 80's is some of the absolute best! Thanks for a great start to a Friday morning!

Have a blast this weekend!

what you did is just too funny!(I'd do the same ha!) The80’s babies should unite I'd say!!!

Sheryl said...

Let's define 80's babie, born in the 80's or say graduate in the 80's? LOL....I love the music from the 80's thanks for sharing. It was a great way to start my day.

Oops, didn't get this off before Maddie came by, tell Jack Hi for her. I think Maddie has a puppy crush. :)

wow this week went by very quickly! I hear the NY weather is going to be just wonderful so many happy walks will be good for all! We need lots of rain to wash away the ash and clean out the lingering dirty snow. I enjoyed the video, retro is fun!

I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful weekend Kwana! Is it really supposed to be 80 tomorrow?

Megan Frampton said...

Uh, hi, yes, I love this song. And I actually got drunk with Ralph McDaniels once. Although I think I was drunker than he was--it was part of a video music conference I worked. Good times, good times!

Kwana said...

You're welcome Deidra. I missed that AI.

Joyce have a great weekend.

Glad we think alike Lenore.

Sheryl I define 80's babes as coming of age in the 80's and identifying with the music so born late 60's early 70's.

Ina the week went by way too fast hope you get the rain you want.

N please let me know what C says.

Pat glad to being back the memories.

Day, Yes 80 or close tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend. we are weather proofing our deck.

Megan you have the best stories. Dj Ralph was such a trend setter. I want to hear more.
