Hurray for 30-Something Twilight Fans!! I was starting to feel like an old crone.
For me, the most vivid memories i have from the past three and a half decades is the music. Oh, and Corey Haim. I know, I know, but I've always had a thing for vampires and when Lost Boys came out my walls were suddenly plastered with photos of Corey H (even though he was never a sexy vamp like Jason Patric).
My favourite tv show in the 80s was Starman. I don't know if anyone remembers it or not...it was subsequently cancelled and a huge letter-writing campaign was undertaken to try to save the show. We failed miserably.
Back to the music...I loved Duran Duran, Prince, The Cure, The Smiths, The Violent Femmes, Michael Jackson, Dirty Dancing Soundtrack, Pretty in Pink Soundtrack...I still get a little misty when i hear the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and sometimes i get jacked up when I hear "Love is a Battlefield." Music has always been my saviour, even though i wasn't really allowed to listen to it when I was younger. It didn't stop me though--people would make bootleg cassette
tapes for me. Remember cassettes???
