I was an 80's girl. Yes imagine, leg-warmers, big-hair, male band members in competition with female superstars. Pop music consisted of synthesizers, punk-rock, Madonna and the most classic of all....Hair Bands. Bon Jovi, Van Halen...the bigger the hair, the tighter the leather, the better. Hair Bands weren't my favorite, but there were a few of those songs that played on the radio all the time you couldn't help but love. Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer, Van Halen's Jump, Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me, Guns'N'Roses' Sweet Child of Mine just to name a few. These were the songs that stuck in my head. These are the songs that "take me back." The songs that the older I get, the more I appreciate the musical talent of these noise-makers (as my dad used to call them). Maybe it's the fact that some of the songs have made a come back. My teenaged sons listen to them on their iPods. Their classmates request them at their dances. They bring back the familiarity of driving on a summer night, windows open, stereo blasting and singing at the top of our lungs, "Whoaa! We're halfway there...Whoa-oa livin' on a prayer!" Music's like that you know. It can take you back - bring back the moment, the setting, the smells and the emotions. No matter which era was your popular era, certain songs, certain bands do that to you...they take you back. Hopefully back to the good times.
