Young Lovin' on a Music Monday

"And yoooooooou... decorated my life..."

You'll be glad you did!)

My recent Flashback Friday post has sent me to the Way-way-wayback Machine to the Summer of '82. When my hair was its original color, when I could survive on four hours of sleep and when my possibilities were endless. I consider that summer one of the best segments of my life -- first job, first love, first maturity. Confident. Fun. Happy.

True good times.

In honor of that, here's a playlist of songs that I listened to during those heady, balmy months between graduating from high school and starting adulthood.

And yes, there's plenty of Kenny Rogers on here. In those days, I spent A LOT of time with him crooning in the background. By the way, for maximum effect, he's best listened to while getting whiffs of Polo cologne. Trust me. It's like an instant aphrodisiac.

Wow. Is it hot in here, or is it just me...

Summer of 82

Wow, this IS a blast from the past! I was into slightly harder stuff, but I still know all those songs!

Why, it's Clark! said...

I remember all these songs too. Throw in some Hall & Oates, Prince and Tom Tom Club and I'm having my own Wonder years-esque flashback.
