Continuing in the same theme...

We get Rolling Stone magazine. Okay, I get Rolling Stone magazine. (Don't judge me. A year's subscription came free with one of my concert tickets, and then it turned out to be very cheap to renew. Now you can judge me.) I look through most of it and not just for the political articles, but I share with my husband the "From the Vault" on the back page whenever it hits a time we remember. This issue had the Top 10 Singles for September 12th, 1985 (you may now recalculate your judgement :-)):

10th: Pat Benatar: "Invincible" from the movie "The Legend of Billie Jean"
9th: Prince and the Revolution: "Pop Life"
8th: Wham!: "Freedom"
7th: Aretha Franklin: "Freeway of Love" ...in a pink Cadillac
6th: Phil Collins: "Don't Lose My Number" (which isn't "Ricky, Don't Lose My Number"!)
5th: Huey Lewis and the News: "The Power of Love"
4th: Kool and the Gang: "Cherish"
3rd: Dire Straits: "Money for Nothing"
2nd: Tina Turner: "We Don't Need Another Hero" from the movie "Thunderdome"
1st: John Parr: "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)" from the movie... feh, figure it out

There were three I didn't recognize even after YouTubing them, but most brought back some good memories.

OH 1985 WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MUSIC YEARS IN THE WHOLE WORLD.

Seriously, it was a year I woke up and paid attention to music. I remember all those songs so well. Ahhh. Lovely.

Then you must know this song? (If not, you have to, now! ^_^) :

I ADORE that song. That one and "Stacey's Mom" make me delighted to be a 40-something woman.

Yes, I love this one, it's so very sympathetic!

It was a hit in 2004, when I really did have two kids in high school, but my daughter claimed she didn't think I was uncool even if I was even older than the subject of the song, lol! (Of course, if she'd said otherwise, I might have stopped taking her to the KISS-108 megaconcerts, one of which actually had Bowling for Soup.)
