I can't believe I am listening to A-ha right now. I just wanted to know how the popular music of the mid-80's sounded now. I prefered listening to Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Iron Maiden back then (what a metalhead!), but I find 80's music to be quite nostalgic and some songs are just great for screaming along to in a dorky fashion. A prime example would be one of the greatest one hit wonders of all time 'Come on Eileen' and 'Tainted Love'.... I actually got a copy of the top 100 one hit wonders of all time. I was curious with A-ha because I thought they released a fair bit of stuff, but 'Take on me' was #8. Perhaps this was an American list since even Sinead O'Conner, Divinyls, Faith No More (WTF???), and even Aqua did more than Barbie Girl. Still, I like compilations and I like listening to stuff I haven't heard for 10+ years.
I heard yesterday we will be returning to the 'glass house' (where we stayed for Labor weekend) in a week and a hal for the weekend. Since there is no TV I hope the hockey ends in 6 or less games, otherwise we'll be looking for a sportsbar! Same thing applies for the Lakers since the inlaws MUST watch those games! (okay okay, so I am an old Payton fan, but still...)
Anyway, time to get stuff ready for tomorrow as we have to drive four hours for the big appointment, and have to stop at a couple of places before it happens....then time to watch the game!!
