A child of the 80s

When I was a teenager I thought Simon Le Bon and Duran Duran were perfection.
I wore New Romantic blouses, pixie boots and too much make up. Imagine me looking pretty much like the first picture in this look back post.
I listened to Japan and Visage, but never Spandau Ballet or Adam Ant.

Then I met my husband to be.
I was 16 he was 15, we were at school together and he so wasn’t into that sort of nonsense.
He was all Simple Minds and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Then he played this song and it reminds me so much of us meeting and starting out on this 18-year-journey together.

It’s a song very much of its time: The Breakfast Club, Molly Ringwald and taping the Top 40.

This post is for Brits in Bosnia who tagged me in a new meme she’s invented called the Stories and Songs meme in which she challenges us to name a song which reminds you of something. It doesn’t necessarily have to be your favourite, just one with a story which instantly transports you back to a time and place.

And I’m only passing this on to then men this time around. Four men who I know love their music and so, I’m hoping, will not throw darts at my profile picture for being tagged:

    It's funny – I can't hear that song without thinking of the movie The Breakfast Club.I used to love Duran Duran's music videos, as they took the time to make them interesting. I had recored some of them, and I do believe I still have them on VHS after all these years!
