Oh so very glad that you and the clan were in HK this holiday season, and not yet in Phuket. The messages coming in from people that you all know or that your friends know must be alarming & comforting all in one.

Can't imagine what it must be like for so very many families to be wondering about their loved ones.

The situation really is unfathomable, and two things that are resounding with me are 1) what an tidal warning system might have done to help save lives & 2) the scale in the physical sense of the tragedy. The amount of coastline impacted is so dramatic & to think of the regions of the world that we haven't yet heard from, and may not for some time.

We that are safe, have enjoyed our families, and know where are loved ones are, well, our blessing are to be counted, all around.


On a lighter note, my votes:

Sunglasses at Night - Corey Hart
Heartbeat - Don Johnson



Wake me up before you go-go - Wham
Heat of the moment - Asia

Also I was thinking about you last night when I heard on news about tsunami's and earthquakes. I was wondering how far away you were and if you were safe. Then I had dreams about fellow bloggers all night. Hopefully you are still safe and sound and happy holidays!

My worse memories of the 80's are as follows:

Manic Monday - Bangles
Anything by Cyndi Lauper,, no literally anything....
I've got a brand new pair of rollerskates..singer mercifully unknown
I think we are alone now..Tiffany

Tess , how about doing a favorite songs from the 80's list after you compile the results from this one. Move over Dick Clark!

Auntie Pammie

Ok, here are a few more..

Solid as a Rock....Ashford and Simpson
Saturday Night ..Bay City Rollers
Mickey.. singer hopefully dead
Tell me why I dont like Mondays..
Blinding me with Science. Thomas Dolby
I found Someone....Cher


all right...since terrible eighties tunes are haunting my waking and sleeping hours maybe writing them down will exorcise me....

meet me on the beach - no one admits to singing that one

calm before the storm - luba

pac man fever - another artist my mind has thankfully erased

dancing on the feet of the moon - parachute club (?? not sure of the name, just know they were annoying and sadly, canadian).

nothing's going to stop us now - starship

love is love - culture club

99 red balloons - nena

dancing on the ceiling - lionel ritchie

goonies are good enough for me - cyndi lauper

a lot of miami sound machine

get out of my dreams get into my car - bilyl ocean...and while we're on the topic, when th egoing get's tough was pretty bad too, and so was caribbean queen.

walking on sunshine - katrina and the waves

there are more, but it is time for the babies to get up from their nap.

& from me, well, crap, I guess Pammie & I aren't going to be listening to the same favorites from the 80's while we donate blood in Edmonton someday, because I really LIKE some of the songs that she's listed.....

And, BTW, S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night rocked & wasn't the 80's.

I quote a BCR fan site:

The Rollers were introduced to America on "Saturday Night Live", singing their failed '73 single "Saturday Night". The tune climbed the U.S. chart in late '75 and hit the #1 spot in January '76. The Rollers were on top of the world.

I'm off to sing - la la la...... xoxo

Oh Mickey, you're so fine you're so fine you blow my mind,
hey Mickey (huff huff), hey Mickey (huff huff)


tess.... gee, so many bad songs in the 80's, numbers only to rival bad hair and fashion trends (of which i so freely participated in).... my contributions are:

sussudio (sp?) phil collins
lies,lies,lies thompson twins
cherry pie- warrent

more later!.... lynn p.s keep posting those cute baby pics, hopefully some soon of christmas!! xx lynn

Auntie Pammie

Hey ladies,
Sorry about the Bay City Rollers screw up, I was off by a decade.

Boulder, how about we listen to the 90's while we donate ? I am a closet Corey Hart fan, so I understand the music thing, so we will stick to the 90's?

Auntie Pammie
ps) Tess,, you need to do the TOP 80's tunes....

red shoes

Glad to know you're all safe, was in Phuket a year and a half ago and watching the films is horrible. Also, LOVE the new photo. Happy New Year!
