Do you find yourself watching that VH-1 show "That was the 80's" every time you flip by it???

OK. I admit it. I do!

As a teen of the 90s, my favorite station on the radio is the 90s station (satellite radio divides by decades). The nostalgia puts me in a good mood every time. :)

And I love the VH1 show, "I love the 90s!" :)

Ooh, I'm right there with you, groovin' to most of those songs, and Phil Collins and Elton John... I've been delighted recently that somebody-or-other has done a cover of "Walking on Sunshine", which I remember by Katrina and the Waves. Makes me smile and feel good every time I hear it in the grocery store.

But alas, I haven't listened to pop songs on the radio since the 80's, so most of the 90's and 2000's go right over my head. Now I mostly listen to jazz, classical, folk and celtic, and 1,000,000 kids' songs of course!

Enjoy your "retro" fun. By the way, our kids love the Beatles, and it's fun to have all 5 of us sing along together in the van.

Oh my goodness. You really are getting old.

Sorry.

But things tend to get better the more you understand.

Tess, just this morning my husband emailed me the words to 'right said fred' "I'm too sexy". Fortunately, in Fiji, there is a great radio station that plays the hits of the "60's, 70's, 80's, 90's...and today"

they say that whole 'schpeel' quite regularly, I'd trip over my tongue with that much to say! However, they do throw in a lot of Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray and Dolly Parton. I usually switch to the younger station and listen to eminem when I hear "Islands in the stream"!

You do totally love the 80's, I might come out of the 80's closet if you were willing to support me whilst all my hip hopping friends shun me....after all, I'm too sexy for this song.

so the radio station at the laudry mat is the greatest soft rock hits of the 80's...im in heaven...rick HATES it, but I can sing along to every song and people think that i am a song guru...mainly b/c mostly college kids from the art school across the street use that lundry mat...and they are like 12 years old... there is a station up here called Mike 93.5...and they play EVERYTHING w/ no DJ...its a great station...kind of like the laundrymat...
Oh and HMV...they play it loud b/c they think it sounds better that way...I always got a headache on the esclator on the way up to the store...at least the one in central...xo lyns

Hi Tess and Charles (you lucky man)
I LOVE your blogs... I've just rediscovered them.
You both write so wonderfully. It really makes me feel like I'm back in HK and also makes me miss you and the Union Church gang so much. Lezah, the kids and I have been back in Australia for nearly three years now.. and we STILL miss it. Having said that, we're very settled in our home town of Brisbane and I can feel the roots digging deep (sigh). I look forward to seeing you again hopefully one day soon - either in HK OR on a Caldwell family vacation to Oztralia ?!?!
Do let us know if you plan to come down this way. We'd love to see you again.
God Bless,
Ty *+Lezah, Vaughan and Olivia x

"my eighties, my memories, my music. my goodness."

YES!!! Feargal Sharkey isfrever burnt into my brain, if not retina. Actually retina as well. And Falco! And and and - am getting giddy. I love watching "That was the 80's" as well!

But actually, I pity the kids who don't have the chance to experience the 80's music, I thought it was brilliant. I cannot understand half the lyrics these days myself but have the added bonus of blaming it on my being a foreigner. ;)
