• Get Into The Groove

     

    It’s day 4 of the Blogtober20!

     

    So,  I absolutely unashamedly have to go with the song title of todays prompt ‘Get Into The Groove’

    Firstly TUNE! I don’t care what anyone thinks this track from the soundtrack from Madonnas iconic movie ‘Desperately seeking Susan’ is a dance floor killer!

    Admittedly, I am not the biggest cheesy pop fan but the nostalgia the movie brings is insane.

     

    Nostalgia

     

    Let me take you back to the days of the 80’s if I may. If only I knew then what an iconic era I grew up in.

    The music and fashion influencers of those days were enjoyed by all generation’s all over the land. Something that is profoundly missing these days (How old do I sound?)

    Culture Club, Aha (Morten Harket was my pin up), Prince, Tears For Fears, Whtney, George Michael and the list of course goes on.

    I’m proud to say my 17 yrbold daughter Kia is begining to appreciate some of the classics ftom the 80’s and the 90’s.

    It brings me such a feeling of total joy when I hear her playing classics from my school and college days.

     

    80’s family playlist

     

    It’s  a shame not many kids these days aren’t exposed to the old tunes enough to appreciate them.

    So, of course I thought I would be a little indulgent and put together a little cheeky 80’s family playlist. Songs all generations in my family and friendship groups enjoyed partying to (and my family loved to party) especially back then.

     

    So get your Pina colada’s at the ready or a can of Skol if your prefer and enjoy!

     

    1 Chaka Khan – I Feel For You

    2 Luther Vandross – Never too much

    3 UB40 – I got you babe

    4 Tina Turner – What’s love to do with it

    5 Madonna – Holiday

    6 Janet K – Silly games

    7 Lionel Richie – All night long

    8 Alexander O’Niel – Criticise

      The 80’s was a fab era. I am glad to say that my girls both love the music from then and the 90’s. I sound old saying it but it is much better than the music that’s in the charts now x
