Back To The Future: A Fun Meme

I think all of us are suffering from some sort of nostalgia neurosis. There are so many of us posting about our teen years, the prom, big hair, bad acne, and just plain gaudy attire.

So I figure I'll just go with it.

I saw this meme over at Big Mama's and decided to play along.

Favorite Song From Childhood: "I Love" Click and listen. It is really sweet. Mama used to sing it to me. She never liked the "bourbon" part. :>)

Favorite High School Dance Song: Pretty much anything Miss Janet wanted to sing. I tried to learn all of her dance moves. And let's not forget Paula Abdul, before she was sparring with Simon.

Senior Class Song: "Lean On Me" (I think!) I remember it being the one I didn't vote for.

Favorite Rock & Roll Song: I like the guitar solo in the beginning of "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen. I don't feel tardy.

Favorite Disco Song: Hmmm... this one is hard. I like the songs from Saturday Night Fever. Classic movie.

Favorite Country Western Song: "The Dance", Garth Brooks. Makes me cry every time.

Favorite Pop Song: I don't listen to pop much these days, but I love Gnarls Barkley "Crazy" and I like Kelly Clarkson

Favorite All Time Love Song: Hello! The entire Chicago and Air Supply collection.

Favorite Break Up Song: "Hard Habit to Break". And don't make me sing it for you in Winn Dixie.

Favorite Make Out Song: Um, what? I have no idea what you are talking about.

Song That Always Makes You Cry: Besides "The Dance", "Held" by Natalie Grant always makes me bawl like a baby.

Song About Your Kid/s: "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder. "My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride

Song That Reminds You Of Your Husband: "The One" by Elton John- our wedding dance

Favorite Gospel/Praise Song: I still like the old time hymns. And I like "Crimson" by Nichole Nordeman. It gives me chills.

Favorite Ringtone on Cellphone: Don't laugh. I have a new cellphone now with a regular ringtone, but my old cellphone played "Play That Funky Music Whiteboy" and I loved it! I miss it. I need to search for it and add it to my new phone.

Have a great weekend! I will be on a bloggin' break for a few days. I might just have to rent The Breakfast Club and work on my break dancing...

"In my Daughter's Eyes" - had that played at my wedding to my "new" husband as my oldest daughter walked down the aisle. She was the best "bridesmaid" ever and she loved her dress! ha ha!

Martina (first name basis) is coming to my town and I'd love to go see her!

Have a nice break!

I love Play that funky music white boy and I'm only in my 20s. That song will never get old. Gotta love when Taylor Hicks done it! SOUL PATROL (Sorry, the Bama coming out in me!)

I love In My Daughters Eyes, such a great song!!!!!

Great list!!!! I actually knew most of the songs!

Big Mama said...

Great choices.

Air Supply. Heavy sigh. I loved them. Very fun list. You reminded me that I LOVE the song "Play That Funky Music." That is a great song for a cell phone.

Susanne said...

Be still my heart! Someone else who likes "Air Supply". You are a girl after my own heart!

Amy said...

This is a fun meme to do. I did mine several days ago. I forgot about Hot for Teacher! That's a great song!

Roxanne said...

"I Love". . .that Tom T. Hall song--fond memories

Tammy said...

Oh, fun!
And back in the day, there was nothing like Air Supply and Chicago! In fact, one of my reception songs was an old Chicago song...sigh...
And I went out and bought Air Supply when I was in college. You know...back when it was an LP. :)
Great choices...but now I have Play that Funky music, white boy running though my head. (And when I was young, I use to think it was play that funky music, Right, opposed to...wrong.) ;)

As my second daughter was being born via c-section, the song on the radio in the OR was "Isn't She Lovely". Even the nurses and the anesthesiologist were teary. It's a priceless memory...

Hubby vowed then and there that he'd dance with her to that song at her wedding some day...
