The Monday Scavenge: 1/10

It’s that time again, and we’re about to head out for the evening.  For today’s scavenger hunt, I was going to ask for a song from the year you were born.   That’s a terrible challenge I wouldn’t even answer.  Instead tell us about and link us to a song that had significance to you at a pivotal moment in your life.  Mine’s after the break.

Picture it: Indianapolis, Summer 1988.  A young girl has a license to drive and gigantic Oldsmobile at her periodic disposal.  She’s the coolest girl at the 4H fair when she not only wins a Grand Champion ribbon for her burnt sugar lemon quick bread, she rolls up listening to this:  (And holy tomato, this song is still awesome.)

I slow danced with some really cute boys to this song, as well.

Image Credit Mine was also an ’83, but it was gray and did not have that bitchin’ T-top.   It did have a V8, and it would go a solid 95 MPH without shaking.   Hypothetically, of course.

Selena, I still like that song, the video is another story. It’s pretty and well shot, but lo Al is so earnest with his video acting. Tee hee.

Unpopular opinion: I liked acid washed denim, and still do.

My song would have to be “Our Love is Here to Stay”. I used to sing Gershwin tunes to newborn Freako, my firstborn son, from when he was in utero and while I rocked him to sleep. Here’s a clip from “An American in Paris”, the film that started my adoration of Gershwin tunes.
