The Song You Snogged Your Hand To… (“Life’s a Journey” series, Week 7).

Last week we celebrated some of your first memories of Movies. This week we are turning our attentions to music. Specifically, the music of your youth which moved you. We are talking about that time when boyfriends were a thing of the future, and the only things you had to love were your teddy and your hormones. Join in with your own Post, or just chat with us, below.

Starsky or Soul?

Although up until this point I had been a die-hard Starsky girl, this one turned me right around.

I can remember stacking the 7 inch vinyls onto my record-player-in-a-suitcase thingy, and patiently waiting for this one to drop.

Music has a way of evoking certain memories and when I watched this video back for the first time in what must be about 35 years (note to self, must stop checking dates, it only make me feel older) the emotions came rushing back in.

Full of pre-teen angst and desperate to be loved, the lyrics never used to fail to make me weep. Hilarious!

Enjoy….

Now, tell me, what were your ‘go to’ records as a young ‘un? Which were the songs that made you dance around the bedroom with your imaginary boyfriend?

  19. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t speak about
    these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!

  20. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
    to another platform. I have heard great things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my
    wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly
    appreciated!
