Last night, it was like it was 1989 and I was 13 again.
I was reminded of sitting in my bedroom, playing cassette tapes on my little red tape deck, really loudly and singing at the top of my voice.
And then, when the song ended, I would rewind the tape and play my favourite song over again… and then over again… and then over again.
And back in 1989, one of my favourite songs was called “If I could…” by an Australian band called 1927.
I say “one” of my favourites because as a 13 year old girl, favourites (of anything) change regularly. I’m sure you remember being 13 – don’t you?
Have a little look at the video I found on YouTube.
Look at that hair.
The first time I took heard of Roxette was when they their song, “It must have been love” was in the Pretty Woman movie soundtrack. Ahhhh the memories.
Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson (the Roxette duo) came on stage and I was transported back to the early 1990’s. Euro-pop at it’s finest!
They have aged a little bit (we all have) but they belted out their hits and the 1000’s of concert goers danced and sang along.
Marie (who would be pushing 60) still looked totally amazing in her tight leather pants and short spiked blond hair and Per danced around on the stage like he was a spring chicken.
Hubby and I had a fun night, reminiscing about where we were, when we listened to these songs - originally. He was still in England, and I was here on the opposite side of the globe. It’s amazing how life works out, isn’t it?
So it’s over to you dear reader… if you care to share, that is (please do):
Where were you and what were you doing in the early 1990’s?
