Ah, looking back with great affectionate to my decade, the 80s. I was ages 7 through 17 in this decade, to me the most significant in development. And absolutely the most significant for music. I still hold so many songs dear. So many songs tell a story of where I was at that time in my life.
This song finds me sitting on the back porch at my parents' home with two childhood friends...sisters. We used to play my "box" (portable radio/cassette player) and sing everything on the radio. We'd play our mix cassettes on there...ones we had taped from countless request hours with DJ Mitch from Power 92. One of the sisters especially liked this song, and she and I do this one together...I'd do background and she'd do the main part. What a wonderful time of life, even if then things seemed so dramatic. And what two wonderful girls who are still my friends to this day.
